Cheesy Chipotle Shrimp and Corn Dip



  • 3 ears corn, outer husks removed
  • Olive oil


  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • Salt and ground pepper, to taste
  • Olive oil


  • 1 small sweet onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives, plus more for garnish
  • Olive oil
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 2 ounces 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, room temperature
  • 6 ounces queso fresco, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup TABASCO® brand Chipotle Pepper Sauce
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground pepper
  • Tortilla chips


Prepare the corn: Heat a grill pan over medium high; drizzle corn with oil and place on pan. Cook 2-3 minutes per side until slightly charred. Remove from pan to cool. Once cooled, cut kernels from the cob.

Prepare the shrimp: Season shrimp with salt and pepper to taste. In an oven-safe skillet over medium heat, add shrimp; drizzle with oil and cook until slightly pink. Remove and set aside; discard any remaining liquid. Once cooled, coarsely chop; remove tails if necessary.

Prepare the dip: Preheat oven to 350°F. Return skillet to heat; add onion, garlic and chives. Drizzle with oil and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender. Add corn, shrimp, mayonnaise, 1 cup of Cheddar cheese, cream cheese, queso, TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce, lime juice, salt and pepper; mix until well combined. Add remaining 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese.

Bake for 20 minutes until cheese bubbles. Turn broiler on high; broil dip until slightly browned. Remove from oven; garnish with chives and serve with tortilla chips.

Makes 6-8 servings.

    Wow this looks like a perfect dip to try out my new chipotle Tabasco sauce in, especially with the cold front that's coming.
