Prep:
25 min
Cook:

Yield:
6 to 8 servings
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 5 ears fresh corn, shucked
  • 1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 jalapenos, seeded and diced finely
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 2 cans diced green chiles
  • 1 1/2 cups grated pepper-jack cheese
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened.
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3 green onions, sliced thin.
  • Tortilla chips or pita crisps, for serving
Directions

Heat a grill on medium heat. Grill the corn until lots of the kernels have color. Cut off the kernels and set aside.

If serving immediately, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic, jalapenos, onions and green and red bell peppers. Cook for a few minutes, until the peppers get great color on the outside. Add the chiles and stir for 30 seconds. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine 1 cup of the pepper-jack, the cream cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream and green onions and stir until combined. Add the corn mixture and stir to combine thoroughly. Pour into a small baking dish. Bake immediately, or cover with foil and refrigerate up to 48 hours.

Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup cheese over the top and bake until bubbly, 20 to 25 minutes. Serve with tortilla chips or pita crisps.

Hi Ree, I love your show.I made this last night for fight night and everyone loved it ! I was<div>asked so many times for the recipe. I told them to watch the PIONEER WOMEN LOL !</div><div>THANKS !</div> item not reviewed by moderator and published
the corn dip had very little taste. I added extra pepper jack and a little salt to the onion/pepper mixture but still not much taste. So disappointed item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yummy and decadent! Made it for super bowl and everyone enjoyed it. I used a grill pan on my stove for the corn and it worked very nice. I would like it a bit spicier so I think I will experiment with not browning the either all or some of the jalapenos. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is ridiculously good. Making it tonight for an office potluck for the 2nd time. I followed the recipe to a T (maybe added slightly more pepper jack cheese). Everyone wants the recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dip is outstanding!! Everyone at my party raved about it and couldn't stop eating it. I served it with tortilla chips &amp; pita crisps. It is a winner for sure! i will absolutely be making this again &amp; again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a big hit with my family! Have a big family get together coming up and this will be a must have! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very popular with crowd of people of all ages. Everyone wanted the recipe and you can make it the day before the event. Of favorite of our family! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good. Next time I'll add additional jarred jalapenos. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious! If I make it again, I would at least double the cheese. I used monterey jack per her suggestion on the show rather than pepper jack. I would put some of the mixture, a layer of cheese, and then more mixture, more cheese. You can easily control the spice with how much of the rind and seeds of the peno's you put in. I only used one and it was PLENTY spicy. Overall very delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Show called for an 8 oz. block of cream cheese, not 4 oz as written in the recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a hit at our friend's backyard party! It's sweet and savory. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was fantastic! I made it for my husband's birthday party. Everyone loved it! I used frozen corn because that is all that was available this time of year. I also doubled the jalapenos because my family likes spice. I can't wait to make it again when fresh corn is in season! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I noticed that on the show, Ree used 8oz of cream cheese, not 4 oz mentioned in this recipe.. Some tips to add more flavor for those few that thought it needs it. Grilling the corn heps ALOT .But as sallypet_ mentioned you can buy the corn already grilled and frozen @ trader Joes. To give it all the flavor intended really BROWN the peppers and onions, as allso mentioned on the show. I find it easier to get good color on the peppers IF I brown peppers 1st for a few minutes. That way the brown up w/o the onions letting off moisture. Then I add the onions till all have great color BUT not burned....color = flavor. If you want more zip, but do not want to add rotel tomatoes, then just add another jalapano, but keep seeds in. Personally I thought it was better with a 1/2 can of drained Rotel tomatoes w/ chilli peppers added to the stated recipe ( using 8 oz cream cheese like on the show) item not reviewed by moderator and published
The flavors of this dish were so amazing together... I made this for a family get together last night and my guests couldn't get enough of it... I would highly recommend it and will definitely make it again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
MY FAMILY LOVES THIS DIP!!! I have made it often and everyone hovers over the dish until it's gone. The flavor is amazing and it's so addictive. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Everyone loved this hot spicy dip. This will be a regular dish when I entertain because it makes a lot too. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is one very awesome recipe!! It was a hit at the New Year's Eve party!!! And I have to admit I have eaten it almost every night since New Year's Eve b/c it is awesome!!! One of the best recipes!!! Thank you Ree!!!! I am seriously NOT sick of it! Wow! Yum!!!!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Okay so after reading all the reviews I thought I would try something to see if it makes this dip a little more exciting...I followed the recipe and like others used a full 8oz of cream cheese and in place of the green chilies I used a can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce....took out most of the peppers and chopped one up and used the sauce....I'll let y'all know tonight how it turned out! item not reviewed by moderator and published
