Can I keep this warm in the crockpot?

Posted by   + Show Post
Black bean dip, for DS's bday party. Can I make it this afternoon and warm it in the crockpot on Sunday?

1 large can (12-16oz) black beans, drained
1 1/2 teaspoons taco seasoning
1 large onion, chopped
1 celery stalk
4 cloves garlic
3 slices bacon, crisply cooked
salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
pinch cayenne pepper
Fill a blender container half way with cold water. Cut celery into 3-4 chunks and onion into quarters; process in the blender (with water) until minced. Drain.
In a skillet, sauté celery, onion and bacon together until bacon is crisp, adding whole garlic cloves half way through cooking and allowing them to take on a toasted color and turning them once or twice. Remove the garlic to blender container if they begin to become too dark.

Drain bacon on paper towels. Add to blender along with garlic cloves and garlic powder, taco seasoning, cayenne, celery, onion and drained black beans. Process until well combined but some small chunks of vegetables remain.

Taste and adjust seasonings, adding salt, pepper, or garlic powder (if needed - some taco seasonings contain more salt than others).

Serve with your favorite tortilla chips garnished with slices of jalapeno, if desired. May also be used as a base filling in tacos.

Thanks! And this dip is really yummy! I think it will be fine heated in the crockpot.
