Tex Mex Hot Corn Dip

If you love corn as much as I do then this will be your new favorite dip, and like the other evening, we added some shredded rotisserie chicken to make it a meal.

This is made up quickly by sautéing jalapeños, bell pepper and spices like cumin, paprika and garlic powder until tender. Fresh, frozen or even grilled corn is added to the mix and cream cheese and pepper jack cheeses are stirred in to melt.

Pour the hot corn dip mixture into a casserole dish, top with more cheese and pop it in the oven until hot and bubbly.

Now it’s time to dip through the ooey gooey, stretchy cheese to the hot corn dip!

Seasoned beautifully, not over powered by the jalapeño, but with the perfect kiss of heat. The sweet pops of corn and red bell peppers mix wonderfully with the warm spices and creamy cheeses.

    1. So sorry for the late reply as I have been away on a much needed vacation outside the USA. Needless to say, about your comment…Good question Peggy. I used a seasoned 9×13″ casserole dish, but you could use a smaller one for deeper dippin’ too!

    Delicious with the perfect amount of spice. I am making for the second time today. This time to bring in most to work. I can’t have this around the house. I eat too much of it!

    1. It’s great even before pouring into a casserole dish and adding more cheese on top. I just love all that extra cheese! I often bring it to parties that way in slow cooker. 🙂 Thanks Karly!

    Just in time for the weekend! That cheese in the first photo – SWOOOOOON! I would have a hard time sharing this one 😉

      1. Yes Talesha, you could use canned green chiles, which are milder. Be sure to check the label, they are usually right next to canned diced jalapeños! 🙂