reallyy good, does need some S&amp;P for sure, a bit of cumin would top it off nicely item not reviewed by moderator and published
Really good. I used 8oz cream cheese and some cumin to give some smokiness since I didn't use grilled corn. Thawed about 2 1/2 cups and will use less corn next time. The extra cream cheese helps give it a more dip- like consistency when heated. I bet would be awesome as side dish for roasted chicken -- almost a corn pudding with only 4oz cream cheese. HMMMM . MMMM. No dip leftovers to use but next time may try as filling for take on chili rellenos. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dip is very good. I agree.....it will need S&amp;P. I tasted it before I baked and it was very bland. Other than that....great recipe!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent! I used a packet of frozen corn and fried it in the skillet after steaming it. I'll bet roasted corn will be even better. This dip is really awesome. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious just as is... my only bone to pick with people rating recipes is... you can't rate the recipe if you don't follow the recipe or make multiple substitutions..It is not fair to give a rating when you don't follow instructions... item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thank you, keeponburning. I am happy to exchange ideas with you about this recipe. First of all, this is delicious! I made only minor changes to suit my taste, but writing the whole recipe, which is 90% Ree's, obviously ruffled a feather. I didn't have Monterey Jack cheese so I used cheddar and Parmesan. Also, I left out the cream cheese and butter, for I felt sour cream and mayo were enough. One final change was that I used jarred jalape├▒os because I didn't have any fresh ones. That's it! Thank you for your input. I love Ree and her family. I watch her show twice a day! Happy cooking! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great tasting, easy to make only comment was to make it spicier next time, which , I will do . Thanks Dee item not reviewed by moderator and published
Response to KCbailey55....very rude to post your own recipe on another persons cite. Glad you like the two ladies and their recipes but this is not your site to be posting a recipe......VERY RUDE. I love Dee's recipe and have no intentions of trying your recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Please tell me how to convert into canned corn, I know it is not as healthy, but in our living conditions; it will have to do! Will one can of canned corn do? thanks!! By the way, a friend of mine brought me a bowl with this dip substituted onions for shallots. It was amazing to say the least!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I think it would be really great to add an actual can of chili and rotel. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made this for the football game last Saturday. LOVED it! I actually used the leftover corn from Thanksgiving and it worked great. Also, I used an entire 8 oz package of cream cheese (just to use up what I had in the fridge) Here's the best part though. I used the leftover dip combined with some chorizo sausage and black beans to make enchiladas. LOVED that even more! The next time I make this as a dip, I will use chorizo in the original dip. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was a huge hit with the adults and the kids during the game. Will be making again and again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My dip separated, was not creamy after removing from oven.....what did I do wrong? item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was he best!! Everyone loved this dip. I did use Rotel with green chili instead of just the can green chili. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Tasty, not really, I thought it was bland as well, and I made it exactly as instructed. Needs salt and pepper to start and maybe some Rotel tomatoes to kick it up a notch. The jalapenos did not add any heat to this. I would not make again, no one loved it. Now what to do with the really big bowl of leftovers. Most of the time I really like Ree's dishes, but not this one and I am also surprised at the good reviews. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I am surprised this received such good reviews. This was bland :( item not reviewed by moderator and published
Trisha Yearwood has a similar dip, but it is way too greasy. This one is delicious. Great for snacking while watching the Cowboys! Next time, I will kick up the spice level and leave the jalapeno seeds in. A little too bland for our tastes, hence 4 stars instead of 5. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious! I loved all of the chunks of vegetables in the dip! I used frozen corn as we'll and it was perfect. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Try the Lazy Girl's Way...use Trader Joe's Frozen Roasted Corn....thawed. All the flavor, none of the fuss item not reviewed by moderator and published
So amazing, super delicious, easy to make. my husband and grandmother loved it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was truly delicious and satisfying! I used frozen baby corn kernels instead of grilling corn. I appreciated all of the vitamins from the various vegetables and the texture they provided in the dip. A wonderful appetizer to bring for pot luck or game day at home. I used Frito and tortilla scoops to get every bite of this deliciousness. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this on Saturday for a football get together and it was a big hit. I am going to make it again this week end but with extra cheese and omit the corn. I didn't think the corn added anything to the dish. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I have a recipe simular to this one, but your recipe looks like it would be better than the one I have. However, I cannot grill and, do not have a grill, if you use frozen corn, about how much can you use? item not reviewed by moderator and published

