Recipe by Kim-mom-4--se-bg-gm
I got this recipe from my office manager - putting it here for safekeeping. This seems like a nice Thanksgiving/Christmas recipe for get-togethers, or for any occasion in the Fall/Winter. I am really guessing on the servings - planning on making this for our Christmas celebration, so I will have a better idea of number of servings & results then. Give this one a try - it sounds so good!!!

This hot corn dip was absolutely delicious!! I like it even more than Trisha Yearwood's Hot Corn Dip. Made the dip for hubby to enjoy while watching the Packers play on tv today. Instead of using canned corn, I cooked up a 16-ounce bag of Birds Eye Freshlike Frozen Corn, as it's "the best" tasting frozen corn ever, and I microwaved it for exactly 6 minutes (at 3 min intervals) in my 900 watt microwave oven. I also used Ro*Tel's "Original" flavored Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies. I also like the addition of chili powder and garlic powder. This dip was not overly 'hot' tasting (spice wise), and I loved that about the dip, but be careful when removing your baking dish from the oven, as it was steaming hot. I poured the dip into 2 serving shallow bowls, to cool down the dip a bit. While hubby had one bowl and I had the other, I'm not sure we could say this made 6-8 servings. I would say this would possibly make 4 servings. One more thing, the next time I make this dip, I'm considering on only adding 12-ounces of corn, to make the dip a bit more on the creamy side. Hubby says to leave just as is, but I want to play around with the recipe a bit. Kim, I'll let you know if we liked the dip w/less corn and more on the creamy side. This is a fantastic dip, and one I'll be making often. Thank you Kim for posting this recipe, it's definitely a keeper!!!
