Esquites Dip is an easy dip that you can make during summer times. I like the fact that it can be made ahead and can be taken for pot lucks of picnics. It is a non messy way to enjoy corn and comes together so quickly. This is a no onion or garlic version hence if you are jain you can enjoy this. Try it out and I promise it will be best thing.


Esquites Dip

Esquites are off the cob Mexican street corn. It’s tangy, spicy, salty and sweet. Esquites in the dip form tastes so delicious and it’s a perfect recipe to make ahead or take it to potlucks. My recipe is no onion/ garlic version. This dip when paired with chips tastes so good and I love the fact that it is not messy. You will need 10 minutes and this creamy dip will blow your mind.
