Mexican Corn Dip AKA Magically Delicious Dip

Many, many, MANY moons ago (in 2008! Before my first child was even born!) I shared this recipe for Mexican Corn Dip. Works for Me Wednesday was still being hosted at Rocks in My Dryer, George W. Bush was still president, and I had infinite amounts of time to sleep where I wasn’t being woken up at 4 a.m.

This recipe has gained a reputation among my friends, especially Amanda, as the “Magically Delicious Dip.” For no good reason, it is SO awesome. The perfect combination. A way to ingest three kinds of corn at once.

Since I am guessing most of you weren’t reading my blog in 2008, I thought I would share the recipe again. You’ll want to make this dip for every party ever. It’s gluten-free, it’s creamy, it’s a little spicy—and you can amp up the spice depending on which Rotel you use. Go for it. You won’t regret it!

Mexican Corn Dip AKA Magically Delicious Dip


  • 1 can Rotel (I use “milder,” because I am a wimp)
  • 1 can yellow corn
  • 1 can white corn
  • 1 block cream cheese (8 oz.)
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder (optional)


Drain the cans of corn. Plop everything into a small baking dish. I use a 2-cup slow cooker so that I can keep it warm at the party. Either microwave for a couple minutes or bake for 30 minutes at 350 F. Stir all together to combine and voila: corn dip. Serve with tortilla chips.

    • Yeah, I’m having an issue. When I changed my recipe index, I needed to pick a featured image for recipe posts. And with my template, it puts the featured image in the header. Working on getting it changed but it’s a bigger issue than I had hoped!!

  5. One of the supervisors at the ExEd office makes this for every single staff lunch we have. We call it “corn crack” and everyone stands around the table and eats it straight out of the bowl. Nice to have the recipe so I can make it myself now!
