I made this according to the recipe, in spite of the facts that I'm not a mint fan and the "Boss" (read "wife") is not a big fan of lime juice. But we both liked this. We're what I call "heater eaters" so I was more than liberal with the peppers. A big THANK YOU, moosie, for a solid repeater recipe.-24 May 2010

by Chocaholic

I was pleasntly surprised with this recipe. The mint and the basil really go well together and it's a good way to use up a bunch of stuff from the garden. It has a very unusual flavor that your guests will love and remember.-01 Sep 2010

Made this for a summer beach party of about 50 people. I brought it with tortillas cut up, brushed with olive oil, sprinkled with kosher salt and broiled. Of all the appetizers that were brought, this was the favorite!-06 Aug 2014

This is very good! Does anyone think about baking it in 350 oven in a casserole dish then putting it in bread bowl?

Deborahmahan that's a interesting tip! I think baking it would give it a nice texture and deepen the taste, but would it stay soft enough to be a dip if it were baked?

I just saw that the spinach artichoke dip here is baked! So I say, Yes! Bake this dip, too! http//www.mrfood.com/Snacks/Baked-Spinach-and-Arti == choke-Dip-5372articleCommentRatingDiv

I used frozen corn and it seems to work well.

since ears of corn are not all the same size, how many cups of corn should be used?

2 cups should be pretty close

Your corn dip is similar to mine except I leave out the spices and add a little hot sauce and picante sauce. I serve it with tortilla chips--Texas style. Barbara Klein

I leave the husks on the corn and microwave about 3-4 min. per ear, depending on size of ears. The silks come right off after microwaving and peeling off husks. I like the corn so well, I don't even put butter on it making it healthier.

Ok I saw this on TV. I'm hungry!

  1. Heat the oven to 325°. Heat a grill pan over high and cook the corn until charred on all sides, 25 minutes. Cut the kernels from the cob, and purée two-thirds of the kernels in a food processor with the cream, ricotta, flour, and thyme. Season with salt and pepper and stir in remaining kernels.
  2. Scrape the dip into an 8-inch baking dish, sprinkle with parmesan, and dot with butter bake until bubbly, about 1 1 ⁄2 hours. Garnish with chives and scallions to serve.

So good! We used fresh, not canned, because we already had those fresh ingredients plus fresh garlic, not powdered. The sour cream brings all the ingredients together in the most delicious way and there was not a scrap of dip left so it seems that our guests really enjoyed it!

Great addition to the mayonnaise this is a really simple and Delicious recipe!

Yesterday I whipped up an impromptu dip for a little swimming nosh at my Dad&rsquos house. I hadn&rsquot made this dip in over five years and honestly forgot how delicious it really is. And, you know me, it&rsquos super simple to put together an it makes a ginormous amount of dip.

I actually found this recipe via a Gooseberry Patch cookbook my mom gave me years ago when I first moved to Philadelphia after college.

However, after a quick google search found it all over the net. Some even call it Crack Corn Dip! But, for the purpose of this post, I give all the credit to Gooseberry Patch&rsquos Coming Home with Gooseberry Patch.


Mexican street corn dip

You know those recipes you just become obsessed with and can’t get enough of? That’s how I’ve become with this Mexican street corn dip. We have had it weekly for the last 2 months (and most of the time more often than that) because it is honestly just so good! It’s all the deliciousness of Mexican Street corn (or Elotes) but in a handy-dandy dip form.

It’s the kind of recipe I make in bulk and just keep in the fridge to snack on (read: eat out of the bowl with a spoon) and is the best casual appetizer when you’re having people over. I also made it for my birthday dinner as a topping for chicken tacos. It’s versatile and delicious and you need to get on this ASAP.

How to make Mexican street corn dip

I like to toast the corn in a hot frying pan before adding it to the dip because it adds so much roasty, toasty flavour. Traditionally you would use Cotija cheese in a Mexican recipe but unfortunately it’s not that easy to find here so I substituted crumbled feta cheese. The saltiness of the cheese with the sweet, roasted corn is just delectable. Add fresh chillies, coriander (cilantro), sour cream and mayo, and you have the kind of dip people will fight over.

I love serving this corn dip with home-made tortilla chips (just fry triangles of flour tortillas in hot oil until golden brown on both sides) but be warned: this is addictive stuff!
