This fiesta Mexican corn dip is made with hidden valley ranch mix and just three extra ingredients for the easiest and most delicious appetizer! There is nothing I love more than combing a few ingredients together and making a delicious dip that is also extremely easy. This dip takes under 5 minutes to prep. It can be served right away; however, I prefer it to be chilled in the fridge for a little. It is zesty, it is sweet, it is creamy and has pops of corn kernels in it! Pair it with any chips or veggies for an awesome appetizer.
Quick Tips for Fiesta Corn Dip
- Don't like yogurt? Sub sour cream!
- If you do not want to make your own ranch, buy a packet
- Let the dip set in the fridge for at least an hour to allow for all the flavors to mend together
- Drain the Rotel if serving right away. If letting it set in the fridge, you can leave the juices
- Add any of your favorite taco / fiesta toppings!
What You Need for Fiesta Corn Dip
There is no cooking required. You really just combine everything in a bowl. You can eat it right then; however, I prefer to let it set in the fridge for at least an hour, to allow the flavors to form together.
- Plain, nonfat Greek yogurt
- Corn kernels
- Fiesta ranch mix
- Mexican shredded cheese - optional
- Any additional taco toppings that you prefer
Substitutions and Suggestions for Fiesta Corn Dip
Substitute plain nonfat Greek yogurt for anything similar that you prefer. I love using plain nonfat greek yogurt as it is thick, has lots of protein and is not all that bad for you. However, you can use a different type of yogurt, sour cream, mayo, or mix any the two.
I can sometimes find Rotel to be spicy; however, it was not spicy in this mix at all. I think the combination of that with the cool and creamy yogurt help to hinder some of the spice. However, you can also substitute that for some salsa. In addition, if you like it extra spicy, add some more seasonings. I can discuss that in a minute.
For the corn kernels, I used extra sweet nibbles. Like I said, I am a baby when it comes to spice so I wanted something to help mellow it out. However, you can use any corn kernels that you have.
However, you can also add any taco toppings that you like. My husband added some jalapeño slices as he was dipping into this fiesta ranch corn dip. I also think this will be really good with some beans for protein, or extra veggies like green onions, bell peppers or red onion.
Shredded Mexican cheese is also amazing in this fiesta dip; however, not completely necessary. I sprinkled on a little to make the dip pretty for a photo and I ate the cheese with the dip; however, I also did love the dip without the cheese. It really depends how light you want to keep the dip.
Making Fiesta Ranch Mix
You can buy a package of fiesta ranch dip; however, I just make it. I have a huge bottle of hidden valley ranch seasonings at my house and I prefer to just use that for this fiesta dip and add some spices to it.
To make fiesta ranch dip, I combine the following ingredients:
- Ranch seasonings
- Onion powder
- Chili powder
- Ground cumin
- Garlic powder
If you prefer to just buy some ranch fiesta mix, use about 4 tablespoons of it - two packets.
If you want to make your fiesta dip spicier, add some spicy spices! You can try ground red pepper, extra chili powder, dried chipotle pepper, or really anything!
How to Make Fiesta Corn Dip
To make fiesta corn dip, just combine all the ingredients in a bowl. You can eat the dip right away; however, I prefer to let it set in the fridge for at least an hour to allow the flavors to form together. Either cover it tightly or place it in an air tight container.
If you need to serve this right away, I will drain the Rotel a little so it is not too soupy. However, if you are letting the dip set in the fridge, you can leave the Rotel as it (with the juices) as the mix will absorb the extra liquid.
As you should let this set in the fridge, this is a great appetizer to prep ahead of the time for a party or gathering. You can make this up to 24 hours in advance and let it set in the fridge, in an air tight container, until ready to eat.
Serve this Mexican fiesta dip cold with some chips or veggies. I also like to keep a little bit of the ingredients to sprinkle on top and make it pretty!
This recipe makes about 7-8, half cup servings; however, it really depends if you drained the Rotel or not and if you added anything else.
