i’ve decided to start a collection. what’s going to be in my collection you ask? well food stuff of course. more specifically, awesome measuring cups. why do i want to start this new collection? well because these owl measuring cups from urban outfitters are freaking super adorable. and i really really really want them. really anything awesome for the kitchen should be bought for this new collection. like these bowls. or this cookie jar (seriously someone should buy me this like now). ohhh look at this butter dish! or who can resist this creamer?
here’s the other thing about my new fantasy collection… it would be like a prop closet for the awesomest photos to be featured here. i mean it’s a win win right? who wouldn’t love to see this corn dip served out of a fish? i mean i personally think it would make it that much yummier…
ok well there’s not too much that could make this dip yummier. i mean for starters it’s like crack for me. like badly. i could eat an entire bowl of this. and by bowl i mean like a GIANT bowl. my friend chela makes this for get togethers and i think she should just start making me a personal bowl. for real. and i’m not the only one. i asked her for this recipe for a crawfish bowl and i’m pretty sure that all of it was gone before the first pot was pulled. in fact, i’m almost positive it was gone before everyone got to the boil.
chela’s corn dip
- 2 cans sweet corn
- 2 cans fiesta/mexican corn
- 2 c shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 fresh jalapeno, chopped
- 1/2 c pickled jalapeno slices, chopped
- 3 green onions, chopped
- 4 oz cream cheese, slightly melted
- 2 tbs mayo
- 2 tbs sour cream
- 1 clove garlic, chopped
- cajun seasoning to taste
- combine all ingredients and stir well to combine. let sit in the fridge for at least an hour or overnight for the flavors to meld together.
- serve with your favorite chips – chela (and i) would recommend fritos scoops or multigrain tostitos.
oh and in full disclosure over how much of this i can eat…. let’s just say that this was dinner one night. and although i think it would be perfect for a 4th of july party, i won’t be making it. because i might not share it with anyone else. for real. think i’m exaggerating? make it and you let me know if you could walk away.
