  • 2 canned sweet corn drained note1
  • 1 cup sour cream substitute with Mexican crema or cream cheese
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp chili seasoning
  • ¼ cup Jalapeno deseeded and chopped
  • 1 tsp garlic salt or use as needed
  • 1 ½ cup shredded spicy chili cheddar cheese use any milder choice of cheese
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • cup green onions chopped
  • 1 tbsp cilantro chopped
  • ¼ cup Feta cheese crumbled note 2


  • To a large mixing bowl, add drained sweetcorn, sour cream, mayonnaise, finely chopped jalapeno, chopped green onions, cilantro, chili seasoning, garlic salt, lime juice, shredded cheese, and mix to combine. Taste and adjust seasoning according to preference.
  • Transfer the mixture to a serving bowl, crumble some feta cheese or cotija cheese on the top of the dip, cover with a plastic wrap (cling film) and chill in the fridge for up to 30 minutes for the flavors to develop. Alternatively, serve immediately with corn chips or tortilla chips if need be.
    Store in the fridge for up to 3 days in an airtight container.


Note 1: please make sure to use good-quality sweet corn for this recipe. Cheap canned corn is mostly dull in appearance and not as sweet as claimed on the can. It might be worthwhile spending extra cents or pence to get a good one. If readily available to you, use canned mexi corn, I recommend Green Giant sweetcorn for this recipe (not sponsored)
note 2: substitute feta cheese for cotija cheese for a more authentic taste or parmesan cheese.
