Tis the season for BBQs, cookouts and potlucks, so you will need to beef up your recipe repertoire for the occasions. You don’t want to be caught bringing the same dish every time, do you? Try Creamy Corn Dip!
Creamy Corn Dip is a hot corn dip recipe with green chile, bell pepper, cream cheese, onion and BACON! The perfect party dip!
I get asked to bring my Texas Caviar nearly every place I go. I decided I needed something similar, but different and settled on making a creamy Texas Caviar of sorts… but added BACON!
Because bacon makes everything taste better, right? Creamy Corn Dip can be made without bacon if you prefer, but needs to have the salt readjusted to account for the flavor it adds.
Really any of the ingredients can easily be omitted, doubled or swapped. Except the corn and cheese, because that would defeat the purpose of creamy corn dip. Ha!
Serve your Creamy Corn Dip with homemade tortilla chips, pretzels or even vegetable sticks.
