Hot Corn Dip
This mixture of corn, diced tomatoes, cream cheese and spices is a great hot and easy appetizer. I crave it all the time!!!!! Serve it with tortilla chips.

I must have missed something!!! Well, I didn't think to drain the Rotel, so it is no wonder that the end product was runny. Cream cheese didn't do what I had hoped, and if I was ever to make this again, I would definitely put in some shredded cheese - cheddar, mozzarella, etc. I am repurposing the entire mess, as there is too much good stuff in there to not do that. I am SO glad I did not prepare this, as I had planned, as MY contribution to a holiday gathering!Read More
This is always a huge hit at our cookouts. I do make the following revisions: add 2tbsp sour cream, 1/2 tsp cumin, omit the cilantro, add parsley, and add shredded cheddar half way through baking.
Perfect dip. I always double the recipe and add 1/2 tsp of cumin to it. No need to add cheese for color, the dip is wonderful by itself. Oh, and to keep the dip hot, I just throw everything into a crock pot and set it on high for 1 hour and it's ready. I don't even bother baking it in the oven. My co-workers go crazy over it every time!
Super easy and fast. I added a little cayenne pepper for an extra zing. Some cheddar on top for a little extra color. Made this for a party, they were scraping the bowel. I recieved three calls the next day asking for the recipe!
I had friends coming over and needed to feed them quickly and easily. This dip was wonderful and they ate it faster that it took to make it!
This is addictive! I cut the diced tomatoes in 1/2 and added southwestern style salsa for more kick. Very good.
This recipe is so easy to make and tastes great. My husband keeps requesting it! I've started adding crushed red peppers to kick it up a bit, makes it even better!
Delish! make sure to drain corns, tomatoes WELL! I added about a tsp of cumin and adobo seasoning and 2 tsp. chili powder. Next time I'm adding some green onion and melting some jalapeno jack cheese on top. Easy and quick!!! :)
Wow, I just loved this recipe! I did cut everything in half as it was just my husband and me, so I only used one can of yellow corn. I thought it tasted great that way, so I imagine with the white corn it's even better. I didn't soften the cream cheese, but did dice it and stirred halfway throught the cooking time. I have to say the dip got better with every bite. I will definitely make it again, thanks for posting!
Wow. This was DELICIOUS! Honestly, I clicked on the link expecting to find something gross, but was surprised when it sounded good. And it WAS. Next time, I think I might throw it in the crock pot (minus the cheese) while I'm at work. Then stir in the cheese later.
Changed a few things: 1. Added 1 fresh jalepeno, chopped 2. Added 1/2 c. or so of shredded cheddar 3. Cooked it longer than stated in recipe 4. Ate w/ Fritos scoops and tortilla chips I loved this. I baked it in an 8x8 dish after mixing all ing. in a bowl. I baked it probably 45 mins or more; the middle wasn't bubbling. My husband and I sat down to eat it and before we knew it the entire thing was gone!
I made this recipe without any changes because the other reviews varied so much I thought it best to taste it as is before making changes. First of all, I love cilantro, but it is what's known as a "soft herb" and heat kills the taste. If you like cilantro, adding it close to the end of or after baking will increase the flavor. As far as the difference of opinion on rotel vs. salsa and hot or mild, that's simply a matter of taste. My mother would love this recipe as is, I thought it a little bland. Over all, I think it's a decent basic recipe that could be tweaked to your own taste. I will make it again, but next time, I will take other reviewers advice about adding cumin, spicy salsa, garlic and cheddar cheese to make it more flavorful.

The first time I made this, I followed the recipe as written and found it very bland. I decided to try it again, making a few changes. I added 1/8 cup finely diced onions, a little more than half of a package of taco seasoning (in place of the chili powder), 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese, and half a can of black beans (drained and rinsed).
I usually use two cans of yellow corn - sometimes the white corn is hard to find. I also just microwave it for about 2-3 minutes instead of bake - it's a big time saver. It's a favorite!
This gets a 5 for being easy. Followed directions exactly and my guests loved it. Served w/ frito scoops.
