Cheesy Corn Bean and Bacon DIp

Are you watching the Super Bowl on Sunday? Or maybe you plan to just eat while everyone else watches? I am guilty of the second one.

Either way you NEED this Cheesy Corn Bean and Bacon Dip at your party.

Cheesy Corn Bean and Bacon Dip

I am not going to tell you this is a healthiest dip recipe out there but it sure does taste great. Imagine dipping a tortilla chip into warm, cheesy corn, beans, diced chilies topped with crispy bacon, fresh green onions and diced tomatoes. It is one heck of a bite!

While a lot of the recipes I share are nutritious sometimes I feel like taking a quick jog off of my usual path to share something indulgent.  This year the Super Bowl is about the commercials and the food for me (since the Packers won’t be playing in the game).

Cheesy Corn Bean and Bacon Dip

The three things that takes this dip to the next level are the warm cheeses, the fire roasted diced chilies that add a lot of flavor and the crispy Jones Dairy Farm bacon. I don’t know about you but I am a sucker for Mexican style dips that are warm and cheesy and this one will not dissapoint.
