  • 3 c corn canned or fresh
  • 8 oz cream cheese room temperature
  • 1/2 c good mayonnaise such as Duke's
  • 1/3 c sour cream full-fat
  • 1/2 c Cotija cheese
  • 2 tsp Tajin seasoning
  • 2 bell peppers diced
  • 1 c cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1/2 red onion diced
  • 1-2 jalapeños seeded and diced
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • cilantro to taste
  • kosher salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • tortilla chips for serving
  • avocado for topping


  • Combine cream cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, Cotija cheese, Tajin, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper in a large mixing bowl until well combined.
  • Add in corn, bell peppers, red onion, jalapeños, lime juice, and cilantro. Mix well.
  • Cut the tomatoes in half and sprinkle with salt. Allow the salt to rid of excess tomato juice. Pat dry and fold tomatoes into the dip.
  • Garnish with extra Cotija cheese, Tajin, and sliced avocado. Serve with tortilla chips.


If you make this in advance, do not put the tomatoes in until you are ready to serve. If you want to make the dip thinner, add more mayonnaise.
