This dip was a BIG hit at our tailgate. Will be making it often. And yes it is addicting!
Hmmm, didn't think this dip was one to rave over. The cream cheese sets up very firm after it has chilled; hence many broken chips. Maybe could thin with milk or sour cream? Used 1 teaspoon cayenne and it was plenty spicy. Had a LOT leftover after party, so must not have been a big hit. Tasted better after a couple days. The corn/walnut is still something of an acquired taste though.
This dip is delicious and different. I brought it to a party and got a lot of compliments and requests for the recipe. All the flavors blend together and the corn and walnuts blend in and don't sort of jump out on their own. I did tweak the recipe..I added a blend of olive and corn oil and extra lime juice. I used smoky hot ancho chile powder and paprika instead of the red chile powder. I also added the spices slowly to taste, rather than all at once. Oh, and I used thawed frozen corn instead of canned (I think canned has an odd flavor) and I toasted the walnuts, and used my Kitchenaid mixer to blend it all together really well.
My family looked at me funny when I told them about the dip, but when they tried it they loved it. I was concerned about a whole tablespoon of red chile pepper, so I only added about 3/4 of it (cayenne) and it was still plenty spicy. Maybe those who said it was bland used chili powder instead. That certainly wouldn't give it enough kick. I will definitely make it again and have already shared the recipe!
I'm sorry but this wasn't very good. It makes a ton but then I had to throw out what wasn't eaten and that was a lot. I followed the recipe exactly but it certainly wasn't a hit. Too much onion and very "flat" tasting. Maybe we just aren't big fans of southwestern cuisine here in the south.
We had a heck of a time getting the cream cheese and lime juice to combine, but it ended up being well worth it. There's a little something missing, but I will continue to make this, as it was a big hit at my company get-together.
Didn't add walnuts, and it was still great!
This was a success at my company's pot luck. Many people enjoyed it and asked for the recipe. I used green onion to give the dish a bit more colour.
