This is the ideal dip to serve at your Cinco de Mayo, Fiesta, or football watching party. It’s full of flavor from green chilis, pimentos, green onions, paprika, and cumin. To bind it slightly and add additional flavor, I used just a touch of mayonnaise and sour cream.

I used frozen corn in my dip. Personally, I prefer frozen over canned corn, but you can use canned. Substitute fresh corn if it’s available to you. You will need to cook fresh corn, boil or roasted fresh corn is wonderful in this dip.
When using canned corn, you’ll need to drain it before mixing it with the other ingredients. As well, drain the pimentos.
If you don’t like cilantro, omit it from the recipe. If you like it a lot, add as much as you want.
I sprinkled crumbled Cotija cheese over the top. Cotija is a crumbly Mexican cheese. You can omit or use Feta or goat cheese.
