really great dip! the chopped veggies with the corn gave it a great texture, and wonderful flavor. the flavor of the peppers, onion, and jalapeno was a wonderful combination. not a traditional dip, but still very simple to throw together, with basic ingredients. i made this exactly as the recipe read, and it was way too much for 2 people, but BF loved it, so i'm sure the leftovers won't be around too long!

Hubby would have given this 5 stars, but I hung back a bit. He loves fried corn, and I don't find it as enticing...which definately accounts for our difference of opinion on this recipe. I used frozen corn, halved the recipe and served with Fritos. It was a different kind of dip. The recipe was very easy to prepare and a change of pace from our usual dips.
