A cheesey, spicey corn side dish.

Top Review by Sara 76

This is more of a dip than a side dish..which was exactly what we wanted! I used a red onion, canned jalepeno chillies, and minced red chillies. We served it with toasted tortilla wedges. It was hot and spicy, and delicios! I loved it, and will definately be making it again next time I need a chilli fix! Made for ZWT7 - South America.
