Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 2 cups corn kernels fresh or frozen
  • 2 cups onions finely chopped
  • 2 cups red bell pepper finely chopped
  • 1 jalapeno seeded and minced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 cups shredded jack cheese
  • salt and pepper
  • cayenne optional
  • 2 - 3 green onions for garnish

Instructions

  • Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Spray a medium sized baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a large skillet over medium high heat melt 1 Tbsp. of the butter. Add the corn and cook, stirring occasionally until the corn is cooked and the kernels turn a nice golden brown color - about 5 - 7 minutes. The corn will make crackling noises as it cooks so don't worry!
  • Pour the corn into a large bowl and set aside.
  • Melt the remaining 1 Tbsp. butter in the pan and add the onions and bell pepper. Cook until the onions are just beginning to soften, about 3 - 4 minutes. Add the jalapeno and garlic and cook for another 2 minutes. Pour the vegetables into the bowl with the corn and let cool.
  • Add the mayonnaise to the mixture in the bowl. Season with salt and pepper and cayenne is using. Stir 1 ½ cups of the cheese into the mxiture and pour into the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with the remaining cup of cheese and bake until bubbly and golden brown - about 10 - 12 minutes.
  • Serve with crackers, tortilla chips or veggies!

Notes

I served this with multi grain crackers and with red pepper sticks. The dip is also good with roasted green chiles - 1 7 oz. can is perfect in this recipe! For added heat, a diced chipotle chile is great instead of the jalapeno. This dip can be assembled and refrigerated 1 day ahead. If making ahead, let dip come to room temperature before baking!
