  • 3 cups frozen corn
  • 8 ounces cream cheese (1 block of Philly) softened
  • 1 (10 fluid ounce) can Rotel Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies with juices
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/3 cup scallions chopped
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • Take the cream cheese out of the fridge about an hour or so prior to starting the recipe or microwave it for 20-30 seconds so it becomes nice and soft.
  • Add all ingredients except for the corn and scallions to a skillet or large saucepan over medium heat. Cook for a few minutes, stirring it until the cream cheese has melted into a nice sauce.
  • Add the corn and scallions and cook for another 5-7 minutes, or until it's heated through (stir it often and turn the heat down if it starts to bubble too much and dry out). If you want to thin it out a bit, add a splash of chicken broth. Taste and season with salt & pepper as needed.
  • Serve hot or chill first. Can be eaten as a dip (hot or cold) or as even as a hot side dish like you would serve creamed corn.


  • You may use canned corn instead of frozen corn.
