Ree Drummond has a thing for a tasty dip and it’s so easy to make. She revealed in a blog post on The pioneer woman website that her hot corn dip recipe is “positively to die for”.
Ree Drummond said her easy dip recipe was ‘to die for’
Drummond confessed his endless love for his hot corn dip recipe in a 2021 The pioneer woman blog post.
She explained, “Hot corn dip is one of those things that can make me completely embarrassed at parties, as if putting my leg behind my head to show off my residual ballet flexibility wasn’t embarrassing enough.”
She added, “This dip is truly to die for, and you can make it ahead and store it in the fridge before cooking if that suits your schedule better.”
While Drummond noted that you can do this in the summer, she has a version that also makes it a year-round option.
How to make Ree Drummond’s Hot Corn Dip Recipe
Drummond showed how to make his hot corn dip on an episode of The pioneer woman. She brushed vegetable oil on the cobs of corn, sprinkled them with salt and grilled them on a grill pan, then let them cool.
In a skillet, she melted butter and cooked onions, green and red peppers, diced jalapenos and garlic over high heat “to get as much color on the outside as possible.” While the vegetables were cooking, she cut the corn kernels off the cob.
“It’s a scrumptious dip,” Drummond explained. “There are so many flavors going on and I love that you don’t have to do it at the last minute. You can do it much earlier in the day.
The pioneer woman star let the vegetable mixture cool and made the base for the dip. She combined the mayonnaise, sour cream, and cream cheese in a bowl, then added the corn and vegetable mixture and tossed everything together. She added Monterey Jack cheese, two cans of diced green chiles, green onions, salt and pepper.
“It’s also a very versatile dip,” she explained. “You can use any kind of peppers, onions and vegetables you want. If you wanted to spice it up, you could add hot sauce, salsa – anything like that.
Drummond spread the dip in a baking dish, topped it with cheese and chili powder, and baked it at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 to 22 minutes.

Ree Drummond makes an ‘easy corn dip’ version
If fresh corn on the cob isn’t available, Drummond has an easy version that uses fire-roasted frozen corn.
The corn dip recipe comes together even faster than its original version. She combines the cream cheese, sour cream and mayonnaise in a bowl, then adds the corn, peppers, jalapenos, salsa, salt, pepper and cheese.
After mixing everything together, Drummond spreads the dip in a baking dish and sprinkles cheese on top. She bakes the dip in a 375 degree Fahrenheit oven for 20 minutes.
