A Winning Corn Dip Recipe

I made this sour cream corn dip recipe for the umpteenth time for our annual 4th of July gathering; and once again, I went through the list of ingredients when a few folks were hovering over the bowl, scooping up bite after bite with their chips, wondering how to make this dip. Bill, who has been trying to  keep his new, slim, trimmer profile, just couldn’t keep away.

I had bought a large bag of  tortilla scoops, and even before the party started, he questioned whether we had enough. Thank goodness there were a few leftovers he can nosh on over the next few days. I kept the dip on ice for the duration of our cookout so it would be safe to eat without worry of food-borne bacteria that can plague summer picnic fare.

Tips for Making Sour Cream Corn Dip

A sour cream and mayo base was spiced up with green onions, green chilies, diced jalapeño, cayenne, and cumin. Defrosted frozen corn, diced red bell pepper and shredded sharp cheddar cheese were mixed in, and it was ready to be scooped up with corn tortilla chips.

  • You can easily up the spice factor to your liking. Add more or less jalapeno peppers depending on whether you want your sour cream corn dip super spicy or mild. The same goes with the cayenne pepper.
  • Try some blanched fresh sweet corn cut off the cob for the ultimate summer experience! I’m sure you could lighten this up with reduced fat sour cream, mayonnaise and cheese, but I haven’t done this.
  • If you are serving this at a summer gathering, make sure it doesn’t sit out longer than 2 hours unless you have it on ice. This will prevent food poisoning.
  • We like serving this corn dip recipe with Tostitos scoops, so you get a good dip to chip ratio. Any corn or tortilla chip will work.
