Warm corn dip

Mmm, I am still trying to eat a lot of veggies while they are fresh and available. Including corn! Corn dip sounds kind of weird, but this was really delicious.

I didn’t have tortilla chips at the time I baked this, so I used veggies for my dippers and it worked just great!

Fresh corn is so much better than canned or frozen!

Warm corn dip based on this Emeril recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 ears fresh corn – removed from cob
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pepper (green, yellow or red)
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions (green and white parts)
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and minced
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 8 oz. shredded cheese – I used Colby Jack
  • 3-4 basil leaves – sliced (aka chiffonade)
  • Tortilla chips or fresh veggies, for dipping

Directions

· Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

· Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add the corn, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the kernels turn deep golden brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in basil at the end of cooking time. Transfer to a bowl. Melt the remaining tablespoon of butter in the skillet. Add the onions and bell peppers and cook, stirring often, until the onions are wilted, about 2 minutes. Add the green onions, jalapeno, and garlic and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes, or until the vegetables are softened. Transfer to the bowl with the corn. Add the mayonnaise, 1/2 of the cheese and mix well. Pour into an 8-inch square baking dish and sprinkle the remaining cheese on top. Bake until bubbly and golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Serve hot with the chips.

I try to chop off the end of the corn cob so it is flat and just slice it into the bowl.

I don’t know who did it, but someone brought this fresh basil to work for giveaway. The leaves were huge and so, so delicious!
