Corn and Green Chile Dip – the sweet, salty and spicy flavors of Mexican street corn come together in this delicious dip. Perfect for your next party, game day or snack anytime.
Corn on the cob is a favorite at my house. I’ve mentioned that whenever I make it, I like to prepare a few extra ears of corn so that I have leftovers to be used in salads, such as my Tomato Corn and Black Bean Salad. Or, in other dishes such as this Corn and Green Chile Dip.
The Flavors of Mexican Street Corn in a Dip
This past weekend I had three ears of leftover corn to use up. I also had some fresh green chilies that my neighbors’ had given me from their garden. So, I decided to make a dip incorporating the flavors of Mexican street corn.
Mexican street corn is grilled corn on the cob that has been slathered in mayonnaise and rolled in cotija cheese and topped with a squeeze of lime juice and a sprinkle of chili powder. I thought these flavors would go nicely in a dip and that certainly is the case.
How to Make Corn and Green Chile Dip
I charred the corn and green chili (the chili can also be roasted, and skin removed, prior to charring). Then, I tossed them along with some green onions in a creamy mayo based dressing with garlic, lime juice and fresh cilantro. Finally, I folded in some crumbled feta cheese (a substitute for the cotija). The resulting Corn and Green Chile Dip is so delicious and full of sweet, salty and spicy flavors.
Both my in-laws and my parents were visiting us for the Labor Day holiday weekend. I served this dip, along with some tortilla chips, as a Sunday afternoon snack. It was a big hit and gone in no time.
This delicious Corn and Green Chile Dip along with some tortilla chips is a great addition to a party, game day or snacktime anytime. This flavorful dip is also wonderful as a side dish for a barbeque or taco night.
