Tried & True Tuesday ~ Fiesta Corn Salsa

For this week's Tried & True, I'm sharing a great Fiesta Corn Salsa.  This delicious recipe is from my good friend, Sandi - she always has the best food at her get-togethers.  Remember the Homemade Sourdough Ranch Pretzels and Texas Caviar shares?  Those two were from her.  

This past weekend, she and her husband hosted a fun barbecue.  Knowing there was going to be some good food, I was smart and brought my camera.  They did not disappoint.  Great food all around, from drinks to dessert.  The kids and adults swarmed this salsa. SWARMED!  Sandi had to refill the bowl two times. The recipe makes a lot, so it's a perfect appetizer for large gatherings.
  


Lucky me,  I snagged the recipe and get to share it with all of you.

Fiesta Corn Salsa

Ingredients
  • 3 cans Fiesta Corn or Mexi Corn, drained (11 ounce cans) 
  • 3/4 cup Mayonnaise (regular or light)
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (use finely shredded)
  • 1 cup Sour Cream (regular or light)
  • 1 small bunch Green Onions, chopped (approximately 1/2 cup)
  • 1 small bunch Cilantro, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
Optional
Add some fresh lime juice, a can green chiles and/or a few chopped jalapenos for extra kick.

Directions
Mix all of the ingredients together.  Chill in fridge for a couple of hours.  Serve with your favorite tortilla chips or Fritos. 


Big shout out and thank you to Sandi! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Cheers!

i love this dip! i added 1 lemon juiced to mine and half old cheddar and half jalapeno cheddar...i also added chili salt and pepper to mine. the only thing i'd do differently is add some cream cheese so it sets better.. i found mine to be a bit liduidy
