Jalapeno and Corn Dip

Quick and easy way to make a delicious dip. It’s easy to add ingredients to make tasty variations on this dip. I included a squeeze of lime to give it a bit of a bite. I also added way more jalapenos because I keep it spicy. You can add cayenne, mayo, Monterrey cheese, etc. This recipe is versatile and it will always be a big hit.

Ingredients

  • 4 slices bacon, diced
  • 3 (15.25-ounces) cans whole kernel corn, drained
  • 2 jalapenos, seeded and diced or 2 tablespoons of picked jalapenos
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup shredded Pepper Jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup Mexican Cheese blend
  • salt, black pepper, cumin, season to taste
  • 1/4 cup of fresh chopped cilantro
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives

Directions

1. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add bacon and cook until brown and crispy, about 6-8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate; set aside.

2. Place corn, jalapenos, sour cream, Pepper Jack cheese and Mexican cheese blend  into a 4 qt pot; season with salt, pepper and cumin, to taste. Add cilantro, stir until well combined. Top with cream cheese.

        Ten items so far, but the way you cook I am sure it will continue to grow.

          Seems on the short end and sounds like you will be spending at least 2 weeks here.
