My Skinny Mexican Street Corn is one of my favorite recipe on the site, but you guys KNOW I love hot and cheesy dips above all else. So I thought, why not combine the two? Make a hot and cheesy version of my favorite cold quick dip?! The result is perfection, if I do say so myself!

I made this when my parents were in town to watch the Blue's game...and my dad was more than impatient while waiting for me to take pictures. I thought Scout was a beggar!! My dad has a thing for chips and dip, it's his calling card. If he approves of this Hot Mexican Street Corn Dip, I hope you will too! He was a BIG fan! (after I made him hand model AND wait far too long)
