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.

Salsa Corn Dip

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.

the added salt in this dish is also
found in the cheese...ALOT of it.
gak. :/

Yum + Easy = touchdown in the recipe box! I made it for a mtg today and it is delicious. If you like tweaks, here are mine: Trader Joe's Roasted Corn, lime, cumin, cilantro. I also had chopped peppers on hand, half a can of black beans, and some cooked barley. The last ones add calories, but are tasty.

Sounds delish...might have to rename it Seahawks Salsa Dip when we take the Superbowl home...again!!!! :)

I dont even need the cheese! Instead I throw in some black beans...Heaven

What would you suggest for a corn substitute?

@Katrina - I would suggest black beans. It will bring up the calories a bit but the nutritional value would still be high.

I suggest diced bell peppers in place of, or in addition to, the corn.

What about chopped avocado?

This looks great, Lisa. Thanks. I'll include beans as well, maybe top off with avocado. My book group will love it!

This looks really good. Will try. However, I wanted to comment on the Easy Creamy Tomato soup recipe you posted earlier. It is fantastic and so easy! Thank you. I added a little sugar to cut the intense tomato taste and some basil along with salt (lots of salt) and lots of pepper. Very easy, really good. Will be adding it to my soup recipes.

Mmm this looks yum! I'm not sure we have that type of salsa in UK (or Super Bowl:) but I guess I could just chop up some tomatoes and jalapeños? I've also learned what a scallion is - called a spring onion in the UK :)

Thanks Lisa

With hopes that one can find organic, non GMO corn. Corn has been one of the biggest victims of Monsanto getting into our food supply. yuk.
