You are in for a TREAT today! This Out-of-this-World Corn Dip (or as my family likes to call it ‘Crack Corn Dip’) is about to become your new favorite appetizer.

I have tested several corn dip recipes and this one always comes out as the winner!

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.

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

  1. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe, Michael…it’s definitely one of our favorites. No matter what you call it, it’s always a party favorite and even though it makes enough to serve a crowd, we always seem to take home an empty bowl! 🙂

    Thanks again for sharing and linking…we appreciate it!

  2. This dip is much better served warm when the cheese is melted! I use a small crock pot and set it to high to melt everything, then once melted keep it on warm.

  3. I not only think this dish looks yummy it is. I took it to a Church social and everyone asked for the recipe. Your not kidding it is ediable gold. Couldn’t quit eating it. Very easy to make. The only thing I would do differently is use a corn chip that was less salty.

  4. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! I’ve been looking for this recipe….I had something just like this several years ago (without the jalapeño papers) and have been searching for the recipe! They lady that brought it to my sons end of season soccer party called it a dump dip…and rattled off what was in it, but i couldn’t ever remember. I’m so excited!
