Corn Dip






This dip is a favorite at family functions. After I started bringing it to my husbands family functions, it has also become a favorite there! Needless to say, it's a foolproof recipe and you most likely won't have any left over.

Ingredients

·      1 can yellow and white corn, drained
·      2 11oz cans mexicorn, drained
·      2 cups shredded cheese- your preference
·      1 cup mayonaisse
·      1 cup sour cream
·      green onions, chopped (I do a whole bundle)


Directions
Mix everything in a big bowl and serve with tortilla chips!

Do you have a favorite dish you bring to family get- together's?

Peace & Sunshine,

Recipe from: My mom :)

  2. We make almost exactly this recipe ALL the time! It's our most-requested dip by far. We use a can of chopped green chilis instead of the green onions. I like the flavor the chilis bring to the party. We'll have to try adding fresh green onions!

    1. That's a really great idea! It kinda makes it more like a meal if you add chicken!

    2. I'm making this as a meal for tomorrow's dinner, Ashleigh Jeanné did you bake it or just add the chicken after? Great idea and thanks for sharing

    3. Coming from a vegetarian, chicken does not make something a meal. It bothers me when people think that meat makes a meal.

      But anyway, I pinned this to my recipe board on Pinterest and hope to try it sometime. It looks good!

    4. I think she just meant the extra added protein helped make it more hearty and could be classified as more of a meal than an appetizer. For those of us who are not vegetarians/vegans, meat is usually the way we get our added protein, so please don't take offense when someone thinks adding meat to a recipe makes it more of a meal. For us, it does.

      On another note, thank you for the recipe, Sammi - this has become a favorite with my family!

    5. Seriously Eloise Thibault..........I am a vegetarian as well and your comment was ignorant and unnecessary.

    2. When I first made this, I got it mixed up with another recipe that needed to be baked and baked it for 20 minutes at 350 - I haven't made it without baking, but it was darn good when it was baked! Everyone wanted to know my recipe (:

  5. i just made this today and substituted the sour cream and mayo for 2 cups of greek yogurt (we dont really like mayo) and it was so delicious! my dad kept ranting and raving about it. its definitely a recipe i will be making again!

    1. That is so great! Greek yogurt is way healthier than mayo also!

      Delete
    2. We substitute Greek yogurt for mayo a lot as my youngest is allergic to eggs. I had this dip many years ago and have been looking for a similar recipe. We are going to a party this weekend and this will be the perfect dip - thanks for blogging!

  6. I made this with Greek yogurt and the green chilis. It was just ok. Kind of bland. Won't make it that way again.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I use the chilis in adobo and bake it at 400 for 20 minutes. Stir it up and toss the green onions on top! So good.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Really good if you add hot sauce and cook for 30 mins at 350

    ReplyDelete
  9. Add a bit of cilantro and it makes it pop! Definitely delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I added 8oz of cream cheese and baked for about 20 to 30 mins.

    and.........OMG!!!!!!!!!!

    1. sounds delish with these additions!!

  13. This is very similar to an authentic Mexican dish my family makes called Esquite/Elotes, only we sprinkle some Cotija cheese evenly over the top of the corn along with a little sprinkle of cayenne pepper for some extra spice. We def wouldn't put any green onions,just seem weird in this dish, so I would add a little jalapeno in there. The mayo and cream and cheese evens out the spiciness.

    1. Mexicorn is in a can by the canned corn. Just pour the juice out before you add it to the bowl.

      Delete
    2. It's just canned corn with red and green pepper in it. You can substitute regular canned corn, and add some finely chopped red and green pepper - same thing.

    3. Here is a simple recipe for what we call Mexicorn

  22. I have made another version of this....HOT CORN DIP! Yummy! It's pretty much the same but add roasted red bell peppers. you start off by sauté-ing garlic and chopped yellow onion in skillet with butter, add mexicorn, till roasted a bit. Add red bell pepper, and any other veggies. Then mix the sour cream, cheese and mayo together. Mix everything together and bake around 350-375 for about 15 mins. YUMMY!

  24. I too make a similar recipe, although I add fresh green/red peppers, red onion, cheese, chillies, and the sour cream/ mayo. Although before serving I add a bag of crushed chilli cheese fritos. It is amazing!!

  31. This is tasty! I made this for a potluck and got tons of compliments. I made it Mexican Street Corn style by adding some chili powder and parmesan cheese to it also.

  32. I made this tonight and I love it! I used Tostitos Hint of Lime chips and it was on point. I'll definitely be making this again. Thank you!

  33. gonna try this tonight,hubby loves these stuff thanks fir sharing :)

  34. This looks like an amazing recipe. I think with all the comments that there are some great ideas for alternate recipes to fit any picnic from a crab feast to hamburgers and hot dogs. I think that you if you roasted the mexicorn a little bit, that it will add another layer of flavor. I will also add the juice of one key lime. A great substitute for those who don't care for cilantro.

    For a touch of creaminess, maybe avocado. I am excited about the options.

  35. I am making this for a party where there will be 60-80 people and am wondering if one batch will be enough or if I should do two

  36. I have been waiting to try this recipe for a long time. However, we don't have Mexicorn in my part of the world (Eastern Canada) so I improvised with this recipe below. It turned amazing! everyone loved it! So, if you need a mexicorn alternative definitely try this out. Thanks for the awesome recipe :)

    *Also, I couldn't find banana peppers at my local store so I bought a jar Bicks Banana Pepper rings and eyed/tasted to find the correct ratio..

  37. I don't care for mayo... at all! Do you know of a substitution that won't too much alter the consistency? I love corn dips and this sounds so good except the mayo part... What do you think?
