Hot Cheesy Corn Dip

Sweet summer corn transformed by cheese and spices into a creamy dip with a kick. A satisfying appetizer (or a main course over here) any time of the year, but extra special in these winter months where we’re longing for summer and fresh sweet corn.

Saute up those onions in some butter. Throw in the garlic and let it get fragrant for a few minutes.

I dug this sweet corn out of my deep freeze, but you can use frozen or canned corn.

Drain as much liquid out of the corn as possible. Throw in the corn, salt and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes.

Mix in the mayo, spices, jalapeño and half of the cheese. Mix well and scrape down off the sides of the dutch oven. Help your cleaning self out!

Sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top and bake for 10-12 minutes at 375. When the cheese has browned take it out and rest for a bit.

Garnish with fresh cilantro, avocado, green onions or even hot sauce if you prefer. We use Scoop Fritos but tortilla chips are yummy also.

Happy scooping!