I made this yesterday for the game, it is so easy and delicious!!! We had it for breakfast this morning too, so good hot or cold. I added a half a can of Rotel diced tomatoes with green chilis, added a little more kick. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Saw the show, going to family reunion today, need to bring appetiser. This dip looks like a match - totally portable, yummy, kicking up the flavor! (Have everything on hand - we grill corn on cob, and when we have extra cobs, cut kernals off and freeze) item not reviewed by moderator and published
Have made this several times! Unique and outstanding appetizer!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Next time I am adddin cumin. and some chilli powder. If I have any left over I may try adding 2 or 3 T. of the left overs to a home made ( NOT canned) cream corn. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yep...this made it perfect for me!!!! Thank you Ree for a Wonderful Recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love the chipolte in adobo idea. Think I will try leaving in 1 can of green chillis and use your idea of chopping 1chipolte and MOST of sauce, plus reduce the jalapenos to 1 , as I am a bit wimpy when it comes to heat. But the chipole should give a nice smokey flavor and some hea. Thanks for posting. item not reviewed by moderator and published
thanks for the tips. I am going to give your version a try! item not reviewed by moderator and published
HmmI did no think of omitting the cream cheese. But it could work. I will add this to my list of variations. I add the variations to the note section when I save a recipe item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have removed the post since you found it so RUDE. First of all, this is a Food Network site, not one person's. I meant no harm or disrespect to any celebrity chef by inserting my post. In addition, thousands of cooks post their recipes here as an exchange of ideas and thoughts. Why you chose to rake me over the coals is beyond me. Instead of women conflicting with one another over a corn dip recipe, we should be supporting one another's ideas and experiences. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Hi kcbailey55... I did not see your original post.. I agree with you, this is foodnetwork site, and the whole point of the reviews is so that people can see how well others found the recipe to work. Many people post that they did NOT like a recipe. Many people post the alterations they tried and liked. I do not see any reason why posting a similar recipe that DID resonate well with you is any different. I would WELCOME reading the recipe that you enjoyed more. item not reviewed by moderator and published
IF F.N thought it was rude, they would have removed it. F.N. welcomes opposing ideas that are constructive w/o being rude.Next time try just flagging the remark you do not like . F.N can decide. If they agree, they will send an e mail to the responder. I know b/c I made a comment once that actually was rude. I did not mean it as rude, but I was glad FN removed it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I read that one ear of corn equals about 1 cup... So for this recipe it would need about 2.5 cups. Frozen corn is a good 'healthier' option instead of canned, and its pretty cheap! :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thanks so much for the tip of using leftover dip for enchiladas!! I will definitely be trying that!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
oh wow that's an awesome idea! thanks! item not reviewed by moderator and published
NOT sure, but 1 thing MIGHT be that the onion and bell peppers you had MIGHT have had more liquid in them.Try cooking both a bit longer first.Add a pinch of salt when frying...it helps draw out moisture This does 2 things..1) browning the peppers &amp;onions reduces the moisture.2) getting a nice brown to the veggies ups the flavor. Also do not use fat free products..It is healthier, but sometimes water and sugar are often used to replace the fat. Try low fat or use a tiny bit less of regular item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just read a tip of using leftovers in your enchiladas, would work with burritos or tacos too I think... item not reviewed by moderator and published
Did you thaw the corn first? item not reviewed by moderator and published
It is a good idea to thaw and BROWN the corn...it ups the flavor.Or just thaw and blot w/ ha towel to remove excess moisture item not reviewed by moderator and published
Was wondering about thawing...thank you!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yes you thaw them..I also blot them dry so they brown better item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just have regular corn though. Should I add anything extra for more flavor? item not reviewed by moderator and published
You coul add chilli powder for some kick Or some thyme for a savory touch, Or a little Coriander will give a cilantro taste. Be careful not to burn them when grilling. Check out grilled corn recipes for more , and cookin hints. Hope this helps item not reviewed by moderator and published
Also try frying the frozen corn first ..get a good color on the corn.For this dish try adding a pinch of cumin. Then proceed as per recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thank you! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I would use about 2 cups of frozen corn. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yup. 2 cups works. One reviewer said 2 1/2 was a little too much. Blot any excess water out after thawing. I fry the corn with the onion and bell peppers whenever I use frozen for this recipe.Color = flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yup 2 C. Works . Just thaw, blot dry and fry to get the same results. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yes. Frozen corn works just as well. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I am planning on using frozen corn and will put it in a skillet to grill it a little big. Can't wait to make it item not reviewed by moderator and published
One note about Rotel tomatoes. Rotel ORIGINAL W green chillis is hot and spicy. Rotel w Lime Juice and zesty jalapenos, sounds spicy, but is milder than Original. Rotel mild is VERY mild and bland even . This just might be why some reviews thought this dish was bland item not reviewed by moderator and published
