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 sidedish or appetizer? Personally, 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 own Corn Dip that uses canned Shoepeg Corn for a different texture, I use organic frozen yellow sweet corn, but either type of corn are really 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 own personal portion with freshly diced avocados, oh my gosh so good! My husband hates avocados so I keep it to just my personal portion. Can you believe a born and raised Florida native hates avocados? Yep, along with watermelon, cucumbers, and several other things.
One of the things I love about this dip is it’s even good if it isn’t hot, still has a great taste and texture. 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 Y’all for the photos, 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 really appreciate Y’all.
