The Easiest, Healthiest Dip For the Big Game
January 29, 2015 12 Comments
I couldn’t go into this weekend without making one more dip. Hey, when the Patriots win, I want to be celebrating in style.
This is crazy easy. My 10 year old daughter can make this and will eat it too.
I saw a version of this dip on the Weight Watchers website and I almost couldn’t believe it would be good. It is called “Fiesta Dip” and it features fresh salsa that you can buy at the supermarket. I find this salsa in the produce section and I buy the mild version.
The fresh salsa is a supermarket brand and has no salt added to it and a very clean ingredient list.
This dip is a whole lotta vegetables and a wee bit of cheese. It works because the salsa and corn are so flavorful that a ton of cheese isn't necessary.
You have no excuses for not making this dip. Do NOT simply open a jar of salsa with chips – this dip is SO much better.
Fiesta Dip Recipe
Makes 10 – ½ cup servings
1-16 ounce bag of frozen corn
1-16 ounce container of fresh salsa
1 cup grated pepper jack cheese
1 chopped scallion (optional)
Thaw corn via package directions. Mix corn and salsa in a small bowl and spread into a 9 –inch pie plate or other type of serving dish that is relatively flat. Top with grated cheese and heat in the microwave on high for 2 minutes until cheese is melted.
Top with scallion bits and serve.
