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.

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!

What if I don’t have a Trader Joe’s near me? Can I make my own street corn for this recipe?

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! All you need to do is combine 1 1/2 cups corn kernels (fresh is preferred but if not you can use canned just make sure to rinse and drain)2 tbsp mayo, 2 tbsp plain greek yogurt or sour cream, 1 tsp chili powder, 1/2 tsp paprika and some salt to taste!

Can I substitute anything for the Cotija cheese?

Cotija is best for this recipe but if you can’t buy it where you live feta makes an acceptable substitute. If you’re looking for a project, you could also try making your own!

What should I serve with this Hot Street Corn Dip?

Chips for dipping! I love 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. If it can scoop up some dip and it goes with Mexican flavors, you can serve it with this dip!
