Cheesy Corn Black Bean Dip

This cheesy corn black bean dip is so scrumptious and flavorful! Grab a beer, a bag of chips and enjoy every delicious cheesy bite!

If I watched football I’d say this was the perfect football app. But since I don’t… it’s just the perfect app. Period.

Cheesy Corn Black Bean Dip l

All my die-hard from scratch friends, close your eyes. Closed? Okay good, because I opened a few-three-or-four cans {I know, I know} my twelve-year-old daughter even said ” Mommmmm this isn’t very “scratchy”… yes she even did the whole air quote thingies. But if I told you that you’d have to cook and scrape of the kernels to 4 ears of corn {if you’re lucky to find them this time of year!}, roast a jalapeno, red and green pepper, skin, seed and chop them… would you even make this dip? My grocery store did all of the scraping, roasting and chopping for me, so I’m taking advantage of it. Please don’t hate me for it ;).

dip stuff

For this dip you’ll need two {11 ounce} drained cans of corn; one with chipotle pepper and one that has jalapenos. Then a can of black beans, green chiles, three green onions, a cup of mayo, a quarter cup of sour cream, lots of Monterrey and pepper jack cheese and some salt.

Did I mention there’s cheese in this dip?

green onions the light and dark green parts

Slice up three green onions, the dark and light green parts only.


Add the corn to a large bowl…

black beans and green chiles

…along with black beans, chiles…

green onions

…green onions…


…and toss.

mayo and sour cream

Measure and add in 1 cup mayonnaise and a quarter cup of sour cream.

the cheese

Then. All. That. Cheese.


Give it a stir and a taste test with a tortilla chip and season with salt to taste. Really this is all good even before it’s baked to melted cheesy heaven.

spoon into a lightly sprayed baking dish

Add the corn and black bean dip to a sprayed 9×13 baking dish, spread it around and bake in a 350 degree oven for 30-35 minutes until bubbly and golden.

The hardest part is letting it cool down for 25 minutes before dipping your chips in. This will give the dip time to settle and thicken. Otherwise the oil separates and it’ll look curdle-y and so not cheesy-like at all.

    Haha! I am normally all from scratch too, but hey corn is so good and only in season for like 2 months. Sometimes the can just has to do. Love this Laurie!

    A few cans every once in a while is okay, especially if you’re making something really delicious!

    Not going to lie, I’m bummed about this. I subscribed to this blog to be inspired to do more scratch cooking, but black beans from the can? Dry beans are at the core of scratch cooking and not as hard to find as fresh corn on the cob. But even then, spice up a can of corn by doing the “scraping, roasting and chopping”, because doesn’t that come with the territory of scratch cooking? Also, a homemade mayo would have been so fun to see. Oh well, my search continues!

    • simplyscratch replied: — January 3rd, 2014 @ 6:11 pm

      Hi Tracy! I’m sorry you’re feeling bummed about this recipe. In my opinion there are so many different levels of “from scratch” and this is probably the least scratchy of them all. However if you wanted to make this dip more from scratch by soaking your beans, roasting your corn/peppers feel free to do so, you won’t even need to change the recipe all that much :). Oh and if you would like, here’s a link to a recipe where I make homemade mayo for an aioli! It’s so SO good!! Have a great weekend!

    Thank you for recipe – looks like a real crowd pleaser! I’m glad you slipped in a can opening recipe! 🙂

    This looks awe….some…. and I think we CAN make it healthy, or at least, healthier! I’ll substitute Greek yogurt for all the mayo & sour cream and cut out 50% of the fat right there. I just make up that 50% number but I’ll bet it’s close! I do this with almost every recipe that calls for mayo and sour cream. Honestly, family & friends never know and still love the recipes. I’ll have to confess,however, that I cannot get used to the flavor or low-fat cheese. Life is all about compromise! Thanks for the great recipe idea!

    This looks so yummy! Silly question, but which store did you find your canned corn? I have a hard time finding mexicorn, so wanted to ask in advance! Would Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s have it? Fingers crossed I can find them at my local Kroger! 🙂 Thanks!

    Haley @ The Girly Girl Cooks — January 3, 2014 at 9:16 pm

    I still consider this recipe pretty much “scratchy”….it’s not like you are opening up a can of condensed soup and using velvetta cheese. This looks fabulous! Definitely putting it on my list of football apps to make!

    Cheese, corn, and black beans. Yup, I’m in!!

    I know I shouldn’t look at food blogs right before lunch, but that dip looks delicious. Unrelated…what plugin do you use for the “Like SS on Facebook” in the bottom right?

    • simplyscratch replied: — January 7th, 2014 @ 2:47 pm

      Hi Eric! Thanks so much 🙂 and if you click on that little “i” in the bottom right corner of the box it should take you to the site so you can create your own:)

    This is so yummy. I made it last nigh with wings for dinner. Perfect dip. Could easily see making this during football season! It was very hard waiting the 20 minutes for it to cool before digging in!

    Just made this this evening (totally forgot to add the green onions) and it was so delicious! Definitely a make again for my house. My store only had the Mexican corn mix with green and red bells so we added the jalapeno’s separate. Thanks for this!

    This is fantastic! In a pinch and having kids that aren’t particularly fond of warm dips, I sometimes serve it as is without heating it. There is never any leftovers!

      I’m so glad, Jami! 🙂
