I love experimenting with new recipes, especially the comfort food type of recipes. Recently, I was at a family party and a guest brought a really tasty corn dip to share. Maybe I am living in a bubble or under a rock because, I never had corn dip…EVER. I knew after one bite, I just had to try to recreate this recipe. Plus, I love to make dishes that incorporate all the wonderful vegetables we grow here on our farm.
Remember back in the fall when I showed you how to freeze corn. Well, corn takes center stage for this dip and it was a perfect reason grab some out of my freezer. As I said before, there is nothing quite like sweet Jersey Fresh Russo’s corn!
I’m in Game Day mode and this Kicked Up Hot Corn Dip is the perfect recipe for your Game Day celebration. This dip has a southwestern flair. It’s packed with green chilies, Sriacha sauce, jalapeños and cheddar cheese and has just the right amount of spice.
Who are you rooting for? In my book, Game Day is all about the F-O-O-D!!! I’m cheering for this Kicked Up Hot Corn Dip Recipe because it is really Goooooooood!