Very good, easy to make. Needs a little more kick but can be adjustd to taste.
This is easy and yummy! It was a big hit at the bbq party I took it to. The only change I made was to leave out the cilantro. Make sure to drain the tomatoes really well.
Disappointed in this, especially after all the good reviews. Glad I only made 1/2 of the recipe. ~~~ UPDATE: the day after the party, I microwaved the uneaten dip and tried it again. Must say I have a much higher opinion of it today. I think there was too much competition last night. I'm raising the rating based on a second tasting. ;-)
This was pretty good. I used a can of mexicorn instead of white because it is what I had on hand. I also added 1/2 cup of pico de gallo, 1/2 tsp of cumin, and 1 tsp of Mexican spice blend instead of the chili and garlic powder separately.
This is habit forming. I creamed the cream cheese (room temperature is best) with the spices (except the cilantro) before I added everything else. I've made it with and without the cilantro...best with it!! I also top with a little cheddar/jack cheese before baking. Great addition!
I love this dip. It is a good mix up from your typical salsa. I just mix everything up and throw it in the microwave. Sometimes I add a little shredded cheese into the mixture.
I used frozen corn and it worked very well. I changed up the spices a bit and added green onions which were a nice addition. It was pretty good, but not amazing. UPDATE: used fresh corn that I grilled, a fresh tomato and a fresh jalapeño instead of the canned. SO so so good. I then used Hidden Valley Ranch fiesta mix instead of the other seasonings. It's so good.
Was kind of disappointed, but still gave it 4 stars. We used Rotel because that has more umph to it, used the garlic & chili powder also, but it didn't have much kick. Will make again, but try Rotel tomatoes again & double the chili powder.
YUMMY!!!! Can be used as a side dish also, it was a big hit at the Cinco de Mayo party!
Made it for a girls weekend and it was gone in no time. Added black beans as some had suggested and also 1/2 of a 4 oz can of chopped jalapeno's. Served with scoops. Will definately make again.
I love this recipe!! Everyone always ask me to make this. I cook it in a slow cooker and it is great for any party or potluck. The only thing I do different is I use a cajun spice instead of the chili powder.
Great appetizer! Loved it as the recipe is -- but next time I might try it with some sausage added.
No need to make any changes to the original recipe...at least in my opinion. I forgot to add the garlic powder and I used fat-free cream cheese; it was a hit with the guys! I made the mixture hours earlier than needed and put it in the fridge. Then I put it in the oven, but it was taking longer than I wanted so I just popped it in the microwave and served. I didn't add any other cheese either. Very tasty and a great choice for a different type of dip. Didn't have any leftovers!
This was a hit with some lady friends. I added shredded Chicken to it and they all loved it. I'm going to make it again for our family Christmas gathering for my husbands family this time I'm gonna use Chorizo. I hope they like it.
This was good just not my favorite. It seemed to be missing something to me. I would have liked it spicier so next time i will add some chopped pickled jalapeno and maybe some shredded cheese.
I served this today for the first time and was disappointed, I did leave out cilantro and subsituted green onions because I do not like cilantro, but even with chili powder the dip was very bland,, maybe make it one more time with bacon for extra flavor,, and some frenches onions on top to add some crunch,,
I used frozen corn and it turned out great. We even made quesadillas with the leftovers
I made this for a cook out we had at my new job,no pressure to make something delicious right? This turned out great! I did add some taco seasoning for extra flavor. Personally, I think it could have used a little heat,but I didn't want to set my new co-worker's mouths on fire.
I am SO glad all the reviews are so nearly unanimous. It IS such a wonderful recipe, and one to be made over and over again! Unless you are having a very large party, be sure to change servings.
Very good, I was a little hesitant but it was gone in seconds at a party. Great recipe!
I made this for our monthly Bunko gathering - we were having a Mexican Fiesta theme - and it was a huge hit! Everybody wanted to know what was in it - there definitely wasn't another appetizer like it there! The only thing I changed was to add about a 1/2 to 3/4 cup of Kraft Mexican Style Four Cheese blend. Yummy!
