Slow Cooker Corn and Jalapeno Dip
Simply throw everything in the crockpot for the easiest, most creamiest dip ever. It’s so good, you’ll want to eat it with a spoon!
I think it’s safe to say that I’m a bit obsessed with dip, whether it’s guacamole, spinach and artichoke dip, enchilada dip, queso dip… the list goes on. But when you can make the creamiest of all dips right in your slow cooker – well, that may just be the best dip of all time.
No, but really, you cannot go wrong with a cream cheese based dip with melted pepper jack cheese, salty Parmesan, sweet corn kernels and jalapeños for just a hint of heat. For extra spiciness, feel free to add in more jalapeños to taste. You can even take it one step further and top this baby off with crumbled bacon but either way, you’ll want to eat this dip with a spoon. Who needs chips anyway?

This looks damn delicious – sorry I had to do that 🙂
This recipe looks amazing! Love slow cooker recipes 🙂
The Macadame. xx
It’s your creamed corn and your jalepeno popper pizza merged into one, in dip form! LOVE it! And it’s so you. The recipe, the images and lighting, gosh so so pretty!
Who knew bacon and corn could be so damn delicious looking? (see what I did there. Cheesy? yep.)
But, not as cheesy as this dip looks….3 kinds of cheesy plus corn plus bacon AND spice? I love you. And this. Pinned!
This looks amazing! What size crock did you use? I have a 3 qt and a 5 qt….
I need to know the same thing.
Either size will work!
Would it fit in a 1.5 quart??
It may be a little too small.
We are having a Mexican Fiesta at church Sunday night so this will go great! Thanks for sharing this recipe.
Thank you for the nice recipe. Have a Wonderful Weekend!
I would be in MAJOR trouble with this…..
This dip looks incredible! Totally bookmarking and trying this, great job 🙂
This looks brilliant – what a combination! 😀
Oh my – my mouth watered! It looks fabulous.
Ok, I am now very, very hungry! This dip sounds amazingly delish! Pinning!
Delish! I’ll take a big bowl of this with a spoon, please. Pinning!
You so cannot go wrong with melted cheese, cream cheese and corn. Love this dip!! The boy is sitting next to me and saw it and he said “make that happen”. Your pictures have that effect 🙂
Oh my gaahhhhhh! I love this so much, Chung-Ah!
So I’m wondering why this needs to be used only as a dip–looks like a potential side dish to me!
You can certainly serve this as a side dish as well!
And that will be happening tonight! I’m grilling two fillets, and I plan to serve this on the side. Looking forward to something new!
I made this tonight as a side dish. It was delicious, but needed minor tweaking to adapt it from a dip to actual food, if you get my drift. I had exactly halved every ingredient in the recipe because it was just my husband and me eating and we’re not big leftover people. I ended up adding more corn so the consistency was thicker. I also used green onion instead of chives, and ended up adding maybe three or 4 tablespoons all together. And the bacon in this recipe is wonderful! I will add more next time. We both enjoyed this dish, and it went very well with the fillets. A keeper for sure!
I don’t even know where to begin to express my sincere joy and excitement about this dip… like, everything I love in one. Corn. bacon. Jalapeno. Oh my freaking goodness I can’t wait to make it!
Holy yum, I want this now! It looks so good!
This looks so amazing. I like that it’s a potential party food I can have cooking while I am doing other things to get ready.
Making it today even though it is St. Patrick’s Day!! ( I think he’ll be pleased!! )
My husband and I are loving ALL your recipes! Keep creating…..
This was a hit on our snowy day at work! Since I got to go in late to work, I went ahead and packed up my slow cooker and can opener before heading out. It maybe ten or fifteen minutes to grab the ingredients at a grocery store (I substituted strips of bacon for a bag of bacon bits) and I was on my way. I cut up the jalapeños and cream cheese– threw everything into the crock pot and people were digging in before the two hours was up!! Thank you for such an easy and yummy comfort food. 🙂
Can someone give me ideas of what you used for dippers? Can’t wait to try this dip, we camp with about 6 families and sometimes we do a appetizer night. And this will definitely be a hit when football season comes back and we have our football Sundays
We used tortilla chips and loved it!
Try Tostitos Scoops. They stand up to the heavy corn dip and keep it all on the chip.
