It is the middle of July, so that also means that it is the middle of the summer! And when its summer, that also means that its the season for corn. So, today I am sharing with you a recipe for Not Your Average Corn Dip.Jump to Recipe
Corn Dip started from corn on the cob.
Corn on the cob is a food that brings memories of summer barbecues and little faces smeared with corn juice and butter! It is such an easy food to prepare and it is also one that most people enjoy, so you know it is sure to be a winner at dinnertime.
I am not one to normally buy fresh corn on the cob. My family does enjoy eating corn, but it is mostly from a can or frozen, when we prepare it for meals. Nevertheless, I am excited to join the collab and try out a recipe with some fresh corn on the cob.
So, I started off trying to find a way to prepare the corn in a different way, but also something that would be easy. I stumbled upon recipes for Mexican Corn Dip or Elote Corn Dip. The recipes seemed easy enough to do and so I began my journey. I quickly came to realize that I did not have all of the exact ingredients call for in the recipe, so, of course, I improved. And from that came Not Your Average Corn Dip. This recipe was surprisingly tasty, it has a slight zing Miracle Whip and nice crunch from the fresh corn on the cob.
Sister Circle Collab
This month, I am participating in a video collab on YouTube, with a group called the Sister Circle. The call to action is to prepare fresh corn on the cob. Not frozen corn, not canned corn, but fresh corn on the cob. It is not given what exactly we had to prepare with the corn, we just had to start off our recipes with fresh corn on the cob.
So, here is my version of Corn Dip.
First, start off with fresh corn on the cob. A really simple and easy way to cook fresh corn quickly AND be able to remove the husk and silks super fast is to cook the corn in the microwave. Cook the corn for 4 to 5 minutes per one ear of corn and 1 additional minute for each additional ear of corn.
After the corn has cooked and cooled down a bit, it is time to remove the husks and silks from corn. Cut off the bottom of the corn cobs and then squeeze the corn from the top while letting the corn slide out the bottom, cut end of the corn cob.
Cut corn kernels from corn cobs. Discard corn cobs and wash off corn.
Next, you will add butter to a large pan and melt over medium heat.
Once the butter has melted and the pan has heated up, add in corn kernels and cook for about 8 minutes, until the corn turns golden brown, while stirring occasionally.
Then you will add in the crushed garlic and red onions. Continue to cook for an additional 2 more minutes.
After the corn, garlic and onions have cooked to a golden brown, remove the corn mixture from the pan and transfer to a bowl. Add in dried parsley, chipotle rub, Miracle Whip, Goat Cheese and lime juice. Stir until all ingredients are well combined.
