Hot Cheesy Corn Dip

This is the best corn I’ve had all summer.

Because it’s baked with two kinds of cheese. But of course.

I love dips and make meals out of them, and this was one of the best meals I’ve had in awhile.

The dip literally takes five minutes to stir together, the best kind of recipe.

Combine corn, green chiles, cheese, mayo, stir, and bake. So easy.

It’s the type of recipe that’ll save you when you need a crowd-pleasing warm and hearty appetizer but don’t have time for anything fussy.

I got most of the ingredients for the dip at my local Von’s (Safeway) store.

They have the Safeway Summer Savings Sweepstakes running from August 5 to September 5, 2014. You can enter for a chance to win a $100 Safeway gift card daily. Five winners are chosen daily for 34 days. That’s a lot of gift cards.

I made the dip for a party and no one could resist it. It’s creamy with great texture from the juicy corn kernels and reminds me of the filling I used for these stuffed mushrooms. I used frozen corn so I didn’t have to deal with corn silks, but fresh corn would be lovely.

The chiles add an incredibly mild heat, but it’s flavor rather than heat since it’s faint. Spice it up with a shake of chili powder or cayenne if you want to truly put the hot in hot corn dip.

The dip screams football and tailgating, but let’s enjoy the last of summer before we starting thinking football.

Gooey cheese on crunchy chips with a refreshing drink to wash it all down with. Perfect comfort food.

People can’t resist this creamy, cheesy dip with great texture from the juicy corn kernels. The chiles add an incredibly mild heat, but it's flavor rather than heat since it's faint.

Yield: one 9-inch pie dish, 4 to 8 servings

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: about 30 to 35 minutes

Total Time: about 40 minutes, for batter resting and cooling

Ingredients:

2 cups frozen corn, thawed and drained if necessary (or substitute with fresh corn)
one 4-ounce can green chile peppers
1 3/4 cups shredded Sargento® Monterey Jack cheese (or Pepper Jack), divided (most of an 8-ounce package)
1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup Hellman's®/Best Foods® Mayonnaise or MIRACLE WHIP (lite versions are okay)
chips, crackers or bread for serving (try Pringles® Tortillas, Rold Gold® Pretzel Thins, NABISCO crackers)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and spray a 9-inch round pie dish with cooking spray; set aside
  2. In a large bowl add corn, green chiles, 1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, Parmesan, mayo (I used lite MIRACLE WHIP), and stir to combine.
  3. Turn mixture out into prepared pie dish, smoothing the top lightly with a spatula.
  4. Evenly sprinkle remaining 3/4 cup Monterey Jack cheese over the top.
  5. Bake for about 30 to 35 minutes, or until cheese has melted and is bubbly, or is as golden browned as desired.
  6. Serve immediately with corn chips, tortilla chips, bread, or your favorite dipper. Dip is best warm and fresh, but will keep airtight in the fridge for up to 5 days. Reheat gently if desired or serve chilled.

    I need a quick appetizer to take to work tomorrow so I’m between this and the baked cheese and salsa dip. I think my co – workers would love either!

      Hmmm, this one is ‘lighter’ and fresher tasting if that’s possible for a cheese-based dip because of the juicy corn. Loved that element and unlike lots of other dips out there. And the baked cheese and salsa dip because of the layers of stuff, cream cheese, cheese, salsa, etc is more ‘heavy’. LMK what you go with!

      The baked onion dip and the spinach artichoke dip are two personal faves, too. Not to complicate things.

    This is straight up Wisconsin! But frozen corn is VASTLY inferior to fresh. At least here it is. It’s sacrilegious to use frozen corn in any recipe in the summer and fall months. There is a guy here who sells fresh sweet corn from the back of his truck, and when he is in town, the line behind his truck can stretch for 10 blocks, no joke. Not of cars….of people! We call him the cornman, because we’re really cleaver. :D

    I realize that comment has nothing to do with your post, but this recipe reminds me so much of WI/midwest and I knew you’d appreciate it.

      Wow, that’s a LINE. If I’m waiting in a 10 block line, it’s definitely gotta be for way more than corn :)

    My wife has made something very close to this for quite awhile. The only difference is she adds sliced black olives and chopped red peppers. The idea of using left overs to stuff mushrooms is awesome and we will be doing just that tomorrow. Thanks for the idea.

    Have you ever done this in a crock pot? It sounds so good, but I want to be able to keep it warm for an extended period of time for a cook out! Mmm cheese. Mmm sweet summer corn.

    • Averie Sunshine replied: — August 26th, 2014 at 9:05 pm

      I think it would be wonderful in a crockpot, although I haven’t personally tried it. Just keep it on low so the cheese doesn’t actually keep cooking, but just stays soft and warm, and you should be set!
