The base of this dip is a mixture of cream cheese and sour cream. The cream cheese should be very soft so that it can be whisked together with the sour cream. You could also use a mixer if you prefer, but in this case it’s not critical that the cream cheese be completely smooth since it will melt when it goes into the oven. A mixture of corn, bacon, bell peppers, chilies, spices, cheddar cheese and cilantro get folded into the creamy base. This dip is fairly mild, but if you prefer heat, use a can of diced jalapenos instead of the green chilies. The mixture gets spooned into a baking dish, topped with more cheese, then baked until piping hot. You can store the uncooked dip in the fridge for up to 24 hours before you plan to bake it, which is super convenient for parties.

I like to garnish this Mexican corn dip with a combination of corn, diced bell peppers, crumbled bacon and chopped cilantro. It gives people a hint as to what is hiding under that layer of cheese! I often make this dip with thawed frozen corn just because it’s convenient and always available. You could also use canned corn, or if corn is in season, try fresh corn for an extra special treat.

I serve this Mexican corn dip with a big pile of tortilla chips or with Fritos. Your guests are sure to ask you for the recipe after they try this cheesy delight!
