With summer almost here, we’re enjoying deck and visiting with friends on the weekends more than ever. Recenlty we served drinks and a hot yummy Corn Chorizo Dip for the appetizer! If you love cheese, you may also want to try my Guinness Beer Cheese Dip or Skillet Cheesy Meatball Dip. YUM!

Corn Chorizo Dip

Dips are my favorite and the best appetizers for a party in my opinion. They’re easy to whip up, full of flavor and people can happily gather around them to converse. Of course, serve with a sturdy chip (that will not break when you scoop the dip). [We recently updated this post from August 2014!]

Even if somebody slips in a little “double dipping,” you can let it slide, because we all love dipping this corn and chorizo goodness.

Tips and substitutions:

This hot, baked dip is full of tasty ingredients and fresh corn. I like to buy the corn at Costco (unless it’s truly summer and you can stop off at a Farmer’s Market stand).

Swap out the cheese–use cream cheese, Pepper Jack cheese (for a kick), or even goat cheese.

Save time by this shortcut of using frozen corn. 

Use a sturdy chip (one that will not break under pressure), as you dip the thick cheese!
