Easy and delicious hot Mexican street corn dip! The best party appetizer or snack using just a handful of simple ingredients.
I had to post one last recipe that would be great for Cinco De Mayo! This hot Mexican street corn dip is definitely what you need. With a margarita too. It’s easy and quick to make. You can prep it ahead of time then just pop it in the oven to get it heated up.
For this corn dip recipe I used Trader Joe’s frozen Mexican street corn to make it a bit easier and time efficient. However, making your own Mexican style street corn is super easy. I will post how to make your own in the notes section of the recipe. I know not everyone has a Trader Joe’s nearby!
What you need for the recipe:
Trader Joe’s frozen Mexican street corn (or you can make your own)
Plain greek yogurt, sour cream will also work
Cotija cheese (the frozen street corn comes with cotija but I like adding more, and I prefer it fresh off the block)
Chili powder, garlic, powder, salt and pepper
Fresh chopped cilantro
Chips for dipping.. tortilla chips, plantain chips, or my personal favorite – Trader Joe’s elote corn dippers! If you want to be healthier you can even use celery.

I’m clearly a fan of all things Mexican street corn. Moving to Texas probably did that to me. It makes a great side for any taco night. Plus, there’s a ton of things you can do with it! This dip might just be my favorite though.
I hope you love this recipe as much as I do!Print