This is one tasty looking corn dip!
For the crockpot jalapeño corn dip
Can I double the recipe?
If so, will I need to adjust the time?
How much time?
Yes, you can certainly double the recipe. You may or may not need to adjust cooking time as needed – I cannot give you a specific guideline as I have not doubled the recipe myself.
Oh man, this looks freaking fantastic!! I would say that this is perfect for Cinco de Mayo, but there’s no way I’m waiting nearly a year to make this…yum!!
Corn with Jalapeno, What a combination for sure my family will love this. I am writing down Corn and Jalapeno in my grocery list for next week shopping.
How would you modify this if you wanted to make it in a hurry and not in a crock pot? Would you just put everything on the stovetop and mix together? Want to make it tonight, but won’t be home in time to wait several hours for it to be done.
Unfortunately, this is a recipe particularly for the slow cooker. I recommend using your best judgement to convert it to the stove-top method.
Recipe looks delicious! Can fresh or frozen corn be used in lieu of canned corn (I’m a midwest girl and canned corn is a sin around here!) How much should I use? Will using frozen corn make the dip too watery? Any suggestions would be helpful – thanks!!
You can use fresh cooked corn in lieu of canned corn. I do not recommend using frozen corn as it will bring in unwanted liquid to the dish.
Great! This may be a novice question, but can I just grill the corn as if eating it on the cob and then cut if off and throw it in the crock pot? Or cut it off and let it do all its cooking in the crock pot (no grill)?
Yes, go ahead and grill the corn prior to adding to the slow cooker.
I have made this recipe twice and both times I have had rave reviews from it. It is simple and good. It is so easy I cooked it in a crock pot in a truck going down the road.
I made this for a baby shower on the weekend and everyone LOVED it. It was so easy and delicious. Leftovers were consumed by my husband as a side dish.
I was wondering what size crock pot everyone used. I just bought a new in box 2 qt. (small) at a Goodwill store and I have a regular sized one–oval probably 5-6 qt. size. I would love to use my small one, but don’t know how much this actually yields. Any help in crockpot size would be much appreciated.
Nancy, I recommend using the larger slow cooker. You can also halve the recipe if you would like to use the smaller one.
Hi there! I see this recipe yields 6 servings, but I’m not seeing a serving size. I plan on making this for a party and wanted to make sure I have enough.
Giana, I don’t have an exact measurement of how much each serving size is. Please use your best judgement on serving for a party – this recipe is very easy to double or even triple.
I’m thinking that frozen corn can be used it it’s pan fried a bit first to draw out the extra moisture. Can’t wait to try this recipe!! Love this site.
That looks AMAZING. I need to plan a party so I can make this for my friends!
My daughter made this and it is fabulous, and yes, would make a wonderful side dish.
How long would this stay good? like how long could you keep it with it out going off?
This can be stored in the fridge for 2-3 days.
I’ve made this three times now and it has been a huge hit each time! I have to admit that I don’t exactly *measure* the cheese and throw in a little extra! ;o) And I’ve been too lazy to do the bacon, which I’m sure sends it over the top…but it’s seriously so good as is! Thanks for the recipe – it’s a keeper for sure!
This is the best dip I’ve ever made. Sweet corn, spicy japalenos and pepper jack…. My new “last meal”! Thanks for the GREAT recipe.
How about subbing a drained 4-oz. can of diced green chilies for the jalapeños?
That sounds amazing! I should actually try that next time 🙂
Thank you for your prompt response! I’m going to try this on Friday!
Did you try this with the chilies? Was it good?
Does anyone know about how many this recipe serves? I need to make it for a group of about 30 and am wondering if I should double the recipe!? Please help!
Lauren, this recipe yields about 6-8 servings.
How much is each serving? Can this serve a big party of 20+ or do you suggest doubling it?
I recommend doubling or tripling as needed.
Do we have to change how long to cook it then!
I love corn food. I could live off snack and this dip looks awesome and authentic.Thanks
Just a note to say this was a HUGE hit at a holiday party I attended tonight. I doubled the recipe. So easy to make! I used Tostitos Scoops, but I bet Fritos Scoops would also be good. As would those little toasts they sell for appetizers. Thank you for this recipe! Everyone asked for a copy, so I’ll send them to you!
