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?

Then add in the corn, black beans, chiles, green onions into a large bowl and toss.


mayo and sour cream

Next, measure and add in 1 cup mayonnaise and a quarter cup of sour cream.

the cheese

Then. All. That. Cheese.


Then 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.

Next add the corn and black bean dip to a sprayed 9×13 baking dish, spread it around and bake in a 350° 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.
