My heart is being pulled in a million edible directions right now. I’ve spent the past two days in my kitchen with apples. Apple Cider and Apple Pie are literally oozing out of my fridge and my house smells like heaven. I am itching to make a new Pasta Sauce and Lasagna recipe next week. And I can’t dismiss pumpkin and Halloween recipes this time of year. Fall is prime cooking and baking season and I caaaan’t get enough.
I made this Hot Corn Dip last weekend when we had some favorite friends over for dinner. I knew our picky boys wouldn’t touch it but that the adults would love it (umm, it is TO DIE FOR). What made me kick my sneakers off my toes was seeing our friends’ KIDS devour this dip. They couldn’t get enough! Success! This is one of the best appetizer recipes you’ll find!
HOW TO MAKE HOT CORN DIP IN A CROCK POT
This easy slow cooker dip with a Mexican flair will turn heads at any party or gathering! It is the perfect hot dip appetizer when served with chips and it also works great as a creamy side dish eaten with a fork. Either way, YUM! Great any time of year and for any type of gathering.
In a 6-quart crock pot, combine the corn, bacon, chilies, 1/2 cup sour cream, pepperjack, cheddar, the cubed cream cheese and Parmesan cheese. Stir, cover and cook on low heat for 2 hours, stirring once or twice throughout.
Cook on high heat for an additional 30 minutes and spread the mixture into a casserole dish to serve. Sprinkle with cilantro. Serve warm as a side dish or serve with tortilla chips or crackers as an appetizer!

These Grapefruit Lime Margaritas are refreshing and the perfect way to enjoy your gathering! Another great drink, easy to prepare is a Salty Dogs – Vodka and grapefruit juice come together to make a great team! This alcoholic drink is irresistible and a great sipper for sitting on the deck.
Add a can of diced tomatoes for some tomato flair!
Add to serving dish and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and/or sliced green onions!
HOW LONG WILL HOT CORN DIP LAST
Once you have served your corn dip, place any remainders in an air-tight container and place it in the fridge for 3-4 days. Because this dip has dairy in it, it is not recommended for freezing.
EASY VARIATIONS TO THIS DISH
Using the blended white and golden corn offers a delicious sweetness mixed in with the spicy heat.
Add diced bell peppers or chopped spinach.
Sprinkle sliced green onions on the top before serving.
For extra heat, add a 1/2 teaspoon chili powder at a time or 1 freshly diced jalapeno.
Monterey Jack Cheese and cheddar cheese are just as delicious options in this recipe if you don’t have Pepper Jack cheese on hand.
Remember! Fresh grated cheese is better for melting into the dip than the pre-shredded. So if you can, shred it yourself!
Instead of using frozen corn from the freezer section, try grilling your fresh corn on the cob like we do in this Grilled Corn on the Cob with Spicy Cilantro Lime Butter and then cut if off the cob for a delicious addition to your hot corn dip.
