My P.S.’s brother Rusty and his wife Barb were coming for dinner.  I’d roasted a turkey breast for sandwiches and made stuffing with zucchini to accompany them along with a garden salad.  I thought we might want some snacks for later, when we played games.  And I could slip zucchini into one more dish!

I had a big bowl of Ashley’s Arkansas Caviar already made and waiting in the fridge, but I wanted a warm dip as well.  My mind jumped to my favorite dip of the moment, a warm, cheesy corn dip.  I had some ideas for tweaks, the main being to add shredded zucchini.

I made this dip so fast I forgot to take my obligatory “making the dish” photos.  But really, it’s a dump it all together and heat in the oven recipe.  You’ll do fine without my photos, I’m sure.  I did literally dump this all in a baking dish then realize my dish was too small to mix it in.  So I dumped it all into a big bowl, mixed it, then dumped it back into the dish.  It did fit, it just didn’t have enough extra room for stirring.

The dip baked in a 350°F oven for 30 minutes.  It was bubbling and browned on top and ready to devour.

Everyone loved the dip as it disappeared amid compliments.  I loved that I had leftovers for several nights of midnight snacks with a handful of tortilla chips.  It reheats quickly in the microwave.

My only suggestion is that you could step up the spicy factor by adding some diced jalapenos or more cayenne.  I prefer this dip to not have heat as I have that in the other dips I make.  My tongue needs a break at times!
