Grilled Corn Dip is a creamy, spicy, slightly sweet snack for any time of the year. With loads of great flavor from cilantro, lime, chili powder, and cumin, this is an irresistibly dippable version of Mexican street corn.

While this dip is best made with freshly grilled corn, it’s also delicious when made with pretty much any leftover roasted, sauteed, steamed, or boiled corn.

Feel free to make this with canned corn or frozen corn as well, if you don’t happen to have a pile of leftover or fresh corn waiting to be used in the middle of summer.

You simply can’t go wrong with a warm bowl of corn dip and a pile of tortilla chips any time of year. Seeing how this has been my dinner for the past couple of nights, (no joke) I’m here to tell you this really is that good.

This Mexican Corn Dip is reminiscent of Street Corn, just a whole lot simpler to make, as you can throw it together with any corn you happen to have on hand.

I like to grill a whole pile of corn anytime during the summer when I happen to be grilling. We eat as many ears of piping hot Grilled Corn as possible and then I use the rest of it for a batch of this grilled corn dip or for tossed salads.

Tortilla chips are my go to for corn dip. But large wedges of red bell pepper are so good with this as well. If you have cojita cheese on hand, go ahead and sprinkle that on top.

Does your grocery store have lightly dried cilantro in the produce section? It can be hard to use an entire bunch of cilantro before it goes bad and oftentimes our grocery store is out of fresh.

The lightly dried cilantro will last up to 4 weeks in the refrigerator and works nicely. It’s a terrific backup plan when fresh is unavailable.

Grilled Corn Dip is street corn awesomeness in a bowl!

Corn Dip Ingredients

  • Grilled Corn
  • mayonnaise
  • sour cream
  • fresh lime juice
  • kosher salt
  • chili powder
  • ground cumin
  • fresh cilantro

Easy Corn Dip Recipe

  1. Grill or roast the corn. Cool and remove the kernels from the cobs.
  2. In a medium-size saucepan or skillet, (this Misen pan is the perfect skillet) whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, lime juice, salt, chili powder, and cumin. Warm over medium heat and then add the corn.
  3. Stir to combine and top with cilantro. Taste and adjust salt and other seasonings to taste. Serve grilled corn dip with plenty of tortilla chips.

Corn makes for a great side dish, hot or cold. Heavy cream combines with Parmesan cheese to make a rich, delicious sauce for a cheesy corn side dish.

For another of my favorite corn sides, try this southwest-inspired corn salad with fresh corn, bell peppers, jalapenos, cilantro, and onion.

We do love spicy at our house and shishito peppers fit that bill. With a little bit of oil, plenty of salt, and a squeeze of lemon we enjoy this restaurant-style treat at home.
