Out-of-this-World Corn Dip:

Greetings all! I hope you had a fab Fourth of July. I know I did.

Though, I must admit having a holiday mid-week always screws me up. Not only do I have no idea what day it is, my productivity schedule is completely out of whack. Anyone else?

Yesterday I whipped up an impromptu dip for a little swimming nosh at my Dad’s house. I hadn’t made this dip in over five years and honestly forgot how delicious it really is. And, you know me, it’s super simple to put together an it makes a ginormous amount of dip.

I actually found this recipe via a Gooseberry Patch cookbook my mom gave me years ago when I first moved to Philadelphia after college.

However, after a quick google search found it all over the net. Some even call it Crack Corn Dip! (That’s what my family calls it now because they love it so much!) But, for the purpose of this post, I give all the credit to Gooseberry Patch’s Coming Home with Gooseberry Patch.

Recipe Notes:

I couldn’t find the corn with diced peppers, so I just used plain sweet corn and added in 1/4 cup of chopped roasted red peppers. Fabulous!

Also, take the time to make sure everything is drained really, really well. This dip can get runny if you don’t. Also the longer it sets, the more the cheese soaks up any liquids.

It’s has a small kick (use less jalapeños if you don’t want it as spicy), but I love that. So fab!

    Kick it up a notch and add lots of Tajin! Makes it just that much better than it already is! Also, the Tillamook Farm shredded sharp cheddar or shredding your own sharp cheddar for bigger cheese chunks really puts this over the top!

      Thanks! I love the recipe as is, but feel free to make it your own. Enjoy!!

    Can’t find the recipe for pretzels you break in pieces, put butter/sauce over & bake?

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      My blog has a great search feature. Just search “pretzels” and it should come up. You can also Google “inspired by charm pretzels” and it should come up there as well.

      Very boring dip. Lacks flavour. Not worth making in my opinion. I trying to figure out what to add to salvage it.

      • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

        Are you sure you added everything? This dip is anything but boring.
