CREAMY DIP IN JUST FIVE INGREDIENTS
You guys, this hot corn dip comes together in just FIVE simple ingredients! It couldn’t be easier! Here’s all you need:
- Cream cheese: 8 ounces, or one block. Make sure it’s at room temperature for a smoother texture. Also, not is not the time to skimp on fat or calories. This dip tastes better with regular cream cheese.
- Bacon: Use about half a pound, cooked and chopped into tiny pieces. I’ve also used the pre-cooked bacon pieces (NOT bacon bits) that you can find next to the regular bacon at your grocery store.
- One can (or about 4 ounces) of diced jalapenos or green chiles.
- One can of creamed corn. For a chunkier dip, you can use a can of regular corn or frozen corn if that’s all you have on hand.
- A couple of cups of spicy pepper jack cheese. If that type of cheese is too spicy for your little ones, you can use some shredded Monterrey Jack or cheddar, or a combination.
WHAT TO DIP IN THIS CHEESY CORN DIP
This hot, bubbly corn dip with cream cheese is so yummy you can eat it with a spoon! However, when a spoon isn’t an appropriate option, pile some of these dippable ingredients on a platter and let your guests go nuts!
- Tortilla chips
- Warm flour tortillas
- Regular or whole wheat crackers
- Hot bread chunks
- Pea Pods
- Apple slices
- Pickle spears
- Cherry tomatoes
