Chipotle Mexican Street Corn Dip with Goat Cheese

I was craving Mexican street corn that I had during a recent trip to Puerto Vallarta, so I came up with this fabulous dip. It blends the traditional profile of the popular street food with updated flavors for a tasty twist. —Joseph A Sciascia, San Mateo, California

Test Kitchen tips
  • The chipotle peppers, along with the cumin and chili power, add a smoky heat to this creamy dip.

      This takes some prep but is well worth the effort! Took it to Friday night cards and came home with a empty bowl, everyone loved it! This could easily be doubled as served as a sidedish!! Thanks for a great recipe!!!
