Zesty Corn Dip

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

    This is always a hit at parties. I have made this several times and someone always asks for the recipe. I often serve with tortilla chips instead of bread cubes and they work well with this dip.

    I used the lowest amount of spices and it was perfect. Everyone enjoyed and asked me for the recipe.

    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!

    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.
