It’s officially the season of backyard BBQs and pool parties! Summer potlucks are a staple of any respectable southerner’s social calendar, and I am no exception!

  1. This is a simple and delicious dip to make. I had a hard time locating Mexicorn, used to find it locally, not anymore so i used a can of Southwestern corn. Worked just fine. I love green onions so i mixed in more into the dip beside sprinkling on top. I served with tortilla chips

      Thanks for the comment! I also have difficulty finding Mexicorn occasionally, but southwestern corn works just as well! Glad you enjoyed it!
