Cheesy Red Pepper Corn Dip

I'm all for making appetizers cute and adorable.

What I'm not for is making appetizers cute and adorable but making them ridiculously awkward to eat. Like this:

or this:

How the fuck you expect me to eat that?!

Basically makes me feel like this when I'm trying to look like the delicate lady I am:

Here's something you can eat and still look like a civilized human being. A creamy, cheesy corn dip with red peppers and onions.

-1 tablespoon butter
-1 can corn, drained
-1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
-1/4 cup diced white onion
-2 tablespoons mayo
-1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
-1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or more if you like the heat)
-1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
-1/4 teaspoon onion powder
-optional: 1/2 cup diced crispy bacon

1. Heat the oven to 400.

2. In a sauce pan, over medium-high heat the butter then add the red peppers, onions, and corn. Saute about 5-7 minutes. Pour into a bowl and stir in the mayo, garlic and onion powders, cayenne pepper, and salt and pepper to taste. If adding bacon, stir in as well. I've made it a few times with bacon, SO good!! Stir in about 3/4 cup of the cheese. Pour into a baking dish and top with the remaining cheese.

3. Bake 15 minutes, then broil 5-7 minutes to make the cheese on top golden browned. Add more cheese if needed, I won't judge you.
