  • Inspired by some of our favorite corn dishes this dip is almost like Mexican street corn meets bacon cheddar dip. So good together!
  • It uses ingredients I almost always have on hand.
  • Prepare ahead and bake right before serving.
  • Hearty dip recipes like this one can be served hot or cold! Plus, it can be made up to 3 days in advance and the flavors just blend even more!

Serve with celery sticks, tortilla chips, Fritos, toasted crostini, or bagel chips.

Prep Time 10 minutes

Cook Time 28 minutes

Total Time 38 minutes

  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 3 cups corn kernels thawed or drained
  • ½ cup red bell pepper diced
  • 4 ½ ounces mild green chilies diced , 1 can drained
  • ½ cup bacon crumbled
  • ¼ cup cilantro chopped
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 ½ cups cheddar cheese shredded, divided use
  • cooking spray

For Garnish (optional)

  • corn kernels
  • crumbled bacon
  • red peppers diced
  • cilantro chopped
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and spay an 8×8 baking pan with cooking spray.

  • In a large bowl, cream together the cream chese and sour cream.

  • Add corn kernels, red bell pepper, green chilies, bacon, cilantro, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper to the bowl.

  • Stir until all ingredients are thoroughly combined and spread the dip into the prepared baking pan.

  • Sprinkle the remaining ½ cup shredded cheese on top.

  • Bake for 30 minutes or until dip is bubbly and cheese is melted.

  • Garnish with additional corn, peppers, bacon and cilantro if desired.

  • Serve immediately with tortilla chips.

The cream cheese should be very soft so that it can be whisked together with the sour cream. You could also use a mixer if you prefer, but in this case it’s not critical that the cream cheese be completely smooth since it will melt when it goes into the oven. 

This dip is fairly mild, but if you prefer to make it spicy, use a can of diced jalapenos instead of the green chilies.

Make this corn dip ahead of time for game day or get-togethers. You can store the uncooked dip in the fridge for up to 24 hours before baking.
