Zesty Corn Dip Recipe

This dip is zippy and delicious! I especially like it with Hawaiian bread. . .the hint of sweetness compliments the "heat" from the cayenne pepper. —Lisa Leaper-Shuck Worthington, Ohio

"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!"

MY REVIEW

"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."
