Adapted from an Emeril Recipe.


4 ears of corn, cut off the kernels
2 tablespoons butter
1 yellow onion, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
1/2 bunch scallions, the green and white part chopped
1 Jalapeno, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
8 ounces sharp cheddar
1/2 Cup mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4-3/4 teaspoons cayenne pepper
Tortilla chips for dipping


1) Cut corn kernels off the cob into a bowl so they don’t fly everywhere.

2) Add kernels to a large skillet with a few tablespoons of butter and cook until kernels start to brown over medium heat (about 8-10 minutes).
3) Meanwhile, dice onion, peppers, scallion, garlic, and jalapeno. Add veggies to pan and cook for a few more minutes to mix veggies and lightly cook the veggies.
4) Add all the veggies to a large bowl along with other ingredients (just half of the cheese). Stir together.
5) Add to an 8×8 baking dish and top with remaining cheese.
6) Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes until cheese is bubbling.
7) Serve with chips!
