Reviews for Zesty Corn Dip
"I used the lowest amount of spices and it was perfect. Everyone enjoyed and asked me for the recipe."
"Used frozen corn instead of canned and 1 t. of each cayenne and cumin. Also, stirred about 1 T. minced cilantro into dip after cooking. Served with tortilla chips. We loved it!"
"I have made this dip for many parties and everyone always asks for the recipe! I use only one can of corn and substitute a can of beans (usually cannellini beans) for the second can of corn."