I added cheddar cheese and some cooked chorizo- made it very hearty we ate it as dinner!! I also used onion and chive whipped cream cheese for some extra flavor and easy blending.
A girl brought this to a tennis match and it was a huge hit! It was gone long before we finished our match. So, I made it for my husband and he couldn't stop eating it either. I added some sour cream and a little red peper to give it some spice. It may not be "pretty" but it is very addictive and delicious!!!
It took me less than 10 minutes to throw this together, and I baked it for 35 minutes. I added 1 teaspoon of cumin and a heaping tablespoon of mayo (the kind with olive oil) to the recipe. I brought it to a cook-out, and I had one request for the recipe, and many comments on how yummy it is. I can see many variations...adding cheese, or bits of green onion, salsa instead of the tomatoes. I will definitely be making this recipe again.
made this on a whim the other day..so easy!! the kids loved it. it was all gone in about 30 minutes!
I made this for a 4th of July party and got rave reviews from everyone. It is unbelievably easy to prepare - took about 10 minutes. I did have to bake it for about 40 minutes to get it very hot. Loved it! Next time I will try it using Ro-tel with habeneros for a spicier version.
Doubled the recipe, did not use cilanto, used 1/3 less fat cream cheese, and made it in the slow cooker. YUM! This dip was a hit...All of it was gone by the end of a 3 hour pool party. I had several people ask for the recipe. Because of the bang for the buck, the ease of the recipe, the amount it can feed, and the great taste (nothing compromised), this will be part of my regular party dip rotation.
This is a delicious dip, not to mention easy. Whenever I need a potluck recipe I always use this one. I also have to double it because half of it is always gone before I can even get it out the door.
This is delicious, I add shredded cheese on top and let it melt.
Yes, it is unappetizing looking, but once you get past it, it tastes great. I added a little cheese and used Rotel. Yum!
I really enjoyed this. However, I did not use this as a dip; instead, I used it as a filler, along with leftover chicken, for burritos. Yummy!
Simple to make, inexpensive and YUMMY! I followed the recipe exactly. I like more of a kick, but since we had company, I didn't want to chance it. I think I may add some picked jalapenos next time. This is definitely a keeper!
We added about a cup of shredded mexican cheese, it was delicious!
Very tasty recipe!! I added jalapenos for a little extra zing. Good with Frito Scoops.
Was delicious. Made only 2 changes. Added 1 TBS of Cumin and 1 TBS Chili Powder! Deffinately a keeper!
Excellent recipe! I cut this in half and between two of us we ate over half the dish. I used dried cilantro. I added a couple of spoonfuls of chopped jalapeno from the jar because the diced tomato-chiles by itself is rather mild and needs a little kick. This was a wonderful side dish. Thanks, the hubs raved over this.
Made it as directed, and it was pretty darned good. I thought it was only worthy of 4 stars, but my guests raved about it and made me promise to give it 5 stars. So, 5 it is.
Everyone loved this! I doubled the recipe and threw it in the crock pot to serve at a fall party. I have been asked to bring it again this year.
Terrific! Great flavor. Made this for a potluck. I should have made a double batch because it does not make a lot but it was delicious and I will make this again. I omitted the cilantro since I am not a fan. Thank you for the recipe!
I added cayenne pepper and diced jalapenos to give it an extra kick! very yummy
This was pretty good but not fabulous, and I don't get people thinking it needed more spice - mine was dang hot! I must have had a really hot can of tomatoes and chilies or something. Anyway, it was really easy and good for spicy dip lovers, great Super Bowl snack.
I love this recipe. No matter where I take this appetizer, people ask me the recipe.
Yummy! I didn't have a can of tomatoes with chili peppers So I used a jar of salsa instead. Other than that I followed the recipe, and I was very happy with the results. Thanks!
I'm one of the few who doesn't care for this, and I'm a fan of both corn AND cream cheese. I even tried adding tabasco to it. It's not terrible, but I won't make it again.
