Corn Dip

The history of corn is long and storied, and it's worth becoming familiar with the path it's traced over time. The result of that history is that corn is everywhere in North America (and plenty of other places, too). Corn can be enjoyed in many ways, and this corn dip is going to become your new favorite way!

Inspired by street corn and Mexican corn dips, this corn-forward snack uses a creamy mayo-yogurt mix to form the base of the dip and a mixture of spices to draw out some delicious flavor.

It's also designed to be as easy as possible, with ingredients that come straight from a can or jar and go right into the bowl. Sometimes, you've only got a precious few minutes to throw something together—like that potluck you forgot to prepare for—and this recipe can be a real time saver.

Corn dip ingredients

Here's what goes into this corn dip recipe:

  • 3 cans fire roasted corn
  • 1 can diced tomatoes & green chiles
  • ½ cup greek yogurt
  • ½ cup mayo
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ¼ tsp cayenne

It might not seem like mayonnaise and greek yogurt would play nicely together, but they team up so well in this dip. The greek yogurt provides a real zingy, tangy flavor while the mayo adds some depth and creaminess.

How to make corn dip

It's easy to say that a recipe is only as good as your ingredients. Well, this corn dip recipe truly is all about the ingredients.

This is because there isn't really anything to it. You can just add everything to a bowl and start enjoying right away!

That said, if you have the time, I recommend leaving this in the fridge for a while to let everybody get to know each other. The result is a dip that's even more creamy and flavorful from its time cooling down.

Okay, if you really need some instructions, here you go:

  1. Gather all ingredients.
  2. Add everything to a large bowl. Stir to combine.
  3. Enjoy!

What is corn dip made of?

There are different types of corn dips out there. A lot of the most popular corn dips on the internet are some take on a "Mexican" corn dip, using corn, chiles, spices, and some combination of mayo and sour cream. It's fair to say that this corn dip recipe would fit in that category.

There are some corn dips that utilize bacon and green onions, kind of a take on a loaded baked potato. I've also seen corn dips that are really just cheese dips with a bit of corn sprinkled in for good measure. There are a lot of ways to do it, I just like this recipe a lot!

How long is homemade dip good for?

If you seal this dip in an airtight container, it'll easily last in the fridge for 5-7 days. Greek yogurt is the most "volatile" of the ingredients, if you can call it that. If you use it fresh, though, you might have this dip for up to two weeks! Not that it'll last that long...

The instructions or ingredients should mention that the tomato’s and corn should be drained. I drained all the corn but not the tomato’s and it was too much liquid.

Hi Stephanie, I'm so sorry the recipe instructions failed to mention draining the cans of vegetables. I will add that note in! Thanks for making & hope you're still able to enjoy it!

Really good! Can you tell me about how many grams is a serving?

Hi Cindy, so happy to hear you enjoy this recipe! I don't have the information about grams per serving. This recipe makes 10 servings so my recommendation is to weight the entire recipe, divide by 10, and that number will give you the grams per serving. I hope that helps!

Out of all the things to do with corn, this is becoming one of my favorites. This dip is so easy and just gets better and better as it sits in the fridge.
