This Smokey Bacon & Corn Dip is for you!

Smokey Bacon & Corn Dip #dip #poolside #sweetsavoryeats

I'm not sure if my garden is on steroids this year or WHAT, but my tomato and jalapeno plants are huge. Like taller than me. And I'm 5'9! It's a jungle in there, literally.  I've gotten lost once.

I fully know I should probably be pruning the darn things so it's not so branchy and leafy in there, but in case you haven't heard....we're in a pandemic and we are on month FIVE of my kids being home so therefore some things just haven't gotten done.

Many things have not gotten done.

It's pretty much our new normal.

Saying this, I've been picking around 10 jalapenos a day.  And since I'm a normal person and cannot ingest that many in a day I've gotten creative in different ways to use them.

This includes giving many away to neighbors and friends. I've also froze a big 'ol Ziploc of about thirty of those tasty devils. And of course salsa. There is always my blender salsa {please tell me you've made it by now}. 

And let's not forget this new dip.

Which is amazing.

And pretty much the best pool or lake side dip this side of the Mississippi.

I love a good dip which has flavors of Summer, which in this case is sweet corn and jalapenos.  It's not a Summer without some Iowa sweet corn! 

It brings a juicy sweetness to this dip and helps calm down the spicy flavor of the jalapenos {which when de-seeded, in my opinion isn't hot at all}. Then of course, there is bacon. Most dips are pretty lame without it. Add in the addition of cream cheese, sour cream and a ranch seasoning packet and this PANDEMIC CAN TAKE A HIKE.

We've been scooping this up with a classic Frito chip {the best scooper in my opinion}, but any sturdy tortilla chip will do. Or grab a butter knife and slather it away on your favorite cracker. Or grab a spoon and go to town?

Do whatever you want.

This dip tastes better the longer it sits, but even just one hour in the fridge after you whip it up is good too.  Take it to your next gathering or just make a batch for your easy Saturday night at home.  Make it an appetizer before dinner or dip your grilled chicken in it.

All ways are good and acceptable.

If you try this dip let me know! Tag me on all socials {@sweetsavoryeats} and I'll be sure to share the love.
