Vegan Cheesy Mexican Street Corn Dip

June 16, 2021
I went to a cookout over the weekend and I got sent home with a big bag of leftover corn on the cob. When I have a bunch of corn that I need to use up, I like to turn it into Mexican street corn. Instead of making the standard recipe that I usually use, I decided to cut the corn off the cob and use it to make a dip instead. I incorporated all of the same flavors as classic street corn but this dip is much more versatile.

This makes a spicy and refreshing dip for the summer and is perfect to bring along on picnics or potlucks. You can serve this with tortilla chips, add a scoop to your tacos and burritos, or eat it alongside some rice and greens. Feel free to add more or less spice, depending on your preference.
