Weather: wind and rain all day long
What I’m listening to: Turning Page (Instrumental), Sleeping At Last

This recipe is wow… just wow. I had seen a lot of different hot corn dip recipes floating around the food blogosphere and I wondered what all the fuss was about. I picked one, tried it, and now I absolutely get it.

Hot Corn Dip via Alaska from Scratch

When a dish is really spectacular, I play the “If I had a restaurant” game. I turned to my houseguest, mid-bite, and declared that if I had a restaurant I would serve this as an appetizer. And she agreed. Plus, it’s made with ingredients I almost always have on hand this time of year – sweet corn, smoky chipotles, gooey cheese, fresh cilantro, bright tomatoes… and a few other goodies that make this one irresistible dish of spicy, melty deliciousness. You want this in your belly. Trust me.
