Embarrassingly Easy Corn Dip

This is one of those “non-recipe” recipes. It’s the perfect dip or appetizer when you need to throw something together that takes minimal effort and is always a crowd pleaser. Especially great for this time of year at the lake or any cookout.

Embarrassingly Easy Corn Dip

1 container of French Onion Dip from refrigerated section of the grocery

1 can of Rotel tomatoes

1 can of Mexi-corn*

1 can of white shoepeg corn*

*You can easily substitute two of either type of corn but I’ve found that I like the spice from the mexi-corn and the sweetness and texture of the shoepeg so I do one of each.

Drain and rinse corn and partially drain rotel (drained about 70%, if that makes any sense).

Combine in medium size bowl with French onion dip.

Refrigerate for several hours or overnight. Keeps for several days in air tight container, in the fridge.

Serve with Fritos Scoops. Per Ina, “How easy is that?” … While she would not approve of this recipe, we hope you do! Enjoy!

Whipped Feta 

This is one of the easiest best appetizers I have discovered in a long while. Last week I hosted a girl’s night and needed to whip something together with ingredients from my fridge and minimal effort.

Whipped Feta was created. And devoured. Success. I served with some of my favorite crackers from Trader Joe’s but also could be served with torn pieces of naan, spread on a crostini and topped with tomato or prosciutto or a basil leaf and black pepper. The possibilities for this concoction are endless. Please make this and let us know how you use it! 

Whipped Feta

1/2 Package of Feta Cheese

1/2 Package of Cream Cheese

2 Tbs. Olive Oil

Juice and zest of 1/2 of a lemon

Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Fresh Basil (optional, but suggested)

Combine two cheeses in food processor until they come together, add all remaining ingredients. Refrigerate until 15 minutes before serving, this needs time to get closer to room temperature but does not take long to do so.

Serve. Enjoy! Be prepared to give out this easy recipe – people will ask for it!