What an Easy appetizer! I've made it several times; people always ask for the recipe. Thanks for sharing.
I ended up mixing this recipe with another corn dip recipe from this site. Maybe mix in some shredded cheddar but don't coat the top of the dip with it before baking. You'll end up with a sheath of cheese that's hard to cut into with a chip. Add some cayanne to this to pick up the zing!
This is delicious! Made it Christmas Eve. Took other reviewers advice and added about 1/4 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, 1/2 teaspoon of cumin. Put more cheese on top right before it was done. A big hit with tortilla chips!
Almost ever time I make this, I'm asked for the recipe! Excellent.
You can not go wrong with an appetizer which has cream cheese. This was devoured. I used frozen corn. Fantastic and EASY!
Outstanding dip I added about a cup of shreddedjack/cheddar to the mix along with some cumin, chili powder and cayenne. Used just a bit of each for a slight kick, not overwhelmingly hot. Got rave reviews and will definitely make again!!
I make this every year for our annual Cinco de Mayo party and it's a huge hit. The warm creamy mixture with the pop of the corn is fantastic and the spices are just right.
I put this in the crockpot on high for 1 hour, and then put it on low. It is definitely a dip that needs to be kept warm. This is a very good dip, and it makes a good amount.
Good but not outstanding ~ made for Christmas day appetizer & served with tortilla chips. Tasted like a creamy chunky salsa & didn't have great eye-appeal. Recipe as written ended up having a rather mild flavor ... I added cumin (yummy), a bit more chili powder, and some red pepper flakes. VERY easy to prepare ~ will make again but play around with the spices a bit more & probably add more cheese to make it more dip-like, rather than salsa-like.
easy and very tasty, don't bother using extra cheese as suggested, it doesn't need it, use low fat cream cheese - fantastic, I served it with turkish bread that I had sliced thinly and browned in the oven
This has been a staple for parties or get togethers in our home. I also add a small can of green chilis, omit the cilantro, add some shredded cheddar cheese and smoky tabasco sauce. If there's ever any leftovers, which is rare, its a good addition to a burrito the next day.
Great dip! I made this for my sorority meeting and everyone loved it.
I took this to dip to work for Super Bowl Friday. At first, I had some strange comments. Corn? Dip? What is this? But, after they tried it with the Fritos Scoops my coworkers were fans. It's really delicious and something different. I did add a little sour cream to make it a little creamier and also added some chili spice since I didn't have any cumin. I have to bring the recipe into work on Monday. I had several request. I'll definately make again!
Easy to make and a real crowd pleaser. At the end of baking, I give it a good stir and top it with shredded cheddar. Then I pop it back in the oven until the cheese melts.
I thought this was really good! I added some diced jalepenos and some shredded monterey jack cheese. Next time I'm going to try substituting half the corn for black beans.
This was very good served with tortilla chips. The trick here is to make sure the cream cheese is room temperature and cut into really small pieces so it melts evenly with the other ingredients.
This is a great party dip. I did used one can gold/white corn and added a can of black beans. I also use Rotel diced tomatoes with peppers and cilantro. Everybody loves it.
this is a good dip! i didnt add cilantro because i didnt have any on hand and my husband isnt a fan of it anyways, otherwise i made as is. next time i make it though i'll add some chopped jalepenos & some pepper jack cheese on top for a little extra spice.
I made this for last thanksgiving as a side dish served with chips, I had a 1/2 and 1/2 responce some people didnt care for how spicy it was and I used the chili's that were mild..others LOVED it I personally loved it, also I made this dish in a crockpot so it would stay warm but definatly use low not high cause it will burn.
Very good, but we put it in a crockpot and had to end up putting in some veleveeta cheese because it got a little bit too dryed out.
My hubby makes this anytime we have people over and it is always a hit! It's the first thing gone and people RAVE over it! (Sometimes I sneak in an extra dash of chili powder when he isn't looking, which gives it a little extra zing!)
