Creamy Corn Dip with a hint of jalapeño that you can make in your crockpot? Who doesn’t need this in their life?!?
Welcome to Freaky Friday Spring Edition 2016! I am making creamy corn dip from Debi who is blogging great recipes and posts about a having a strong mind and healthy bodies over at Life Currents!
Freaky Friday is a secret blog hop. Each participant is randomly assigned to another blogger in the group, we pick a recipe from their blog, and make it. I was so lucky to get Debi because she posts some great appetizer recipes. Right up my alley! Debi has been a vegetarian for over 20 years who recently started eating sustainable seafood too. You should read about her journey on her blog because it is very compelling. She loves healthy foods, canning, and food waste reduction. I could take a few lessons from her! If you are interested in a specific ingredient, she has an Ingredient Research Tab at the top of her blog. How convenient!
Her reason for being a vegetarian is awesome!
“My short answer has always been that I went vegetarian in order to save the world. And, I add a little joke now and say that my husband says I’m a vegetarian just to be a pain in the neck.”
She also writes like me. Pen, pencil, paper. I have a ton of scribbled in notepads, journals, and a tiny book in my purse for when inspiration strikes me. And too many unfinished projects that made it to the computer and lie in wait… I think we are kindred spirits!
She is definitely speaking my language with this creamy corn dip for sure!
When looking for a recipe to make, I went straight for the appetizers. With so many to choose from, I had to narrow my search even more. Dips are where it’s at so I went there next and his amazing corn dip seemed to call to me on a deeper level. When I read that I made it in the crockpot, I was sold!
This Creamy Corn Dip is perfect for a party, not your average chicken and cheese dip, and you can make it in a crockpot! Add your ingredients and walk away.
This dip smells so good while it’s cooking that you are tempted to walk by and grab a spoonful. Do not do that as it is HOT! Trust me, I did it and my tongue is numb, but I did go back for another taste before putting the lid back on.
After an hour, I went back to give it a stir and had another few bites… Quality control is the toughest part of being a food blogger!
The original recipe calls for two hours of cooking, but my crock pot is weird and possessed, so after an hour and 15 minutes, it started to brown the corn around the edges. I removed my dip at 1 hour and 30 minutes with a few crunchy corn bits for added texture and started to eat mine. Shovel is more like it. I am so glad that I grabbed these blue corn chip BOWLS because now I can eat more at one time. I didn’t use the whole bag of chips because I piled so much dip in each bowl, so I guess I will have to make another batch…
