Mexican Corn Dip

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.

MEXICAN CORN DIP
Printable recipe
Printable recipe with picture

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. :)

This is how much the recipe makes-enough to nearly fill a 2 quart dish.

*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.

  7. To be completely honest, I’m just not a big fan of fresh corn. I love cornbread, grits, polenta…but not fresh corn. But seeing your enthusiasm for this dip, I’m suddenly feeling very generous. I think I like corn. And I’d love to give this a try. :-)

    • Although the corn is the main ingredient, it never really struck me that I was eating corn when I had it as a dip. The flavors all meld together to make something outstanding. I know you’ll never make it but if we meet, I will force you to try it! :)
