Creamy Corn Salsa Dip

Are you feeling a little mad over March? Is your bracket busted? I’m mad at March, too, but for a totally different reason. I’m mad at March because I can’t decide which recipe to make for the big basketball game this weekend. You see, my friends at BJs Wholesale Club presented me with a challenge. They asked me to share my favorite dip recipe and three of their recipes with all of you in honor of March Madness and ask you to vote for your favorite dip from the ‘final four’ dips shared in this post. How can you pick a favorite? I know, right? It’s such a hard choice which is why I am totally mad at March!

The first in the line up of delicious game-ready dips is the Pepper Jack and Corny Crab Dip.

White Bean Hummus
Ingredients
¼ cup chopped green onion
¼ tsp. kosher salt
¼ tsp. pepper
1 garlic clove, peeled
2 15-ounce cans of cannellini beans rinsed well and drained
¼ cup lemon juice
½ tsp ground cumin
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

Add remaining ingredients and process until mixture is smooth, scraping down sides as needed. If mixture seems to thick, add a little water at a time until desired, smooth hummus texture.

The final spot in this bracket battle of championship-worthy dips is my Creamy Corn Salsa Dip. I was inspired by this dip after purchasing a bag of Wellsley Farms Organic Sweet Corn.

I know it would be the perfect base for my creamy dip that features cream cheese, salsa, cheese and more. What makes this dip one of my favorites is that it is made entirely in the slow cooker and couldn’t be any simpler. You literally just dump everything in an walk away.

In just two hours, you have a nice batch of warm dip that goes perfect with crostini, chips, nachos … whatever you decide.
