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!
