Jalapeño Corn Dip

This tastes suspiciously, surprisingly similar to the dip make with Velveeta and Ro-tel. Ro-tel would probably be quite good here, though it would create more of a salsa than a dip. Either way, this is SO good and is a nice way to avoid plastic cheese without sacrificing the general spirit of party food.

jalapeno dip
• 1 can creamed corn
• 2 Jalapeño peppers, minced
• 2 T minced onion
• 1/4 can black beans
• 1/2 c cheese (cheddar, monterey jack, Italian mix)
• 1 T sour cream

1. Over low heat, combine ingredients. Mix until warm, adding more of whichever ingredients you’d like to add. More jalapeños for spice, more cheese if you’re dangerous that way–whatever is most delicious :)
2. Serve with homemade corn tortilla chips* and a smorgasboard of Tex-Mex creations

*(Just cut a corn tortilla and fry in vegetable oil for a few seconds. Dry on a paper towel, then add sea salt. Wheat flour tortillas are good too, for a smoother flavor)
