Tips and Tricks for Making Bacon Corn Dip

  • You can use canned whole kernel corn, canned Mexican corn, frozen corn, or grilled corn from the cob for this recipe. If using frozen corn let the corn defrost and then discard the water before adding it to the other ingredients.
  • Instead of Mozzarella and Cheddar cheese, you can also use a mixture of your favorite cheeses. I prefer using freshly grated cheese, but your favorite pre-grated cheese will work fine.
  • Use freshly grated parmesan cheese to get the most flavor!
  • Depending on how spicy you like your dip add one or two (or more) finely diced jalapenos.
  • You could eat this dip right away, but letting it sit in the fridge for a few hours makes it taste even better.
  • For the best flavor refrigerate the dip for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  • Garnish with bacon crumbles, scallions, and parsley and serve with your favorite crackers or tortilla chips.

    Thank you for the recicpe. Thawed out Frozen Corn is the best besides fresh. Just let it thaw and use for dips and salads. Canned Vegetables have an odd taste,and is mushy.

    OMG !! Absolutely delicious !! I used some fresh corn on the cob bbq’d
    So good, gave that extra smokey flavor also bbq’d the bacon. Yep!! A winner for sure Thanks

    This sounds so good, but 2 red onions sounds like an awfully lot of onion. Maybe it works!?!? When I buy red onions they are just as big as any others.
