{Cilantro-Lime} Mexi-Corn Dip

Yeah, so this recipe probably isn’t new.  And while it’s probably all over Pinterest, I honestly haven’t even looked because every now and then I like to pretend that I’ve discovered something new.

And this is new.  To me.

Which is a little disconcerting, given my love for anything Mexican food related, or food that can be consumed with an accompanying bag of tortilla chips.

Last weekend, we attended a family birthday party, and like most anything my family does, this party came complete with food.  Lots of food.  And this dip.

Dip that I pretty much scarfed and considered my actual meal.

Well, let’s just say it should have been considered an actual meal, given the sheer quantity that I shoved in my mouth.

If you’re planning on hosting a Cinco de Mayo party this year, this would be a great dip to serve as an appetizer.

Or, you know, just the main course.

{Cilantro-Lime} Mexi-Corn Dip
recipe adapted from my cousin. I added the cilantro, lime, and jalepeno, because that's how we like it around here! I think black beans would also be a great addition.
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup cilantro
  • juice of one lime
  • 1 can Rotel, drained
  • 1 can corn, drained
  • 1 jalepeno, diced
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  1. Mix all ingredients, stirring to combine.
  2. Let stand in refridgerator for two hours prior to serving.
  3. Enjoy!

    this recipe is new to me, too. will definitely have to try it! i’ll probably try subbing greek yogurt instead of mayo since i’m not a huge mayo fan, but everything else looks fab to me!

    I make a dip similar to this, but mine doesn’t have lime. LOVE that addition! Will definitely be trying it this way. Thanks for linking up to the Weekend Potluck. Have a great weekend!

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
