Hot Corn Dip Tips

Can you use fresh or frozen corn instead of canned to make hot corn dip?

Yes! You can use frozen corn (or fresh corn off the cob) to make hot corn dip if you don't have canned! Use 2 cups of kernels if you go that route. While you can swap out the type of corn, we don't recommend you swap out the mayo. Reduced-fat or fat-free mayonnaise won't work in this recipe, so stick with regular full-fat mayo.

What other cheese can you use to make hot corn dip?

While this recipe calls for Monterey Jack cheese, you can use cheddar or Pepper Jack instead. While you can definitely swap out the Monterey Jack, we recommend you stick with the Parmesan in the recipe. Here are some recipes to make with every kind of cheese—or more specifically, some Monterey Jack cheese recipes if you've got some left over after making this hot corn dip.

What else can you serve with hot corn dip instead of tortilla chips?

If you don't want to serve your hot corn dip with tortilla chips, consider serving it with corn chips, pita wedges, or bread cubes instead. If you liked this hot corn dip, try more of our best dip recipes to make for a crowd.
