Hot Jalapeno Corn Dip: serve this warm dip recipe for game day or movie night! Cheesy and delicious!

I’m always on the hunt for new snacks to serve at parties. Now that we are back home to Chicago, the weekends are regularly filled with visits with family and friends. And I try to never show up empty handed!

This recipe is based off one of my favorite dips: Jalapeno Corn Dip.

I’ve seen around the blogosphere (that’s the world I live in, the world of food blogs). Anyways, I’ve seen hot corn dips on many blogs this summer. And it occurred to me, why not turn my favorite cold dip into a hot dip?

Well, friends, I’ve got to say it was a great idea. A delicious idea! I’ll admit now that the photos just don’t do this dip justice! It was creamy, spicy, cheesy…everything you want a dip to be.

I’ve been struggling in this new house to find the peak time to take photos of my food. This house is much darker than my old one, and it seems morning light seems to be better than afternoon. But who wants to make dip in the morning? Actually, dip in the morning sounds great, but then I certainly wouldn’t be allowed to enjoy an ice cold Summer Shandy with it. Or at least I couldn’t instagram that, I might lose followers!

This dip is easy to mix up ahead of time. When it’s time to serve, either stick it in the oven, or microwave it until heated through and cheese has melted. ENJOY!

  1. This is going right on to my Game Day Grub Pinterest Board! Corn dip is one of my favorites and jalapeno sounds like the perfect addition! 😀

  2. This is perfect game day food! I’ve never actually tried a corn dip before but I’m digging this one.

  3. I just moved in April and it totally messed my blogging schedule up because of the different light in the new house! This dip looks fabulous, my husband would go crazy for it!

  4. I do think that looks very delicious…but not for the morning. I would stick to eating that in the afternoon with a cold one!!! Definitely game day food for sure!!!

  5. This dip looks perfect for the upcoming football season! I wouldn’t be too fond of having to make dip and take the pictures in the morning either:) I would think that dip is one of those difficult to accurately photograph foods, but your pics make me want to try this!

  6. I love the idea of taking full advantage of all the gorgeous fresh corn out there right now. This dip looks ridiculously yummy!

  7. I made a corn dip a few weeks ago and I devoured most of it, myself. Don’t leave me alone with your dip -there’d be none left for anyone else! Pinned 🙂
