      I’m sure you could, but it would change the flavor a bit. The dip is a bit spicy, but definitely not overly so. 🙂

    This dip is good. I will use 1 cup pepper jack cheese next time to add some kick. It’s very mild as written, but still tasty. Might also cook onion first.

    I am a very picky eater…this is delish!! I made for a church gathering…Every bit was gone, so I made my own dish of it….So good!!!

    • Sara @MomEndeavors says

      Yes! You could totally make this ahead – I’d say the night before or morning of and then refrigerate until baking!

    Loved this recipe…so did everyone else who devoured it! I did change it a bit by adding fresh garlic and fresh red bell peppers for color. I reserved a bit of the corn, chopped it fine and roasted it to add to the top with a bit of green scallions.
