Imagine sitting poolside sipping on a cool beverage, watching kids splash around in the pool, and snacking on a flavorful dip made with fresh corn, cilantro, cotija, and more.

Sounds like a pretty good scenario, right? Especially since it’s still frigid in Michigan. That dip you’re snacking on has all the flavors of Mexican corn on the cob except without the mess of having to eat the corn off the cob, cheese falling off (THE WORST), and stuff getting stuck in your teeth. Plus, this way you get chips and get to share with your friends and family. Might I add that it’s also perrrrrfect for Cinco de Mayo…which just so happens to be today? (Also, this white queso in the slow cooker — made for Cinco!)

It’s the party perfect dip and I just know it’s going to become a summer favorite of yours. In the dip, I included fresh corn (you may also used drained canned corn), finely diced red bell peppers, Old El Paso green chiles, tons of cilantro, lime juice, cotjia cheese, chili powder, and green onions. I kept it “skinny” by using Greek yogurt as the base to hold it together with just a touch of mayonnaise made with olive oil to lend its smooth texture.

All you do is mix it up in a bowl and serve! It’s so easy to make! I love it on its own (seriously, it’s so good!), on chips (obviously), and also on a salad! All you need is lettuce, a grilled chicken breast and this dip and you have an instant salad!
