In case you live under a rock, the Super Bowl was last Sunday.
…and my favorite team in the whole world WON! I’m still on cloud nine four days later.
I made a dozen different snacks for a Super Bowl party I went to and along with the Andes cookies I baked, this super simple dip was a real crowd pleaser. In fact, it may have been the best thing I made that day!
Guess what? It’s only FIVE ingredients! FIVE!
- 3 jalapeños, diced
- 8 slices of bacon, chopped
- 16 oz. bag frozen sweet kernel corn
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Fry bacon in large skillet until crispy. Remove bacon to plate with paper towels. Discard 1 tsp. bacon drippings.
Skill Level: Incredibly easy. Again, the recipe is only five ingredients! This would be a great recipe for a new cook to take to a party. It’s completely effortless.
Flavor Profile: You’ve got a little bit of everything here, and it all depends on the type of corn you go for. I always grab sweet kernel corn, because I love sweet and salty things. Also, the smaller a Jalapeno is, the spicier it will be…unless that’s just an old wives tale.
The rendered fat from the bacon + sweet corn + spicy peppers + creamy cheese & sour cream=deep flavor profile.
Versatility: Probably best to not mess with the original recipe. You might be able to forego the cheese to make it a little less fatty, or the bacon to make it vegan, but it will mess with the flavor profile.
End Score: A-. Only because I should’ve made more.
