Corn is one of the best things about the summer. When you get it fresh from the farm, the corn is so juicy and sweet that nothing compares. 

It is the vegetable of summer. And  makes the perfect base for this slightly spicy but also refreshing dip. 

Just like my fresh mango avocado salsa, pineapple salsa, and fruit salsa with cinnamon chips all you have to do is throw all of the ingredients together and stir. Then you have the perfect summer dip to serve with some salty tortilla chips or veggies.

If you love summer corn make sure to try our hot cheesy corn dip too! The melted cheese and roasted corn flavor is amazing!

Ingredients You’ll Need

Here’s what you’ll need for the recipe:

  • Corn – Fresh, summer corn tastes best, but you could use canned or frozen if you prefer.
  • Dip base– To make the base of the dip, you’ll need both sour cream and mayonnaise. We use the full fat version of each for best consistency and flavor.
  • Sharp cheddar cheese – We prefer sharp or extra sharp, but you could use mild or medium. Also, freshly grated tastes best, but you can use the bagged stuff.
  • Peppers You’ll need jalapeños with the seeds removed, green chilies, and a red pepper.
  • Fresh cilantro – You can add as much as you like or skip if you prefer.
  • Seasonings – You’ll need both garlic salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Fresh or Frozen Corn?

If you have the choice, we would definitely go fresh summer corn! It is often sweeter and fresher with a better flavor than any frozen corn. 

But if it is not in season and you really want a good dip, you can use canned or frozen. If you use canned, make sure to fully drain it first. When using frozen, allow it to thaw in the fridge completely. If needed, you can use a paper towel to remove excess moisture.

How to Make it Ahead of Time 

Yes! You can make this dip up to 2 days in advance. To store, tightly seal them and place them in the refrigerator. Leftovers can last in the fridge for up to 5 days. 

What to Serve It With

This spicy, cool dip goes great with your favorite dippables! Here are some of our suggestions:

  • corn chips
  • pita chips
  • toasted bread slices
  • dippable vegetables like cucumbers, mushrooms, carrots, or bell peppers
  • bagel chips
  • tortilla chips
