First of all, let me say thank you to all of you for the kind “welcome back”. It’s nice to finally be back to the blogging world again and even nicer to know that I was missed while I was gone. Moving right along, I thought that y’all would enjoy a good dip recipe to share at your Superbowl party this weekend. Don’t tell me you’re not having one. The Superbowl is to dips like Christmas is to candy…you just have to make it!
This is the first recipe that I ever came up with on my own. I ate some corn dip at a party and since I was just in junior high school at the time, I thought it’d be weird to ask my friend’s mom for the recipe. So I went home and tried to make some dip myself. Turns out this dip is absolutely nothing like the dip that I had at the gathering, but it’s SO MUCH BETTER! This dip makes a gigantic bowl, so if you don’t want all of it feel free to half it. You can serve it with tortilla chips or corn chips, and honestly you can’t go wrong with either. Heck I’ve been known to eat it straight off the spoon…and honestly I have no shame for doing so. Hope y’all enjoy!

Ranch Corn Dip
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream
1 pack dry Ranch dressing mix (or 3 tablespoons if you buy the bulk package)
2 cans whole kernel corn, drained
1 can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
2 cups grated Cheddar cheese
In a small mixing bowl, stir together sour cream and mayonnaise until combined. Add Ranch dressing mix, mix together until completely distributed throughout the sour cream and mayonnaise mixture. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the corn, pinto beans, and cheese. Pour in the creamy mixture, stirring well to combine (you may or may not need all of the Ranch mixture, depending on how creamy you like your dip*). Store in the refrigerator for a couple of hours to allow time for the flavor to maximize.
*Note: If you have leftover Ranch, it’s great served with raw, fresh vegetables.
