Hi everyone. I’m enjoying a lovely stay at my sister-in-law, Jodi’s, house in D.C. The best part about Jodi, besides being a model sister-in-law, is that she passed on a delectable recipe to me that her friend, Monika, gave her. Monika was quick to point out that her friend gave it to her which brings up the issue of recipe ownership. Who is the true recipe owner? For me, the credit goes to the person who gave it to me. What are your thoughts? Please share…
Jodi described this recipe as a spicy corn dip but I beg to differ. It tasted EXACTLY like one of my favorite foods (is dip a food?), Jalapeno Poppers. Because you are very nice, I will pass it on to you.
Jalapeno Popper Dip:
12 oz. frozen corn (I used canned)
8 oz. firm cream cheese, like Philadelphia Brand
4 TBS butter, thinly sliced (I used 6 by accident)
1 can jalapenos, sliced , plus a little juice- (I used 1/4-1/2 can because I thought the spice would overwhelm the other flavors)
Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a small casserole dish, lay down corn, put butter pats on top and cut up pieces of cream cheese. Top with jalapenos and a little juice. Bake until bubbly, maybe 20 minutes or so, and serve with pita chips or bread. Sooooo good! Eat sparingly, as it really has almost no nutritional value and might even kill you. Everything in moderation, as my mother always said…Enjoy!
