Fresh Corn Dip

What a novel dip to serve when you're expecting company. Our Fresh Corn Dip that we suggest serving in an edible bread bowl is a super change of pace from traditional dip recipes.

What You'll Need:
  • 4 ears fresh corn on the cob, cooked (see Note)
  • 3 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 4 to 5 scallions (green onions), sliced
  • 1 (4-ounce) can diced green chilies, drained
  • 1/4 cup diced roasted red pepper
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 (1-pound) round pumpernickel bread, unsliced
What To Do:
  1. Using a sharp knife, remove corn from cob and place in a large bowl. Add cheese, scallions, green chilies, and roasted red pepper; set aside.
     
  2. In a small bowl, combine remaining ingredients except the bread; mix well. Pour over corn mixture and toss until evenly coated. Refrigerate 2 hours, or until ready to serve.
     
  3. Using a serrated knife, cut a hole in top of bread about 3 inches in diameter. Hollow out bread, leaving one inch of bread around sides. Spoon dip mixture into bread bowl. Cut bread top and hollowed out pieces into 1-inch chunks for dipping.
Notes

Here are 3 easy ways to cook corn on the cob:

  • Steam -- Bring 1 inch of water to a boil, add husked corn, return to a boil, cover, and cook 3 to 4 minutes.
     
  • Microwave -- Wrap corn in a damp paper towel and microwave 2 minutes per ear.
     
  • Grill -- Wrap each ear of corn in aluminum foil and cook on grill 15 to 20 minutes or until kernels are tender.

This is very good! Does anyone think about baking it in 350 oven in a casserole dish then putting it in bread bowl?

I used frozen corn and it seems to work well.

since ears of corn are not all the same size, how many cups of corn should be used?

2 cups should be pretty close

Your corn dip is similar to mine except I leave out the spices and add a little hot sauce and picante sauce. I serve it with tortilla chips--Texas style. Barbara Klein

I leave the husks on the corn and microwave about 3-4 min. per ear, depending on size of ears. The silks come right off after microwaving and peeling off husks. I like the corn so well, I don't even put butter on it making it healthier.

Ok I saw this on TV...I'm hungry!
