This cheesy corn dip is pure comfort food and ridiculously easy to make! Perfect for get togethers or a Cinco de Mayo party!
Paul and I used to own a little house right next door to a hole-in-the-wall Mexican restaurant (the best kind, right?) I mean, we literally could step outside our front door and walk about 300 feet and Bam! the best authentic Mexican food. Needless to say, we ate there A LOT. We’ve lived in a few places since those days and were so excited to take the kids back there when they were old enough.
They hated it.
They don’t like enchiladas, or tacos, or burritos, or quesadillas. Who doesn’t like quesadillas??? After many years, I’ve decided they just don’t care for flour or corn tortillas. And beans. And cumin…. and certainly those things put together. So, you know, Mexican food.
It’s killing me a little.
They do love tortilla chips with salsa, guacamole, or Queso dip, though. Go figure. So I made this the other day when we had friends over, thinking this would surely be a hit! Nope. Sigh.
But everyone else loved it! Because DUH. It’s delicious and our friends aren’t weirdos.
Seriously make this. It’s really really good. And so easy. Perfect for Cinco de Mayo!