I made this for a fall birthday party and served with sloppy Joes, Fritos on the side. I accidentally added 2 cream chesses (the recipe calls for 1) along with 2 tablespoons of sour cream. I also got risky and made it in my small slow cooker, melting the cream cheese and sour cream before adding the corn and the tomatoes with green chilies. (I used the mild Rotel.) It simmered for approximately 2 hours and was a HUGE hit! Not a morsel left, everyone wanting the recipe. The slow cooker made it a nice way to serve and keep it warm as the evening went on. I had 17 people, and decided next time I have a crowd that size I'm going to have to get the larger crock pot out and double the recipe. Very yummy!
I really liked the taste of this dip and I followed the directions exactly. However, my guests that I served it to didn't find the look of it very appealing so it didn't really get eaten. I wouldn't choose to make this again since no one else liked the look of it.
Oh my Goodness!! I had to tear myself away from the half of the bowl I had already eaten (by myself) to save some to bring to work. The rest was gone in under 5 minutes by 6 hungry co-workers. I will MOST DEFINATELY make again - and often!! Thank you for the recipe!!
This will be a regular in our house!I made this for a company potluck today and it was a huge hit! Smelled delicious cooking. Everyone wanted the recipe. I think this can easily be prepared in a crockpot. I followed the recipe exactly as written. Next time I will add some diced fresh jalapenos and cumin. Highly recommended.
A co-worker brought this to an office event. Good Lord! I could have eaten the whole bowl. She said on occasion she has :)
Everyone loves this dip. I've had to double the recipe just to take care of my guests cravings. I too have added some red pepper flakes for a little extra heat. I love how easy it is to make and how great it is to eat. Thanks for the recipe!!
Very good, we added 1/4 tsp cumin, couple tbsp of hot salsa, couple dashes hot pepper flakes, and chedder on top! Only thing I didn't add was the Cilantro
It was just ok. Not a lot of flavor in my opinion and I even added more seasonings.
Naturally, I had to change this a bit -- but that's what's so great about this recipe, small changes don't impact its pleasure. I made a lesser amount - 10 ounce cans of the corn and I didn't have fresh cilantro. With over 100 degrees outside, we didn't want to use the oven, so it was cooked in a two-quart crockpot. Yes, the response was overwhelming! The recipe requested, compliments given and only a taste remained. This one's a keeper.
This is a great recipe. The only thing I change is to add jalepenos (my sister's idea) and add cheddar cheese. It is very good.
I absolutely love this dip and have made it now on several occasions. I usually add some salsa to it as well to spice it up a little bit and omit the cilantro (only because I'm not a big fan of it).
I was hesitant to try this...I've been disappointed by other readers "rave review recipes" but this does not disappoint! It was a HUGE hit at our Christmas Party. I've made it three times in three days! Thanks for a great new recipe that is now on our list of "must haves."
What a great dip! I made this last night for our small group and it was gone almost instantly! I only had yellow corn on hand and I added 1/2 tsp of cumin like others suggested. I also added shredded Colby Jack cheese on top and broiled it the last 4 minutes. I will definitely be making this again soon!
YUM! I added fresh tomatoes and a can of green chiles instead of the canned diced tomatoes/green chile peppers. YUM YUM YUM. I will definitely make this again.
Really good! I increased the garlic and chili powder a bit and added a little cumin and cayenne. Served with tortilla chips. Ten people finished it with no problem, served as a side dish with fajitas!
This dip is so good and easy.
This is so good I can't stop eating it! I did add some leftover rice pilaf after baking, just to add some bulk (and justify eating more of it myself :-). It's DELICIOUS! I'm eating it with Spicy Sweet-flavored corn chips. Must. Stop. Eating. This. Now. (or it will be all gone).
This was quite good.. I had originally set out to make a cold corn dip but once I realized I was out of mayo I had to search for something else. I am SO glad I came across this. I think I actually like it better than the cold corn dip recipes. :) Only change I made was using 2 cans of mexicorn and one white corn with chipotle peppers, so I had about 3 oz more corn in mine than the recipe called for. Looking forward to making again!!
