You will need:

  • 16 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 lime
  • 1 jalapeño pepper (or ½ green bell pepper — your choice), diced
  • 2 tablespoons purple onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ cup cilantro
  • Hot sauce
  • 2 cans of corn (I used 1 yellow and 1 white)
  • 4 ounces feta cheese
  • 2 cups pepper Jack cheese, shredded

Top your finished corn dip with more cilantro, feta, and hot sauce, then serve it with tortilla chips!

Did you know: Rolling a lime on the counter loosens up all the pulpy juice, so be sure to roll it before squeezing!
