Cheesy Bacon Jalapeno Corn Dip Is Gonna Flip Your Lid!

I’ve said before and I’ll say it again…I love football and I love game-day gatherings at our house. Nothing fancy…just some family and/or friends to help balance my husband’s INTENSE love of the game.  And we always have great snacks!

I am known for a particular dip (a recipe from my mother-in-law if you can believe it) that everyone usually expects…but I cannot wait to try this one out!

Check it out!



It appears, that this wife (who also loves game-day) threw a bunch of stuff together and came up with this incredible dip. *I wish I could do that…just throw some things together…

  • 8 strips bacon
  • 2 (11 oz) cans whole kernel sweet corn, drained
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and minced
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Dash of cayenne pepper
  • ¼ cup fresh basil, chopped
  • Parmesan cheese, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a cast iron or ovenproof skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat until slightly crispy. Remove from heat and set on paper towels to absorb excess grease. Drain off all but 1 teaspoon of the grease remaining in the pan. We want to use the bacon grease to grease the pan and add more bacon flavor to the dip. Crumble the bacon.
  3. Combine the corn, jalapeno, cream cheese, mozzarella, salt, cayenne, half of the bacon, and half of the basil. Scoop into the skillet and bake for 20 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle with the remaining bacon and basil, and parmesan cheese to taste. Serve immediately.

NOTE: This feeds (4) – so for a larger group, you might want to double or even triple the recipe. 

Thank you, Host The Toast for this great recipe! I’m putting this bad-boy together this weekend! 🙂
