    Easy, Delicious Chip Dip!

    Howdy y'all

    Recently I spent some time with my niece, and she had some dip she had made that was just awesome! And it's so quick and easy to make too. Here is the recipe:


    1 can of black beans (drained)
    1 can of shoepeg corn (drained)
    1 tomato
    1 green pepper
    1 onion
    1/2 cup of ranch dressing

    Chop up the tomato, green pepper and onion into small pieces. Mix with all the other ingredients. Even though this dip is good as soon as it's made, it does get better when it's chilled. Enjoy!

    She had tortilla chips, but she also said she likes to use celery sticks to dip it with.

    We buy the shoepeg corn in the small can when we can't get corn on the cob. Tastes wonderful, even if it is canned!

    I make one similar to this. I chop tomato, avocado, onion, black olives and chili peppers and mix it with a little Italian salad dressing. I also use tortilla chips to dip with.

    Hubby and I were invited to the neighbors Sat evening, and I made your dip! After two hours I tasted it, and it was a bit too oniony...so I would cut back on the onion a bit. However...I added more corn (not shoepeg, but frozen from my garden) and a bit more ranch dressing. We used Dorito Scoops...but then the next day we ate it again on some Ranch Doritos, they were yummy too! I will definitely make this again...THANKS for sharing!

    OK, I took this to a family get together this weekend and it went over very well. It made a generous bowl. I was glad to have a healthy and tasty option. I used low-fat ranch dressing. I'll make this again when I have to take something to a gathering...this will be good for Super Bowl party.

    Yes, it is sweet white corn. I never bought it before this recipe. Green Giant had it in a can, and also another white corn it said was very sweet. I googled shoepeg corn to see what it was, and some sites said you could use yellow corn in any recipe as is or add a teaspoon of sugar if you wanted to.

    Shoepeg corn actually says "shoepeg corn" on the can. I found it at Wal-Mart, but there was only one brand that had it. I'm thinking it was Green Giant maybe? Shoepeg corn is a white corn, but the kernels are a bit smaller and tenderer than other types of corn you buy. I would think any corn would work though. :c)

    Donna is correct, shoepeg is on the Green Giant can, but any corn should work. Oh, the can is smaller than the regular 14/15 oz can, but should be located with the rest of the canned corn selections.
