Notes on Skinny Hot Corn Dip
- You can also use fire roasted frozen corn or grill your own corn (about 4-5 cobs of fresh corn) in replace of Mexicorn.
- I use Greek yogurt in this corn dip to make it healthier, but still creamy. Feel free to use half sour cream and half Greek yogurt for a richer, still delicious dip.
- I have added 1 teaspoon of cumin to this dip before and that added smokey flavor enhances the corn dip nicely. I have left it off the recipe for a more authentic corn dip.
