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.

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

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
