This Easy Corn Dip is a delicious recipe introduced to me by a good friend years ago. It’s especially yummy with lime-flavored corn chips.

 

Serving Corn Dip with Tortilla Strips

The recipe is so easy to make and great for last-minute appetizer or snack when friends or family stop by to visit. If that happens, grab the following ingredients.

 

Ingredients to Make Easy Corn Dip

  • Mexicorn (two cans)
  • canned green chilies
  • sharp cheddar cheese, divided
  • minced onion or dried minced onion
  • mayonnaise
  • sour cream

 

Simple Directions for this Recipe

Ingredients for this Recipe

Gather your ingredients so that you have everything close at hand on the counter or table.

 

Prepare Your Ingredients

Drain the Mexicorn and green chilies.

I sometimes have a hard time finding Mexicorn. When that happens, I simply substitute regular canned corn (the vacuumed kind works best as it has less juice).  Be sure to drain any juice in the corn, no matter which kind you use. To this I’ll also add 1/3 cup diced red pepper to the ingredients.

Grate the cheddar cheese.

When it comes to the cheese, I always suggest using block cheese and grate it yourself. I know the shredded kind is handy for last minute, but the block cheese tastes better. Trust me on this.

Using a sharp knife and cutting board, mince the onion.

I’ve used both dried onion and fresh minced onion. I like either one. However, if you use the dried onion, you will want to let it refrigerate for one hour prior to serving. (Otherwise, you may sneak the dip from the fridge sooner, because I know you’re eager to have some!)

 

Mixing the Ingredients Together

In a medium bowl, mix together the Mexicorn, green chilies, grated cheddar cheese, minced onion, mayonnaise, and sour cream until incorporated.

If desired, you may substitute cottage cheese in place of the sour cream, but real mayo works best in this recipe.

Transfer Dip to Serving Bowl

Transfer the dip to a pretty serving bowl. If desired, sprinkle the top with more cheddar cheese. Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour before serving.

Serve Corn Dip with your Favorite Corn Tortilla Chips

This recipe works great for summer picnics or barbecues. Our family loves it. It’s very addicting!

Try serving this dip with Tostitos Hint of Lime Corn Chips, On the Border Corn Tortilla Chips, or Fritos Corn Chips. I hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!
