Spicy Corn Dip.
This might be the most addicting dip I’ve ever put into my mouth. I kid you not. It’s warm, creamy, cheesy and definitely corny. I happened to have been watching Food Network one afternoon. Which is a rarity for me, I know you might think I would watch it all the time, but nope.
I’m more of a discovery channel or history channel nerd and okay okay I’m totally into the Hallmark channel this time of year. Guilty. As luck would have it, they were showcasing a restaurant that was serving up a corn dip.
Color me curious. Why? They were putting sweetened condensed milk in there. It sounded wacky but honestly I’m willing to try ALMOST all types of food combinations at least once. I’m really happy I did.
I didn’t catch all the measurements but I got the gist of the dip and after a few tries came up with something that I could eat just about every day of the year and be a happy camper.
The jalapenos balance out the sweetness of the condensed milk. You can add more if you like to cry when you eat food. I’m just a fan of heat, not crying. I used canned corn for this recipe but I think fresh would be amazing. Perhaps even roasting it first, more amazing.
I’ll have to try that next summer when sweet corn is in season. Not that I’ll mind remaking this because anything for research purposes. Comparison. All for y’all.
