Southern Corn Dip

Southern Corn Dip will become one of your snaking downfalls, cream cheese, organic sweet corn, sweet red bell peppers, spicy pickled jalapeno peppers, unsalted butter, Ro-Tel tomatoes, and Cajun Spices come together for an Epic Appetizer that can be served on crunchy tortilla chips.

I’m not going to lie this Southern Corn Dip has taken me, hostage. It’s that addictive! How can you go wrong with an appetizer that contains those yummy ingredients and can be served as a Southern-Style side dish or appetizer? I prefer mine served over crispy tortilla chips or corn chips, but you eat yours; however, you enjoy eating it.

My sister in law Angie makes a delicious version of her Corn Dip that uses canned Shoepeg Corn for a different texture, I use organic frozen yellow sweet corn, but either type of corn are outstanding in the recipe. So don’t be afraid to use your favorite brand or type of corn in the recipe.

When I make this, I love to top my portion with freshly diced avocados, oh my gosh so good! My husband hates avocados, so I keep it to just my share. Can you believe a born and raised Florida native hates avocados? Yep, along with watermelon, cucumbers, and several other things.

It holds up well in the refrigerator and can be reheated right in the oven or microwave without losing its integrity. Which means you can make double batches and not have to worry.

You can add a few different toppings to spruce it up if you like as well, such as crisp bacon, cheddar cheese, diced avocados, fresh slices of jalapenos (watch out for the seeds and membranes though Y’all, you don’t want to set your mouth on fire)

 

 

 

 

I have to apologize for the photos, and the weather has not been kind for natural lighting, so they are a bit off. I will probably be re-doing the images soon. Thanks for understanding my imperfections at times. I appreciate Y’all.

 

 

 

Tips for the Recipe

  1. Organic frozen corn is what I use when making the recipe, but in a bind, you can sub organic drained canned corn if need be.
  2. Let the Organic frozen corn thaw naturally in a bowl on the counter for about 30 to 40 minutes.
  3. Let the cream cheese soften naturally by placing it on the counter for about 30 to 40 minutes.
  4. Be sure to drain the pickled jalapeno peppers thoroughly before adding them to the recipe.
  5. Either Mild or Hot Ro-Tel tomatoes can be used in the recipe, depending on your preference for heat level.
  6. I use Slap your Mama Cajun Seasoning with low sodium, but you can feel free to use the brand of your choice.
  7. Don’t skip the hot sauce; it adds an exceptional level of flavor to the recipe.
  8. Buy quality Tortilla chips, and you’ll thank me later!

    This Corn Dip looks so creamy and I love how easy it is to make! I’ve never tried Corn Dip, but this sounds like it would be perfect with tortillas, bread, or even on crackers.
