Hot Corn Dip

This is Pioneer Woman's invention.  I just made it and added my own little twists to it to make it a little spicier.

People can't stop eating this dip.  Myself included.  It's creamy, spicy, sweet from the onions and peppers and cheesy.

And you eat it with chips. Maybe you should make it for the Super Bowl.

If you're into that kind of thing.

Hot Corn Dip
Adapted from Pioneer Woman

2 T butter
1 onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 4 oz. cans chopped green chiles
16 oz. frozen corn
8 oz. jalapeño cream cheese
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
8 oz. Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
8 oz. Pepper Jack cheese, shredded

In a medium skillet over high heat (I like to use an iron skillet for this), melt the butter and saute the onion and both peppers.  You want the veggies to get nice and caramelized with flavor - it really makes a difference in the dip.  Add the garlic and green chiles and cook for another minute.  Add the corn and stir until thawed.  Remove from the heat and stir in the cream cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream and Monterey jack cheese.  Pour into a greased 8x8 casserole dish and top with the Pepper Jack.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30-45 minutes until bubbly.  Serve with tortilla chips or Fritos scoops.
