Reuben Dip in bowl

This Reuben Dip has a creamy consistency with a hint of saltiness, cheesiness, and tanginess from the sauerkraut. You can easily assemble the dip and then either bake it in the oven or warm it to perfection in your slow cooker. If you do not have smoked corned beef or pastrami on hand, good quality deli meat will work in a pinch! Simply chop, assemble, cook, and enjoy.
