This dip. Oh, this dip. I love it so much I have been known to trade a proper dinner for a big plate of it.
I first had it at a Church potluck a few years ago. And then I had some more. And when no one was looking, I had a lot more. There were so many people that I had no idea who brought it, so I Googled “corn dip” when I got home to see if I could find the recipe. I had to have it. I could not live without it. It was sweet, creamy, and cheesy and I loved the flavor contrast from the green onions & chiles. I’m pretty sure I let out a squeal of triumph and glee when I found it on Allrecipes.
It has been in my “Favorite Recipes” file ever since and I bring it to almost any gathering that warrants a dip. Most recently, that was a sales event at my sister’s gift boutique where she served appetizers. When I arrived an hour into the event, she said she hadn’t had a lot of people yet but more than half the dip was gone (and it makes a big batch)! You may not go gaga for it as I have, but it’s always a crowd pleaser.
3 (11-oz) cans Mexican-style corn, drained
1 (4-oz) can diced green chiles, drained
5 green onions, chopped
1 (8-oz) container sour cream
1 jalapeno pepper, chopped fine
3/4 cup mayonnaise
10 oz shredded cheddar cheese
Combine ingredients in a medium bowl, mix well; cover and store in refrigerator until ready to serve. I recommend serving with Frito Scoops chips, which taste amazing with this dip, but it can also be served with tortilla chips. Or a spoon. :)

*I bought the Mexican platter in the first picture from Novica with a gift certificate I won from a giveaway on Girlichef (thanks, Heather!). Don’t you love it?! It was handcrafted & painted by the Castillo Family in Mexico, who designed it to emulate the classic majolica style of ceramics. Check Novica’s website if you haven’t before–there are some amazing one-of-a-kind things there! I also got some onyx earrings from Thailand–I love everything they have and love that they’re supporting artists from around the globe by enabling us to purchase from them.
