Why another cooking blog?

I decided to create this blog as a way for family and friends to see what I'm cooking and to share interesting food related tidbits I come across.
I'm frequently asked for recipes so I thought this would be a good place to start collecting the old, new, and funky recipes that I have.

Hot Corn Dip

Good grief this stuff is pretty awesome! Of course I found it on pinterest and promptly posted to my Food! board to be forgotten like a lot of the recipes on there. I'm glad I tried it, Jeff and I ate half the dish by ourselves right out of the oven.

From: GinaMariesKitchen.com

2 cups shredded chedder cheese
1 cup shredded Montery Jack
2 tbs chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, diced small
1 small can (4oz) diced green chilies, undrained
1/2 cup Mayo
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 11oz can of corn, drained
1 small tomato
2 tbs cilantro, chopped
2 tbs green onions, sliced thin

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the cheeses, chipotle and green peppers, mayo, garlic powder and corn together. Pour into an oven safe dish.
Bake 20 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly
Top with diced tomatoes, green onions, and cilantro. Serve immediately with tortilla chips.

My notes:
I had everything on hand to make this except the diced chilies, but I don't think it makes a huge difference. I put 1 whole chipotle pepper diced up real small. I have made this twice and plan on making it for the 4th as well. Everyone who has tried it has really liked it. It's pretty awesome. Jeff thinks bacon would go well on top and I agree, so I may try that next time and I'm going to double the recipe.

  1. I will say that this dip is great! It has been one of our favorite appetizers and can even be part of a light lunch or dinner.
