Grilled Corn Dip Recipe

Sweet summer corn, mixed with chili powder, cream cheese, and mayo, served up dip-style with grilled corn, spicy chili butter, and salty crumbled Mexican cotija cheese on top. This spicy Mexican Street Corn Dip incorporates all the flavors of street corn into the creamiest corn-filled dip. It’s quick to make and totally delicious, especially with tortilla chips on the side for scooping.

I don’t know why, but dips are something I never share, and this corn dip is so delicious that it really needs to be on repeat all summer long. We’re continuing with our unofficial appetizer week with this incredibly tasty street corn dip.

As usual, I was scrambling to get recipes together for a couple of weeks of travel when I came up with this recipe. I knew I wanted to share some fun appetizers for the Fourth of July, but I was sick of the typical Caprese type of app and wanted something completely different.

Yes, in case you missed my stories on Instagram, Mexico is the family’s summer vacation destination! I’ll share more details on Sunday, but I flew from NYC to Puerto Vallarta and met my family in Sayulita yesterday. I’m excited to be here for the next few days. We were all craving Mexican food, so I made this dip to get us all excited.

I was going to make my version of street corn, except that I wanted to turn it into a dip instead because I love a good ear of grilled corn, but I think creamy dips are so much more fun, especially when entertaining over the Fourth of July.
