Fiesta Corn Dip

I was introduced to this magnificent Fiesta Corn Dip at a friend’s house. A group of us who started volunteering together in 2005 sipped on glasses of wine at her house before heading out to dinner.

Kathy served this warm, spicy corn dip, which drew glowing reviews from the crowd. She generously passed on the recipe and I made it for a gathering last Sunday.

It’s pretty much a dump, stir and bake recipe, as easy as can be. Perfect for any sort of party or game day and especially for Cinco de Mayo! Cheesy Nachos are another sure-fire hit when it comes to game day!

A Guaranteed Hit!

I took this corn dip to a summer picnic. Towards the end of the evening, a gal I didn’t know was working the crowd, looking for the maker of the “corn casserole.” Apparently, the chips got moved to another table and my fiesta corn dip became a side dish.

No matter, like with my guild girlfriends, it was a recipe everybody adored and should have in their repertoire. It has a little kick, but it’s definitely not too spicy.

I’ve replaced the cans of fiesta corn called for in the original recipe with frozen corn and just added a few more minced roasted red peppers. Now you need to find an excuse to make this irresistible appetizer. I promise you will be the one getting recipe requests for this Fiesta Corn Dip!

  1. Oh wow, this dip looks amazing! I just love that cheesy crust top Liz. And it’s so easy to make. Pinning! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Lizzy, the cheese lovers won’t stop eating until all the dip is gone! I’m OK with just the tortilla chips ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Mmmm… This looks almost as good as guacamole.

  4. Liz, this looks lke a tasty dip that family and guests will really enjoy. Nice tortilla chips – I do not think that I have ever seen these dark brown ones around here – they have a great color!

  5. Sounds like football food to me! Gotta love dips:@)

  6. I’m trying this one for a party this saturday! It reminds me of a dip I made in HS with grated ‘parmesan’, mayo and onions. Thanks for sharing this recipe Liz!

  7. I can read the ingredients list, Liz, and know that I would ADORE this dip. I could eat it on a chip, I could eat it on a baked potato but, like your searching fellow party guest, I could eat it straight from my plate as a side dish. A cheesy, corn-filled delicious side dish. Pinning this one in Recipes to Try! And thanks for subbing frozen corn. I’ve never heard of fiesta corn!

  8. I’m imagining this with leftover summer sweet corn……mmmmm.

  9. Corn and green chilies in a cheesy dip…heaven on a chip!

  10. This sounds so good, Liz! I will have to go get some fresh corn, before there is no more!

  11. Oh how I love this dip! I hope I have all the stuff to make it right now because that’s going with the burgers tonight!

  12. This is going on the must make list. I love a good dip and as luck would have it I have 24 ears of corn waiting to be used.

  13. Dips like this are so nice for big parties! It looks super yummy and melty!

  14. Ooooo! This looks like a great recipe – thanks for sharing it!!!

  18. Awesome dip, perfect for parties.

  19. You always have something fun and wonderful to share Liz. I’m so glad you have such gifted culinary friends! ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. Holiday parties here I come!

  22. I love this hearty and delicious looking dip. It looks like very easy to make and it’s perfect for me. Thanks Liz and have a great rest of the week! ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. I’ve never eaten fiesta or any other corn dip. I’m dying to taste it!

  24. I love this corn dip got some kernel texture since the store brought usually already processsed and losen the texture…..
    good job!

  25. Lizzy , this dip looks sinful !

  26. A droolworthy dip, Liz. Can’t resist the cheesy treat at all.

  27. This look absolutely delicioso Lizzy!!

  28. This dips looks fantastic and I bet tastes just as delicious! It’s a bit heavy as a side dish with all that mayo, I wonder if you substituted greek yogurt for one of the cups, would it be as tasty? We’re having our friends from Illinois up to the cottage in a couple of weeks, I bet they would love this dip (may even try to make it with fresh corn!).
    We’ve been away a lot this August so my commenting has been very bad, I do appreciate your understanding; I’m hoping to get back into the swing of things in September for sure.

  29. This looks like heaven in a bowl my friend ๐Ÿ˜€

  30. Liz, I would love to have pigout on this dip. I’ve never seen a similar recipe so it’s really nice to find something new and tasty like this.

  31. Such an unusual combination but I can imagine how delicious this tastes blended and heated together. I’ll have to try this, I’m sure my family will love it.

  32. This dip sounds and looks amazing. I need to give it a try.

  33. There is just something so retro about this and I love it! Love the flavors and this is the kind of dish one makes as a dip for an appetizer and ends up eating it for the meal!

  34. Liz – do you think this recipe would work in a crockpot? Either to cook it completely, or to keep it warm after it’s baked? Or, do you think it would break and/or get really weird? I need an appetizer to take to a tailgate this weekend, but I want one that I can keep warm, so a crockpot would be best. This looks so, so great!

    • Lori, I think it might just work. You don’t necessarily need it to be browned on top…and mine may have been a bit overcooked. A crockpot would keep the dip moist. Let me know if you try it…and I can make a note of the crockpot option in my post. Thanks!

  35. I love dips like this…. sounds like perfect party fare!

  36. This dip does look good!! I don’t think I would be able to stop eating it. However, I would probably use 1/2 cup green chile and 1/4 cup roasted red. ๐Ÿ™‚

  37. Oh, boy. I want to come to your gatherings! I will be the one hiding in the corner with this bowl of dip. ๐Ÿ™‚

  38. I would love to make this yummy dip for a gathering…totally a crowd pleaser, for sure! I just admire your creations, so consistent and always promptly posted for every occasion! xo

  39. I really can’t control myself around warm, cheesy dips! Perfect for all the football parties coming up!

  40. Oh boy, I love dips and this look so good! Definitely want to give this a try for my next girls’ night! Thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚

  41. Lordy Lord! What gorgeous, homey, comfy, warm, sexy, sunshine-y dip ๐Ÿ™‚

    Loved your recipe and glamorous photos ๐Ÿ™‚

  42. I made this 2 different times for work functions and it was a big hit, The only thing I did different was instead of peppers I used a half cup of BACON , ( the already cooked in a bag kind) WOW! Delish !

  43. Made this today and wow was it good. I used less mayo and added a can of rinsed and drained black beans. Delish.

  44. I will be trying this I love everything in it and it may be my new fav!

  45. Dear Lizzy, this corn dip sounds like such a fun and delicious appetizer for summer gatherings and BBQs. xo, Catherine

  46. This looks amazing! I know it will be a hit at any Fiesta! I cannot wait to try it for Cinco de Mayo!

  47. We don’t really “do” hot dips like you do in the States. I don’t know why. This gorgeous dip looks so good, I may start drooling! Brilliant recipe and I’m going to give it a try.

  48. I’m new to corn dips but absolutely love them! I have to pass this on to my friend who would love this too!

  56. Yes this must be the perfect dip! Thanks for sharing – it’s a must try for me!

  57. This would be great over the winter – we dont usually “do” hot dips at home but this looks like a hit

  58. To me this sounds unusual and good, Liz.

  59. Oh yes, that sounds like a good one!!! Saving this recipe for sure.

  60. This looks fantastic Liz. I have a similar recipe with black beans and corn that is always wiped out when I serve it at parties. I love that this turned into a side dish when the chips were moved. So funny!

  61. What a delicious looking dip, we love a little spice with the sweetness of corn. I’d make the change too, not a big fan of canned things.

  62. Sounds great for a crowd!

  63. Cheese is my weakness! This dip looks awesome!

  64. My husband would FACE PLANT into this. NO JOKE! But of course, the chips would need to have a HINT OF LIME – ha!

  65. Can my excuse to make this be dinner??
