Because when it comes to feeding a crowd, a corn dip like this is exactly what you need. It’s a snack everyone will enjoy and it’s easy to grab a portion while you mingle.

WHAT’S IN CORN DIP?

  • Corn: The star of the show! Canned corn is used to keep things easy, but feel free to use an equal portion of kernels cut from corn on the cob that’s raw or has been cooked/grilled first.
  • Mexicorn: More corn, but with a few extras such as chopped red and green bell peppers. You can also substitute this for southwestern or fiesta corn.
  • Sour cream and mayonnaise : Forms the creamy base of the dip.
  • Green onion: For color, taste, and a bit of crunch.
  • Shredded cheese: Because cheese makes everything better. Cheddar cheese is recommended because of it’s universal appeal (mild, medium, sharp) but feel free to use any blend you’d prefer (Mexican, Colby Jack, etc).

Ingredients:

  • 3 cans Mexican-style corn, drained (11 oz cans)
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 2 cups Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions:

  • In a large serving bowl, stir together the corn, mayonnaise, sour cream, green onions, cilantro, Cheddar cheese and lime juice.
  • Season with cumin, cayenne pepper, and salt. Stir to blend in seasonings, then refrigerate until chilled before serving.

WHAT CAN YOU SERVE WITH CORN DIP?

When it comes to party dips, there are so many options for dipping! Feel free to use any (or many!) from the list below:

  • Tortilla chips
  • Ritz crackers
  • Pretzels
  • Saltine crackers
  • Wheat thins

RECIPE NOTES:

I couldn’t find the corn with diced peppers, so I just used plain sweet corn and added in 1/4 cup of chopped roasted red peppers. Fabulous!

Also, take the time to make sure everything is drained really, really well. This dip can get runny if you don’t. Also the longer it sets, the more the cheese soaks up any liquids.
