  • 1 can of diced tomatoes, drained (15oz)
  • 1 4oz can of green chilies, drained
  • 1 jalapeno, seeds removed and chopped (optional)
  • 1/2 cup salsa, I used medium but use whatever you want
  • 1/4 cup corn (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp red pepper (1/2 tsp for less spice)
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese (cheddar) + 1/4 cup of shredded cheese for top of dip
  • Garnish options: chopped tomatoes, green onion, cilantro, jalapenos.


  1. Mix all ingredients by hand (except for garnish and cheese for top) in a mixing bowl.
  2. Transfer to a baking dish and bake for 20 minutes, remove and sprinkle 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese on top and bake for 5 more minutes or until melted.
  3. Remove and garnish with chopped tomatoes, cilantro, chopped green onion and jalapenos, or whatever combination of garnish you prefer. Serve with tortilla chips.
  4. Cover and refrigerate leftovers (you can heat it back up in the oven for 5-10 minutes the next time you want to eat it).
