A few weeks back I shared a vegan recipe for cheesy corn dip and since then many of you have reached out wondering if you can make a non-vegan version. The good news is that you absolutely can and it's seriously delicious.  I made it a few weeks ago to watch football with my cousins and we were literally eating it with a spoon at the stove and shoveling it on to chips, veggies, grilled chicken, pretty much anything that we could dip into the bowl.

The key players in this recipe are cheddar cheese, corn, rotel tomatoes (or any diced tomatoes with green chilies), garlic, and a jalapeno.  I mean with those ingredients, there really isn't anyway it could be bad, right? The good news is that this dip is surprisingly diet friendly with around 100 calories per 1/4 cup but tastes indulgent, cheesy, and delicious.
