Hot Cheesy Corn Dip

The recipe in this post is a hot and cheesy corn dip that is great for family gatherings, parties, or the upcoming Super Bowl game.

The game is on February 4th this year.  It will be played in another cold weather state, Minnesota.  However, they do have a domed stadium.  Our Detroit Lions won’t be one of the teams since they didn’t make it to the playoffs.  The coach got fired, and the team is looking for another one.  Perhaps next year the Lions will make it.

The original name for this recipe is Baked Santa Fe Dip.  I think the Hot Cheesy Corn Dip title is more descriptive of it since you get an idea of the ingredients.  Recipe is adapted from a Better Homes and Garden recipe and can be found here.

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (8 ounces)
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack or mozzarella cheese (4 ounces)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 (15 oz) can whole kernel corn, drained
1 (4 oz) can chopped green chili peppers, drained
2 teaspoons finely chopped canned chipotle chili peppers in adobo sauce
1 teaspoon adobo sauce (from the can of chipotle peppers)
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 medium tomato, seeded and chopped (optional)
1/4 cup sliced green onion
Tortilla chips for dipping

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a 1 1/2-quart baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.

Stir together cheeses, mayonnaise, drained corn, chili peppers, chipotle pepper, adobo sauce, and garlic powder in a large mixing bowl.  Mix well and then spread mixture into the prepared baking dish.

Bake the cheese mixture in a 350 degree oven for about 25 minutes or until heated through and bubbly.  Top with the sliced green onion and, if desired, tomato.

Serve with the tortilla chips.
