Southwest Summertime Creamy Corn Dip

Super simple, quick and easy Southwest Summertime Creamy Corn Dip, is a dish you can easily take for a potluck, picnic or impromptu gathering of friends and family.

One of my favorite things to do with this dish, is to make a batch for myself, grab a bowl of scoop chips and dive right in.  The Southwest Summertime Creamy Corn Dip is made up of light bright colors very pleasing to look and and spicy, rich  full flavors, very good on the taste buds.

The base of this dip is fresh corn, red peppers, green peppers, green onions, and green chilis.

The first step is to simply chop up the peppers and onions, mix into the corn , add the can of rotele, add a splash of lime juice and a dash of salt, set aside.

While the corn blends in with the peppers and onions, this gives you time to prepare the Mexican mayonnaise, sour cream, cheese, green chilis and chopped cilantro.

When I say prepare, I really mean open the jars, cans and containers, this recipe is really that easy.

The beauty of the recipe is, if you find yourself running late to your event, you can literally make this, while you run back and forth to the bedroom getting dressed at the same time.   A can of corn here, a pair of jeans there ! lol

The final step is to mix the cheese, Mexican mayo (or regular if that is not available), sour cream, and green chilis into the corn mixture.

To top it off add the a generous amount of cilantro on top of the mixture because as you dig in you’ll get a good bit of cilantro and dip all in one bite.

The very best chips to use for this epic adventure in flavor are Frito Scoops, if your super talented you can double scoop, one chip in each hand!

If you like living on the edge add some pickled jalapenos on top, so you get a good taste of flavor and heat in those scoops.

Go for it! Dig in.

My passion for life is baking and creating in the kitchen.
From canning fresh produce and fruit each summer and fall with my grown children to
Flipping thru magazines and trying those impossible dishes.
However I always know that I can rely on the old family tried and true recipes.

I have written many cookbooks over the years, you can order them directly at, The cookbooks have reminded me that I always go back to finding my true self in the kitchen, when I am covered in flour, lost in baking or making the biggest mess ever in the kitchen.
Sometimes my kitchen looks like a tornado hit it! And I have a really small space lol.

Now that the kitchen and i have finally found our groove we are able to further the journey with sharing my recipes, thoughts, and kitchen wisdom with the world!
Gone are the days of rushing into the house after a long day at work, and trying to beat Betty Crocker at her own game , tirelessly trying to whip up a nutritious and delicious meal for the family, making it look effortless and taste good too!
Many a night was spent in my work coat cooking dinner, as I had not taken the time to take it off.
Straight to the kitchen , a glass of wine and my favorite casserole dish I went.
This is partly the product of being brought up on a salad, main entrée, with a ton of side dishes, and of course a home baked dessert!

However it was survival of the fittest for my kids as they grew up.
You had one chance to eat dinner, and if you chose to sit there and pout over the broccoli on your plate, many nights when dinner was over, you went hungry.
Ahhh those were the days, the days when parenting was free spirited and fun!

I hope you enjoy what I share with you, and if you ever find yourself looking for a little bit of those tried and true recipes feel free to check out my cookbook, there's something in them for everyone!
