The Corn Dip

Well, it's actually Aunty J's Corn Dip (with thanks to Emeril), but Uncle Pookie loves it so much he has a special sound effect for eating it.

Jamie's Corn Dip

2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup small diced onion
2 tbsp minced jalapeños
1 1/2 tbsp minced garlic
3 cups canned corn kernels
1 small can diced green chiles
1/4 cup green onions, finely chopped (green parts only)
4 ounces cheddar cheese, grated
4 ounces Monterey jack cheese, grated
3/4 cup sour cream
3/4 cup mayonnaise
Salt and cayenne pepper to taste

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a sauté pan set over a medium high heat, add the butter. Once the butter is melted, add the onions and sweat for 3-4 minutes. Add the jalapeños and the garlic and sweat for 2 more minutes. Add the corn and sweat for 5-6 minutes.

2. Remove the corn, jalapeños, garlic and onion mixture to a mixing bowl. Add the remaining ingredients to the mixing bowl and blend well. Season the dip with salt and cayenne pepper.

3. Place the dip in a casserole dish, and bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until the dip begins to bubble. Serve with tortilla chips.
