There’s nothing quite like the combination of sweet grilled corn and gooey cheese.

Nothing, folks.

I’ve been making cheesy Fire Roasted Corn Dip for years and every single time I make it, close friends oooh and ahhh over it, as if they’ve never had it before. Even Lt. Dan will say, “Babe, you’ve got to make this again. It’s SO GOOD!”

This statement is always followed by a sigh, eye roll, and the response, “You do realize I’ve made this dip for you about one hundred times.”

He never believes me.

There’s just something special about this Fire Roasted Corn Dip. Every bite seems like the first.

I think I hear Foreigner playing in the distance…

Fresh Corn

My Fire Roasted Corn Dip starts with fresh sweet corn gently charred on the grill.

Yield: 8-12 servings

Fire Roasted Corn Dip


  • 3-4 ears fresh Florida Sweet Corn
  • 1 small onion, peeled and sliced into rings
  • 1 small red bell pepper
  • 1 cup cooked chorizo
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
  • ½ pound shredded spicy pepper cheese, like habanero cheddar or pepper-jack
  • ¼ cup chopped green onions


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degree F. Preheat the grill to high heat. Remove the cornhusks and corn silk, and place the fresh Florida Sweet Corn, onion slices and red bell pepper on the grill. Grill the corn and bell pepper for 8-10 minutes, turning every 2 minutes until all sides are slightly charred. Grill the onion slices for approximately 3 minutes per side.
  2. When the veggies are cool enough to handle, cut the corn off the cob. Then chop the onions and pepper, removing the pepper seeds.
  3. In an 8 X 8 inch baking dish or one-quart soufflé dish, mix all the ingredients together until well combined. Bake for 10-15 minutes until the edges are bubbly. Serve warm with tortilla chips.

Notes: If you don’t own a grill you can achieve similar results by searing the veggies in a large cast iron skillet over high heat. Make sure the skillet is piping hot before starting.

    This looks like an amazing dip to surprise friends coming over for a movie or game night! When I read the title, I thought corns would be pureed or something, but this one is a unique dip with roasted corns! Love all the roasted veggies! Combining them with cream cheese and cheddar makes it a heavenly dip!

    This recipe is wonderful. Unfortunately, I am not buying any corn that is not guaranteed GMO free – and most is not, even in Florida.

    Over the moon over your Fire Roasted Corn Dip, Sommer! Love that chorizo is in it, too, to make it especially tasty. The only thing that seems missing is some fresh cilantro, for this girl. And, I would serve your dip with Late July® Organic tortilla chips. (Available at Whole Foods Market.) If you have not tried them, you MUST! Addicting. Sea Salt Seashore, Sweet Potato, Summertime Blues (blue chips) and Mild Green Mojo (green chiles with cheese & lime) are our faves. They also have a Dude Ranch (ranch flavored). Each made with all-natural organic ingredients. Thanks for this great recipe for Cinco de Mayo and summertime entertaining. Pinning! xo

    Jill A — April 25, 2013 @ 6:55 pm

    This looks amazing. One quick question – do you recommend using Spanish cured chorizo; sliced or a mexican chorize that you cooked and sliced?


    • Sommer — April 25th, 2013 @ 7:03 pm

      Hi Jill, I used the uncooked Mexican chorizo and browned it in a skillet, but you could definitely chop up the Spanish variety!


      • Jill A — April 26th, 2013 @ 6:15 am

        Thanks! I’m going to give it a try this weekend.

      • Jill A — May 1st, 2013 @ 10:20 am

        I’m eating it now. Super Delicious! I actually made it for my son’s teachers but kept a small ramiken for myself. I roasted a couple of jalapenos and chopped them up too. Thank you Sommer.
