If you’re looking for a mega-rich loose cheesy corn dip this isn’t it. Although that does sound delicious it isn’t what I was going for. Although this is kind of rich and cheesy, it isn’t like most corn dips. I wanted to serve this as a side for a roast chicken so I didn’t want it to be repugnant. Not claiming it’s healthy but I did go easy on the mayo and softened cream cheese.
I love making this year round but I always make it for Thanksgiving. Strange, I know. My family loves it. It’s spicy and just all around perfect.
