SPICY CHARRED STREET CORN DIP INGREDIENTS

Ingredient amounts and full recipe is further below where you can save it to your personal recipe box.

  1. Corn. Any variety of corn and you can use frozen or canned.
  2. Jalapeno. Remove the ribs and seeds to make it less spicy.
  3. Butter. You can use salted or unsalted.
  4. Mayo. I prefer Duke’s or Blue Plate.
  5. Cotija. This is a crumbly Mexican cheese.
  6. Cilantro. Fresh
  7. Garlic. I prefer whole garlic cloves.
  8. Lime. Every Mexican dish needs a squeeze of lime!
  9. Cream Cheese. Use full-fat cream cheese. Low fat and fat-free cream cheese won’t melt smoothly.
  10. Seasoning. Tajin, salt, and pepper. Tajin is a brand of Mexican seasoning containing a variety of peppers, lime, and citrus.
  11. Cheddar. Or any cheese you like.
