Findings & Asterisks 

I stumbled upon this recipe quite by accident not looking for recipes at all. (more on where in a moment) It looked really good to me, but just wasn’t sure it was going to be “kid friendly” due to the onions and peppers, and since most of my parties and gatherings have lots of little ones…it ended up pinned to my pinterest board for over a year before I made it.

I have to tell you, I’ve made this a couple of times now and if you like corn THIS IS A KEEPER! The first time I made it the smallest of kids were not to keen on the amount of heat by the jalapeños. Everyone else? Let’s just say there wasn’t a kernel left.

This is a great party dip for ALL occasions and will definitely be the one everybody talks about. And it’s so quick and easy you could even have the kids make it up. With our lives so full and fast paced, we all need a quick go to party dish right?

Okay, so while surfing the net for a DIY project, I came across a wonderful site called Inspired By Charm. Michael, the man behind the blog has a little something for the DIY-er to interior design, entertaining and more. His site is beautifully done and his photography is breath taking. That is where I found this great recipe. He gives all the credit to Gooseberry Patch, and as did he, I will as well. But kudos to Michael for sharing and a wonderful website. I encourage you all to check it out!

On to the asterisks ***

I found it difficult to find the corn with diced peppers and I prefer fresh ingredients where possible, so I diced 1/3 cup fresh red bell pepper instead.

The full 7oz can of jalapeños makes the dip fairly spicy, so if you have children, I suggest cutting the amount in half. Or even better, use fresh. Start with one pepper diced very small, (remove seeds) and add as you go. It tastes fresher and seems less hot to me.

Personally, I think this dip has so many wonderful flavors I don’t think it needs the green onion, but try it both ways. Either way, it’s going to be a hit!

Enjoy~
