Try this dip for your Cinco de Mayo party
Welcome to my last Cinco de Mayo recipe post of the season. Sigh. My favorite holiday is only 3 days away and since I'm currently out of town, all of the Cinco de Mayo prep has officially been done! If you've been following along, you've seen lots of dips and lots of margaritas!! My kind of party. But I'm ending it all with my favorite of the bunch, HOT MEXICAN STREET CORN DIP! So much flavor, spice, and CHEESE...just perfect for Cinco de Mayo!
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)
