Hot Corn Dip

I love corn.  I love warm-and-creamy comfort foods.  I love spicy.  I love dips.  And this dip deliciously combines all these wonderful loves of mine.  This recipe is from a friend of mine, who served it at her 40th birthday party.  Let me just say, it was the hit of the party! (Well, aside from the guest-of-honor herself, of course.)  And it's no wonder why.  This dip is so, so, so good.

What could be better than this being a hit-of-the-party kind of dip?  This being a hit-of-the-party kind of dip that is super easy to whip up!

You start with a Mexican blend canned corn.  I tried making it with two different varieties - 'standard' Mexicorn and Chipotle White Corn.  They were both good, but I liked the Mexicorn version better.  By just a little bit.

Mix the corn up with some cheese, mayonnaise ... ya know, the typical dip creaminess stuff ... and some chopped jalapeno, just to give it a little attitude.
Tasty creamy comfort is on it's way
Now resist the urge to eat it all up just like this.  Trust me ... getting it all hot and bubbly is worth the wait.

After it's all baked up, dig in.  I served it with pita chips, but it's also great with tortilla or corn chips.  And probably most plain-type crackers, too.  Whatever fits your fancy.

So good, you may want to consider making a double batch.  I'm just sayin' ...
