  • 2 cups cooked corn kernels from about 2 grilled, roasted, or air-fried con on the cobs
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions white and green parts
  • 1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1 jalapeno seeded and diced
  • 1 tablespoon ranch dressing powder
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice to taste


  • Roast, grill, or air-fry the corn on the cob until the kernels are cooked, then when cool enough to handle, cut the kernels off the cob. Do this step ahead of time.
  • Mix the corn kernels with the mayonnaise, sour cream, green onions, cheddar cheese, red bell peppers, jalapeno, and ranch dressing powder.
  • Add a squirt of lime juice to brighten up the flavor, if desired.
  • Chill the dip for 30 minutes before serving, then dig in!


Chef Jenn's Tips

  • This dip can be made up to a day in advance; the flavors just get better!
  • Like your dip spicier? Use a serrano chili instead of a jalapeno.
  • Use a full-flavored cheese. Sharp cheddar is my favorite but Pepper Jack, Monterey Jack, marble, and even cotija cheeses will all work.
  • Sour cream and mayonnaise? Yes, you bet! I am not a big fan of mayo, but when you use half mayo and half sour cream, magical things happen. Trust me!
  • Garnish the top with a bit of shredded cheese, a sprinkle of chipotle powder, or some finely chopped cilantro.
