Corn and Bacon Dip

The recipe for this creamy appetizer or snack dip was given to me about 20 years ago by a friend. It becomes a favorite wherever I share it. People are constantly asking me for the recipe. Sometimes, I simply serve it with corn chips. -Carolyn Zaschak, Corning, New York

    I liked this, but my husband and daughter didn't. Took it to a potluck, some people ate it. Oh well...

    I was given this recipe years ago by a friend. Only difference is I add 1/2 cup chopped green onion and a bit more hot sauce. Everyone loves it and wants the recipe! I can't stay away from it! When all the food is on the table, I can hardly eat...I am to full on this addictive dip!

    I prepared this recipe today for the first time! It IS THAT TASTY! I did omit the cream cheese! I used about 1 cup French onion dip instead of the sour cream! I also used 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper and instead of actual cooked, crumbled bacon, I used 1 cup of Hormel prepared crumbled bacon-it comes in a package! I kept the kernel corn and mayonnaise the same amount & the 2 minced garlic cloves. I also bought a bag of corn chips to go with this dip! I'm planning to share it at my hospital volunteer job! Thank you for sharing this recipe! This week's "Cook's Corner" challenge was appetizers, so this was one of 3 recipes I used! delowenstein

    This is a wonderful recipe! It's hard to leave it alone when you walk by it in the kitchen! I add just a little more hot sauce to give it a tiny kick. Very good!

    I have made this recipe so many times that I have it memorized! It has become a family tradition for us to have this dip on holidays and birthdays. When I walk in the door, my family asks where the corn bacon dip is!!! It is a dip that people aren't sure about until they taste it, then they want the recipe!

    This recipe has become very popular in my family and is constantly requested for parties and bbqs. I usually substitute in low fat cream cheese and light sour cream and mayo to lower the calories a bit. The flavor is always good.
