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 recipe 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.

How to make Crack Corn Dip:

This Corn Dip Recipe is so easy to make:

  • Stir to evenly combine
  • Refrigerate until your ready to serve.

That’s it!

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!

    Thanks! I saw this yesterday and decided to make it today for a party. It is awesome. I only had a small can of chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, so I chopped a few of those real small, removed the seeds and added a few tablespoons of the adobo sauce. I’ve never had corn dip, so thank you!

    It’s fun to discover dips that aren’t the ‘run of the mill!’ Thanks for sharing it!
    I noticed several people mentioned that they found you on Pinterest…and I did as well. You’ve a trove of great pins.
    Funny how you, too have a really mixed up week when the holiday is in the middle. I actually missed having our usual Thursday night pizza at a local cafe where they make fresh grilled pizza on the patio. I even had a guest staying with us with whom I raved about the pizza. We missed taking her as I thought it was Saturday not Thursday, yesterday! Phooey. Today seemed like Monday. Arrgh!
    Sounds like your 4th was Extraordinary!

    Hi Michael! We love a very similar version in our home that uses the Mexi-corn. We call it “corn dip crack” if that’s any indication on how addicted we are to it. 😉 Love the version you shared as well, will have to give it a try!

    Fresh Sweet Corn is 6 for a dollar here in Seattle. I wonder if it would work well? I made a fresh corn and avocado salsa for the fourth.
