Cheesy Grilled Corn Dip for #SundaySupper
Cheesy Grilled Corn Dip is an easy to put together appetizer recipe that celebrates a summer staple: corn! Dip with chips, top your tacos, and more!
Recipe type: Appetizer
  • 4 cups corn kernels (about 5 ears)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ red onion, diced
  • 2 small jalapenos, diced (de-seeded, if desired)
  • 1 small green bell pepper, diced (about ½ cup)
  • 4 ounces Neufchâtel cheese
  • 3 ounces plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, grated/shredded
  • ½ teaspoon smoked chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Juice from ½ lime
  • Small bunch cilantro, leaves and stems chopped fine (about ¼ cup)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Preheat the grill. Brush the corn lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place on the grill and cook for about 10 minutes, turning a few times to yield an even char.
  2. Remove the corn from the grill and set aside until they are cool enough to handle. Then, cut the kernels off of the cob and set the kernels aside in a bowl.
  3. Next, add the butter to a large sauce pan or deep skillet. Heat over medium high - when the butter melts, add the garlic, red onion, jalapenos, and green pepper. Saute for about 5 minutes, until tender and fragrant. Salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Add the corn, Neufchâtel cheese, Greek yogurt, cheddar cheese, smoked chili powder, and the smoked paprika. Cook and stir until smooth and melted/incorporated, about 4-5 minutes.
  5. Remove from the heat, then stir in the lime juice and cilantro. Add some salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Serve the dip warm with tortilla chips - garnish as desired (avocado, bacon, fresh jalapenos, etc!). Enjoy!
