Cracked Corn Dip Recipe


  • 3 cups of sweet corn (frozen or fresh off the cob)
  • 1 cup of mayo
  • 1 cup of sour cream
  • 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 can of green chilies, drained
  • 1 jalapeno, finely diced
  • 1 small red onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 cup of fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Tortilla chips, for serving

Note: The jalapeno is totally optional, but I love a little heat to balance out the creamy sweetness of the corn.


  1. First, preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). While it’s heating up, let’s get our corn ready. If you’re using fresh corn, cut the kernels off the cob. If you’re using frozen, let it thaw.
  2. Combine the corn, mayo, sour cream, shredded cheese, green chilies, diced jalapeno, diced onion, and garlic powder in a large bowl. I always sneak a taste at this point, because why not? And if it needs more heat, I might add another jalapeno.
  3. Season your mixture with salt and pepper. Be generous with the seasoning, it really makes the flavors pop!
  4. Transfer this bowl of goodness to an oven-safe baking dish. Spread it out evenly and then sprinkle a bit more cheese on top, because there’s no such thing as too much cheese, right?
  5. Pop the dish in the oven and bake it for 20-25 minutes, or until it’s bubbly and slightly browned on top. The wait will be a little torturous, but the outcome is worth it, I promise!
  6. Once it’s baked, sprinkle the fresh cilantro on top. It adds a lovely splash of color and a burst of fresh flavor.
  7. Serve your Cracked Corn Dip warm with tortilla chips. Trust me, once you dip, you can’t stop!

There you have it! A delicious, hearty dip that’s a total crowd-pleaser. One of the things I love most about this recipe is how easy it is to adapt. Want to make it a little heartier? Toss in some cooked bacon. Prefer a different cheese? Go for it!

But I have to warn you, once your friends get a taste of this Cracked Corn Dip, you’ll be the designated dip-bringer for all future get-togethers. But hey, that’s not a bad title to have, is it?

So, get out there, and start dippin’!
