You must indulge yourself in this Hot Corn Dip! It is just that good. This recipe starts off with good sweet corn…straight off the cob. I managed to get some this time that was absolutely wonderful! Cooked in a little butter until the whole house smells so sweet. Then a few key ingredients are cooked and tossed in like onions, red peppers and garlic. Can’t miss the fresh garlic.
It all ends up tossed in a bowl with finely minced jalapenos , mayo, green chiles and the perfect combination of spices. This can be prepped in just a few minutes or mix it up ahead of time and pop it in the oven about 30 minutes before chow time!!
If jalapenos are not your thing leave them out. It is equally delicious yet much milder without them. As we say here at Small Town Woman…do whatever makes your heart go pitter patter!
This beauty can be served with fresh tortilla chips, scoops, crustinis or crackers. Use the leftovers on baked potatoes! That is if you have any. I have to kind of sneak them off.
