Yummmm. I am always looking for different dips to make for get togethers. My go to favorite is my own tried and true Crack Dip that has feta, sundried tomatoes, artichokes, olives, and dill. It is magical and I am sure you are tired of hearing me rave about how awesome it is. My other favorite–that is now a favorite post on the blog–is The Jalapeno Popper Dip. I wanted to expand the list of easy-but-crowd-pleaser dips and came upon this Inspired By Charm Corn Dip on Pinterest. Winner!
It’s creamy, cheesy, crunchy, and flavor-packed! I love that it is versatile with spices, add-ins, and more. My favorite part of the whole dish was the corn because of the subtle hint of sweetness it added. Also, we all determined that the dip got better with age as the spices all married together. We served it cold, but the resounding consensus was that it would be great hot too.
Overall, this is definitely a dip that will be making many an appearance at many BBQs, sports get togethers, and more. Super tasty.
