This dip was a BIG hit at our tailgate. Will be making it often. And yes it is addicting!


This dip is delicious and different. I brought it to a party and got a lot of compliments and requests for the recipe. All the flavors blend together and the corn and walnuts blend in and don't sort of jump out on their own. I did tweak the recipe..I added a blend of olive and corn oil and extra lime juice. I used smoky hot ancho chile powder and paprika instead of the red chile powder. I also added the spices slowly to taste, rather than all at once. Oh, and I used thawed frozen corn instead of canned (I think canned has an odd flavor) and I toasted the walnuts, and used my Kitchenaid mixer to blend it all together really well.


Hmmm, didn't think this dip was one to rave over. The cream cheese sets up very firm after it has chilled; hence many broken chips. Maybe could thin with milk or sour cream? Used 1 teaspoon cayenne and it was plenty spicy. Had a LOT leftover after party, so must not have been a big hit. Tasted better after a couple days. The corn/walnut is still something of an acquired taste though.
