There’s a thing about corn dip, like every other dip, it’s addicting. This recipe is so easy to do that most of the ingredients can be found in your kitchen. Another good thing, you can do it from fresh corn and chili, no can needs here.
The recipe calls for bell peppers, jalapeno, and other kinds of chili, but you can also substitute for then on spicy ones. Sour cream can also be replaced with Greek yogurt while Mayo can be replaced with a dairy-free option.
Saucing onion and pepper beforehand will also bring out the sweetness in them, otherwise, you could just quick steam them for 5 minutes or so. If you like more intense flavor, adding some raw chunks of white onion to the dip would heat it up a bit.
Finally, the dip tastes much better chill, so plan ahead and keep it in the fridge until right before serving. You can also mix it up the day before and chill overnight. The dip will be thicker and all flavors are soaking in giving the whole thing just go up another knot.
