Servings: 6


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 cups barbequed fresh or frozen corn, cut from cob or charred in pan
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 cup cotija cheese or crumbled feta, divided
  • 1/2 cup mayonaise
  • 1/2 tsp ground chili powder
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped green onion is a nice alternative


  • Preheat oven to 375 F. 
  • In a 9-inch cast iron skillet or oven proof pan, heat your oil over medium heat. Add the onion and saute until tender, about 4 to 5 minutes. (If using frozen corn, add corn now and cook until kernels are charred.) Add garlic and saute until fragrant, another 1 minute.
  • In a medium bowl, mix cream cheese, 3/4 cup cheese, mayonnaise and chili powder. Add corn mix and stir to combine.
  • Transfer mixture back into cast-iron skillet and spread into an even layer and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup of cheese.
  • Bake in the oven until edges are bubbling, about 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with cilantro and serve with corn chips.
