College football season may be winding down (unless you’re fortunate enough to pull for a team on track for the National Championship).  However, there’s still a pro season in full force with plenty of games left to watch until February. This hot and spicy corn dip recipe is perfect for any football-watching party you may have, or any other excuse you need to get together with your friends and family.

 Years ago a friend of mine made this recipe for our Bunko group. I could hardly contain myself it was so good, and she agreed to share the recipe. Many years later I’m still making it, and it’s one of my absolute favorites of all time. It’s heavenly when it’s served hot from the oven, but it tastes equally delicious when it’s at room temperature – which is what makes it so perfect for tailgating and parties.

I’m confident you’ll love it too. Not only is it tasty, but it’s something different besides the usual sausage cheese dip everyone likes to make (which I love too). Plus you can adjust the spice level, depending on your personal preference. Hot and Spicy Corn Dip only takes 5 simple ingredients, all of which are easily found at any grocery store. Once you combine everything, the oven does the rest.

 You’ll find other hot and spicy corn dip recipes too, but most of them are made with cream cheese. This recipe uses a blend of Monterey Jack and Romano. It seems like an odd combination at first, but trust me – it works. Not only can the spice level be adjusted, but you can amp up the amount of cheese too if you like.

 When you pull this spicy, cheesy goodness out of the oven, you’ll love it served with corn chips or your favorite tortilla chips. There’s really no wrong way to eat this, so dig in and enjoy, and don’t forget to bring this to your next party!
