Mexican Street Corn Dip

Last weekend was a big one for BBQ’ing. We went over to my sister-in-law’s house for the 4th of July and I brought my Blueberry Crumble Cream Pie as well as a giant bowl of fresh guacamole.

I had made a batch of this Mexican Street Corn Dip to take with me, but we ate it all before it even got to the party.
