Hot or not cheesy corn dip

Cheesy corn dip

I got a great dip recipe from family that uses Ro*TEL.  Something in the Ro*TEL sets my system off so I’ve changed the recipe to use more organic ingredients.

1⅓ cups whole corn with red and green peppers, drained – Green Giant makes a 11 oz. version but the content or processing has something that upsets my system so I use the Safeway brand.  I imagine you could regular canned, fresh or frozen corn and with diced red and green peppers to get the necessary  amount.

1 cup diced tomatoes.  I buy a can of the Safeway brand peeled diced tomatoes but you could use a can of sliced tomatoes (dice them) and just use 1 cup.  Alternately, you could use the salsa of your choice.  Hmm . . . that might be better than diced toms.  I’ll have to try it.

Next is a can of diced chilies.  This is where you can choose how spicy the dip is.  If you use hot chilies, it’s gonna be spicy.  If you use mild chilies, you aren’t going to taste them.

A perfect match!

You’ll also need ½ cup mayonnaise.  I use Canola Mayonnaise (can’t do soy).

You’ll need ½ cup fresh grated Parmesan and 1 cup grated Pepper Jack.

Drain everything really well.  The better you drain everything, the better the end result.  Save the liquid from the canned veges.  You’ll find at least two other recipes on this site that use the juice. 

Mix all the veges and let them sit for a bit in a colander before moving them to a bowl to mix with the mayo and cheese for best drainage. 

Once mixed, put a small baking dish and bake for 45 minutes at 350°.

Serve the dip warm with tortilla chips.  I love the organic blue corn chips with flax seed.  Great fiber, great taste, great match!

Update – I used a can of Green Giant white corn with chipotle peppers and it’s the best batch I’ve made so far!  The processing on this Green Giant product seem to be okay.  Go figure.  The Safeway brand of corn with red and green peppers also works well.

  1. The last couple times I made this I used fire roasted diced mild chilies and I like them a lot. The brand I used was Victoria. The can size is a little bigger but the result is excellent!
