Tex-Mex Corn Dip

Tex-Mex Corn Dip

Sweet corn is one of the many benefits of summer and I take full advantage of it. Grilled or roasted with plenty of butter and seasoning. I love elote which is a Mexican street corn but there is also a dish called esquites in which the kernels are sliced off the cob and sauteed in butter. Both versions get a dose of mayo and cheese and the esquites are typically served in a bowl and eaten with a spoon. Sounds like the makings of a great dip to me and I added some of the flavors of the southwest like tomatoes and cumin.

Summer also means back yard get-togethers and that means dips and snacks. I had the dip so now to choose the chip to go with it. I like browsing all the new flavors and there's usually quite a lot of wandering back and forth in the chip aisle trying to decide. Do other people do this?? I usually end up picking one new thing and one old stand-by for just in case.

I am a sucker for anything involving avocados, though, so the guacamole chips from Food Should Taste Good were speaking to me in the chip aisle. And they were a winner - full flavored and with a little bit of heat that matched perfectly with the natural sweetness of the corn and tomatoes in my dip. This is some seriously addictive stuff. Enjoy!

  1. Ha I'm notorious for walking up and down, up and down aisles trying to decide what to buy. I even start talking out loud and people are usually um just buy your item and leave. I've heard so many good things about Mexican street corn but never actually had any. Can't wait to try this dip!
