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:
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.
