Hot Corn Dip

The Holiday Season is in full swing … parties, family gatherings, baking, shopping, etc.  This past weekend, the hubby and I got together for our annual Christmas dinner with friends … the same friends that we go camping with every summer.  This is what our annual get together consists of … eat at our favorite barbecue restaurant, Lucille’s … sometimes exchange small gifts and then we all go shopping at Bass Pro Shop.  Yep, just the way we like it … simple, fun, good food and friends!  Since it is the time for parties and gatherings … got a great warm, cheesy. a little spicy dip for you to make and share, Hot Corn Dip!

I’ve made this dip at home and while camping … a cast iron skillet is perfect for baking and serving .. stays warm for some time!  To make sure that nobody grabbed the hot handle, I wrapped it with a cloth napkin and tied it.  This warm and yummy dip can also be made in a 9″ x 13″ pan or casserole dish.

Hot Corn Dip is warm out of the oven and in flavor too!  Habanero Jack or Pepper Jack cheese and green chiles give a little kick to the dip, but not too much.  Trust me, Son #3 and I like a little heat, but don’t go for “my mouth is on fire” heat!

There’s nothing not love about this ooey gooey cheesy dip … friends and family will love it too!  Heck, they’ll love you for sharing it with them 😉

Thank you to Gwen and Donna for coming up the celery idea … tastes great and scoops so well!  It’s nice to have an alternative to have with the chips and dip.

My family’s opinions (they always have one)

Son #3 loves it with chips (doesn’t like celery, ever), wants to have it as lunch, because it’s vegetables and protein!  I’m not sure if that counts!

Son #2 just ate it with a fork … guess he liked it!

The hubby and I like it with both chips and celery!

I always look forward to your comments!
