Hot Corn Dip Recipe

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 corn dip 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.

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

This hot corn 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!

What’s in Hot Corn Dip?

How to Make Corn Dip

Stir together the ingredients in a large bowl, then turn into a greased 9-inch pie plate. Sprinkle with additional cheese before baking.

Bake the hot corn dip until the cheese has melted and is bubbly, or is as golden browned as desired. This corn dip is best fresh from the oven, but leftovers will keep up to five days in the fridge. 

What to Serve with Corn Dip

You can serve almost any chip, cracker, or vegetable with this hot corn dip, but a few of my favorite things to dip into it are: 

  • Tortillas
  • Rold Gold pretzel thins
  • Nabisco crackers
  • Celery sticks 
  • Potato chips

Should I Use Fresh or Frozen Corn? 

I used frozen corn so I didn’t have to deal with corn silks, but fresh corn would be lovely as well. You can even used canned corn, but you’d need to drain and rinse it before mixing it into this corn dip. 

Is There a Mayonnaise Substitute I Can Use? 

If you’d like to make this corn dip a little healthier, you’re welcome to use Miracle Whip instead of mayo. You can also use lite mayo or Miracle Whip if you’d prefer.

Tips for Making Hot Corn Dip

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.

I like using Monterey Jack cheese in this hot corn dip, but I’ve also made it with Pepper Jack and enjoy that as well. Both add a slight spiciness to this corn dip that I love. 

If you wind up with leftovers, I recommend gently reheating them in the oven or enjoy them cold. A scoop of cold corn dip pairs nicely with grilled chicken the next day!

  1. I am a dip fanatic. This recipe sounds amazing! Thanks for sharing.

  2. 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.

  3. This creamy dip is about to meet my football-loving husband. It looks amazing. Pinned!

  4. 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.

  5. YOU are the best at making oeey goeey cheesey dips! Literally drooling right now!

  6. Oh my! This cheesy corn dips looks so addicting! I want some right now!

  7. Yeah, I could dive face first into this and call it dinner anytime. Love it.

  8. Oh my gosh, this recipe is killer! I guess your house was smelling wonderfully after you baked the dip. I could fill my house with cheese and corn everyday :)

  9. That dip look great! That’s totally my kind of snack :-)

  10. Totally digging the corn addition! We were just talking about making cheese dip. Dig it!

  11. Holy cow. This is, quite possibly, the best dip ever. Cheese and corn, my two favorite things! Pinned!

  12. Now this I wanna dive into Miss Averie!! Cheesy perfection :) Pinned!

  13. Corn dip yum! I can just imagine this with local sweet corn and Hatch green chili’s. I’m not ready for summer to be over yet but what a wonderful tailgating recipe.

  14. I’m making this today…I have so much corn from my CSA I was looking for a recipe to make and this will make a perfect dinner out on the patio.

  15. Oooh, corn dip is my favorite! This is perfect for football season!

  16. This dip sounds amazing, Averie! Corn, cheese, and chili peppers? Sign me up! Yum!

  17. Just hand over that whole dish and a spoon and I’m good to go!

  18. Yum! Basically anything cheesy is very crowd pleasing!

  19. 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.

  20. Just reading the ingredients I know that this is gonna be a winner. Cheese, spice, corn and mayo? Yep, no way that can go wrong! Face planting and pinning!

  21. Holy moly this looks awesome! This will definitely be on the menu at my end-of-the-summer bbq!
