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.
