It’s not a party without 7 Layer Dip. Am I right? It’s one of my favorite things to take to a party and is such a crowd pleaser. When I was asked to do the Halloween segment for ABC4’s Good Things Utah, I wanted to create something that could be made year-round but could also work for the holiday. The idea for this dip had been on my recipe list for a while and I thought this was a great opportunity to finally make it. Y’all know I couldn’t just make normal 7 Layer Dip! I had to put my own spin on it and the thing that was missing to me was corn. Then I thought of the flavors of street corn…lime, Tajin seasoning, queso fresco cheese…and the layers started to form. The GTU crew devoured it! Watch me make it here.
The cilantro lime corn layer is my favorite! The sour cream layer has a generous amount of Tajin seasoning and is so tangy and delicious. You can generally find Tajin in the Mexican food isle at your grocery store. This recipe makes a lot and can also be made in a 9×13 pan.
Now that New Year’s Eve is a few days away, I had to get this on my blog! A little late! Ha! For NYE, we always do a variety of appetizers. This year we are having a party for our local friends that will also double as a deployment farewell for my husband. My Street Corn Layer Dip is on the list to make for the party and I hope that it ends up at your parties as well! Happy New Year to you all! Thanks for supporting me and making my recipes!
Street Corn Layer Dip
1 packet taco seasoning
16 oz prepared guacamole
16 oz sour cream
3 teaspoons Tajin seasoning
16 oz salsa
32 oz frozen corn, thawed
1/2 bunch of cilantro, chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
10 oz package Queso fresco, crumbled
8 oz can sliced black olives, drained
Add Tajin directly to container of sour cream then mix well. Spread of top of guacamole. Pour and spread salsa on top for next layer.
In a medium-sized bowl, combine corn, cilantro, juice of 2 limes, and salt. Mix well then carefully spread on top of salsa layer.
Top with queso fresco then add olives to garnish. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until serving.
Note: As this sits, it does get “wet” because of the salsa. It still tastes great but if you want to avoid that, replace the salsa with pico de gallo or fresh chopped tomatoes.
