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.

When a dish is really spectacular, I play the “If I had a restaurant” game. I turned to my mother-in-law, 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.

I was fortunate to taste this recipe and some others while visiting my Alaska family. This was super duper! I'm planning on taking it to Fireball Friday at the beach.

Made this for a missionary function here in Madagascar last night and it was a HUGE success. My husband loved it so much he ate it for breakfast this morning! :) I had to make a few alterations to make it work here, but, for the most part, kept it the same. I'm going to post it on our missionary recipe blog, too, since it works here.
