How to make Corn Queso Dip

This baked Corn Queso Dip involves minimal prep work (grilling the corn ahead of time is a time saving tip), for the maximum melty goodness of goat cheese, cheddar cheese, heavy cream, and more.

  1. You can blanch the corn ahead and grill it for a charred flavor (the best).
  2. Boil the corn (7 minutes) and cut off the cob. (Skip the grilling, but you won’t get the charred flavor.)
  3. You can use canned corn (drained), but it’s not quite as good.

Easy Corn Queso Dip Recipe

This dip is best with grilled corn, however, you can fully blanch the corn for 7 minutes and skip grilling.


  • 6 ears of corn, blanched for 3 minutes and grilled
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 10.5 oz goat cheese
  • 3 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 c chives, finely chopped, plus more to garnish
  • 1/4 c cilantro, finely chopped, plus more to garnish
  • 1 c sharp cheddar shreds
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  • Heat the oven to 325°.
  • Cut the kernels from the grilled or blanched cobs, setting 1/2 heaping cup of kernels aside. Transfer the remaining kernels to a blender or a food processor and purée with the cream, goat cheese, flour, and and herbs—remember to save some to garnish. Blend until smooth, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Scrape the dip into an 8-inch (or similar sized) baking dish and spread the remaining kernels, and top along with the cheddar cheese shreds.
  • Bake until the dip is bubbly and browned on top, 1 hour. Garnish with chives and cilantro to serve.
