I bet you have a few go-to recipes for a party, right? Well I do, too. And with the Fourth of July holiday being in the middle of the week, I wanted to make sure that the recipes I fix are quick, easy and, most of all, don’t heat up my already warm kitchen.
There’s nothing better than a cold dip to cool you off on a hot fun-filled holiday…especially when it takes less than 10 minutes to put together. Now this recipe is not a Kelly original, but one I got from one of my many Junior League cookbooks. I’ve just modified it so much over the years that it isn’t quite the same.
For Fiesta Corn Dip, you will need…
3 11-oz. cans sweet corn with bell peppers
1 4-oz. can diced green chilies
1 bunch green onion, chopped
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, grated
Now like I said earlier, this recipe is super quick to put together. You can eat it right away or let it chill for a bit. It is totally up to you. It is yummy both ways; however, I prefer mine chilled, so I usually make it the night before. I also think scoop-style corn chips are a must for serving this dip.
First things, first. Open and drain the juice off the canned corn. Then pour the corn and chilies into a medium bowl.
Next, add in the chopped green onions, stirring well to make sure everything is combined.
In a separate bowl, mix together the mayonnaise and sour cream. Once it is mixed, add it to the vegetable mixture and blend.
Finally, add in the cheese, mixing in a little bit at a time to make sure that you don’t end up with big clumps. Chill and serve.
I hope you have a wonderful and safe time with your friends and family on this very special holiday. What will you be serving? I would love to know. From all of us at Texas Table Top, enjoy!