Linda, what size crock pot did you use? Thank you!
Thinking cook bacon -throw all together am at work -should work for 1130 party
Big hit at Christmas party. Doubled the recipe. Didn’t have enough parmeson but it was still delish!
Um…this looks INCREDIBLE! I made my poor husband go to the store tonight (2 days before Christmas) and buy all the ingredients so I could bring it to our Christmas Eve festivities! But…I’m 12 weeks pregnant so I’m hoping I don’t eat it all before it leaves the house!
Took this tonight to our annual Christmas Eve Taco Bar and it was AMAZING. There was absolutely none leftover. Will definitely make this again!
This was so amazing!! One tip though….it’s much better with regular cream cheese…the low fat changes the flavor. I’ve made it twice first with regular cream cheese and reg sour cream and the second with low fat cream cheese and reg sour cream. The first had more flavor and was by far the best!!
I love corn food. I may live off snack and this dip appearance amazing and authentic.Thanks
Can this be made covered in the oven at a low temp?
Unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot advise on how to adapt this recipe without a slow cooker. However, here is an article worth checking out on a possible conversion guide from Williams-Sonoma: http://blog.williams-sonoma.com/slow-cooker-vs-dutch-oven-a-conversion-guide/.
Can I use habanero peppers instead
I like to use frozen corn in lieu of canned corn. To avoid the extra moisture, I would suggest either microwaving the frozen corn and then draining before adding to the recipe or even using a pan on the stove top to saute the the frozen corn until the excess moisture has evaporated.
I made this tonight and it was scrumptious! Definitely going into my favorite recipe file!
Hello I’m English what is a crockpot? Can I make this without one? ☺️
A Crock-Pot is a large electric pot used for cooking food very slowly. And without further recipe testing, I cannot advise on how to adapt this recipe without a slow cooker. However, here is an article worth checking out on a possible conversion guide from Williams-Sonoma: http://blog.williams-sonoma.com/slow-cooker-vs-dutch-oven-a-conversion-guide/.
Can you do it on high to cut the cook time in half or will it burn?
Or how well does it reheat? If I cooked it in the morning and in the evening turned the crock pot on warm or low do you know if it would yield the same results?
Stephanie, I worry that cooking on high heat will cause the dip to burn. As for reheating, it should be fine to keep the dip on the warm setting but it may be best to stir it occasionally.
Can this be frozen and thawed in a crockpot?
Unfortunately, I cannot answer this with certainty as I have never tried freezing this myself – there were no leftovers left to freeze! Please use your best judgment for freezing and reheating.
Hi! I think I’m going to make this tomorrow for a cookout… Do you think the recipe will be enough (without doubling) to serve 8 people? We will also have lots of other food, but I just want to be sure before preparing it. Thanks!
Serena, this recipe yields about 6 standard appetizer servings. Please use your best judgment to serve 8.
Making this today for a DIP-OFF for charity! Wish me luck.
I’m hoping it will hold up after being out at room temp for a little while. Any experience with that?
Unfortunately not – we devoured it all while it was still hotttt 🙂
Do you think goat cheese could be used in place of the cream cheese?cream cheese bothers our tummies!
You can certainly try substituting goat cheese but without further recipe testing, I cannot speak for how much this will change the overall taste/texture of the dish. Using a substitution may also result in a mediocre outcome but if substitutions must be made, please use your best judgment.
Can you prepare as far as adding everything, storing in fridge and then cooking the next day?
I actually have not tried this myself so I cannot really say with certainty – as always, please use your best judgment.
Omgoodness!! This dip is to die for! I used frozen corn but otherwise followed exactly. Love, love, love.
Really good! The next day, I put some leftovers in a mug and poured hot chicken bouillon over – cream of chicken soup!
Currently making this right now! But I do have a question… My dip is mostly white!… The picture it looks mostly corn. I’ve checked and rechecked ingredients, and I followed exactly. Should it look like a white dip with corn ?
Yes, this is completely normal – the dip is mostly white when submerged in the slow cooker.
Wow, this looks delicious! What do you think about substituting one can of black beans for one can of corn, making the recipe 2 cans corn, 1 can black beans? Would the flavors work or would that be a “flavor clash?” Thanks!
