Chips and dip are probably one of my favorite things ever! I saw this on Our Best Bites and I knew I was going to love it. Love it I did! We have made this a couple times this month. We can't seem to get enough of it. I keep telling myself it is good for me too, I mean it IS corn dip, with just a little mayo and cheese. :) I know you are all going to love it too. So next time you have a little party, or just want to sit down in front of a t.v. with a yummy snack, try this! It is spicy, creamy and divine!
Start with roasting frozen or fresh corn in a little butter for about 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper. It will turn a golden brown if using fresh corn. After 5 minutes, transfer corn to large bowl, I forgot that step my first time making it, so just disregard :)
Then add the onions and red pepper. (Or you can add the red peppers later if you are using roasted red peppers from a jar, which I highly recommend doing!) Once the onions are wilted add the garlic, jalapenos and green onions. Give them a couple a minutes.
Pour everything into a large bowl.
Add the mayo, cayenne and half of the cheeses.
Pour into a 8x8 baking dish and top with remaining cheese.
Cook for 12-15 minutes at 350 degrees. Then dig in!
