The 2020 Holidays Recipe Collection
How you doin’? There is only one thing I don’t like about a nice savory dip—I eat so much that my appetite is ruined for dinner. This Hot Corn Dip is the perfect party starter. When you make this dish, you’ll find no one wants to move away from the appetizer table. The best thing to do is have a back-up in the oven ready to go and an extra bowl of chips.
We find that dips are among the most snack-able foods to bring to a tailgater or party. It’s the easiest way to make sure everyone gets a taste. Even with all the things going on you can make smaller individual baking dishes or ramekins so each person gets their own portion and you don’t have to worry about crowding around the dip bowl. This dip goes with any style of cuisine (except maybe Asian, although corn on the cob in Indonesia is a pretty hot snack).
If you’re looking for a corny-cheesy masterpiece that’s quick and easy to make there’s a lot to like with this recipe. Clean-up is minimal and you have great flexibility with ingredients.
You can use fresh, frozen or canned corn depending on what you have on hand. No matter what, the taste of sweet corn will be irresistible in combination with melted cheese and spicy green chilies.
Prep time: 5 minutes
Bake time: 25 to 35 minutes
Yield: 8 to 10 servings
1 (11 oz) can of corn, drained
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 (4.5 oz) can chopped green chiles
1 whole chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, seeds removed and chopped
1 teaspoon adobo sauce, from the can of chipotle peppers
1 cup shredded Monterrey jack cheese
2 cups shredded mild Cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground fine black pepper
1 small tomato, chopped
2 green onions, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
ChefSecret: Add your own style and flavor thrills to an already great dip. Add onion powder for more flavor or make it extra cheesy with an addition of bleu, pepper jack or sharp Cheddar cheese. If you want to add some spice, use diced jalapeño peppers, Tabasco sauce or add a dash of cayenne or chili powder.
Covid-19 Quip of the Day: “Imagine this, I went to the local Amazon bookstore to improve myself and asked the salesperson, "Where's the self-help section?" she said, “If she told me, it would defeat the whole purpose.”
