Easy Mexican Corn Dip Recipe

This easy Mexican corn dip recipe is sponsored by Amaize sweet corn but all opinions expressed are my own.

With summer at it’s peak, I am thrilled to be seeing a vast array of seasonal produce arriving at the grocery store and farmer’s markets. Even my back yard garden is starting to yield a few hot weather crops. (only a few but I keep my fingers crossed!) Corn, tomatoes and onions are all abundant and inexpensive this time of year and with the Fourth of July coming up tomorrow I was looking for creative recipes to bring to the neighborhood potluck dinner. I came across several versions of Mexican corn dip which I thought would be a great snack to share with friends. I was sent a few ears of Amaize Sweet Corn to try out in this recipe which gives it a much fresher flavor than if I had used canned ingredients.

YEAH for Fresh Corn Recipes!

Amaize sweet corn is a rare variety of white sweet corn. What makes it stand out from other types of corn is that it has a crunch to it that remains even after cooking, unlike many other varieties of corn. Amaize sweet corn is bred using traditional methods through hybridization and is not genetically modified.

It took George Crookham and Bruce Hobdey 22 years to come up with this variety of corn which is only available from June through September. Amaize sweet corn is available here in my area at select Publix Super Markets in Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.
