Yesterday I whipped up an impromptu dip recipe for a little swimming nosh at my Dad’s house. It is one of my favorite appetizer recipes! 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.

If you like corn dips you also need to try this jalapeño corn dip and loaded veggie ranch corn dip.

I actually found this particular 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 corn dip can get runny if you don’t. Also the longer it sets, the more the cheese soaks up any liquids.

  1. 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!

  2. As always Michael, thank you! Your recipes have never disappointed! I can’t wait to try this one. And yes…it will take me a month to get back on track and figure out what day it really is! LOL!

  3. 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!

  4. Found you through pinterest… I love that you love Sarah Richardson. I love her too. I’m following your Sarah Board now. This dip looks delish. I have company company coming tomorrow evening so I’m making this if I can find the ingredients. We travel through your beautiful state when we head south snowbirding in the winter. Love it!

  5. 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!
