A tangier alternative to queso dip
This is from a site I follow, One Particular Kitchen.
It is tangier because cream cheese is used instead of cheddar. It also great if you have onion haters in the crowd as the corn gives it a bit of crunch without the aftertaste of onion.

The original recipe calls for name brands such as Rotel tomatoes and Green Giant corn, but I used store brand fire roasted tomatoes and white/yellow corn and it came out great.

Other plus is quick clean up because you mix everything in the baking dish and it is fairly cheap - I spent around $3, which was much less than any similar commercial dips available
