Adventures in Everyday Entertaining
When I saw this Fresh Corn Dip from the Chef Mimi blog, I knew that it would be perfect for a potluck — or just to have as a tasty appetizer at home. With only a couple modifications (namely garlic — almost everything should have garlic 🙂 ), this dip became a huge success! It’s creamy, cheesy, and just the right amount of spice!
Southwestern Corn Dip — modified from Chef Mimi
Remove the corn from the cobs by using a sharp knife. Break up any chunks into individual kernels. Cook the corn in boiling water for about 10 minutes, or until done. Drain the corn and set aside.
Heat the butter in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and peppers to the butter and sauté for about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté for another minute.
Add corn, cream cheese, and mozzarella. Stir together, allowing everything to melt together. Add cilantro, as well as salt and pepper to taste. Stir to combine.
Transfer dip to a serving dish. Serve the dip warm with tortilla chips.
This sounds so sinful and YUMMY!
Thanks Laurie!! 🙂
This is so different and I bet delish!
Thanks Cynthia! And it was… my husband devoured it so quickly I’m lucky that I didn’t get bit in the process. lol
Drooling as I read this post….. Splendid recipe….
Thanks so much!! 🙂
Whoa. I love corn, and this sounds fantastic.
Thanks Chris! I’ll need to make it for one our next potlucks! 🙂
This looks so delicious! I’ve been on a super weight loss kick since April, but this recipe is definitely being stored on my list for recipes for cheat days. What a perfect dish for a family gathering, a summer BBQ, or football season. I can’t wait to try it!
Thanks Caitlin! Yeah…not quite a recipe for a weight loss program. But definitely worth cheating for! 😉
This sounds so good!!
Thanks Suzanne! 🙂
Yum! Even my fussy eaters will love this. I have 2 camps. One loves it hot and the other doesn’t so I will omit the jalapeno for the blandies. Also I wondered what cilantro was but it turns out we call it coriander which we all adore. 🙂
Thanks! And it will still be really good without the jalapenos. 🙂
