Do you think your Wu-Tang sword can defeat me?

En garde, I’ll let you try my Wu-Tang style

It’s cheesy, it’s a great snack and it’s full of delicious in-season corn. I have already professed my love for cheese-based dips. Go forth, make it, and thank me later.

Ingredients:

4 ears of corn, kernels cut from cobs
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup onion, minced
1/2 cup red bell pepper, diced
1 jalapeno, stemmed, seeded, and minced
1 tablespoon garlic, chopped
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 pound Monterey jack cheese, shredded

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 400° F
2. Place corn on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper
3. Roast until brown
4. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a sauté pan, add onions and red peppers, season with salt and pepper
5. Cook for 2 minutes, add corn and cook for 2 more minutes
6. Add garlic and jalapeno, sauté for 1 more minute
7. Remove from heat, add to a large bowl, let cool
8. Add mayo and cheese, stir together
9. Place in a casserole dish and cook until cheese bubbles
