Cheesy hot corn dip! This is the perfect snack or appetizer!

Hot Corn Dip

The dip is full of creamy melty cheese, onions, peppers, and plenty of corn! I like this best with fresh corn cut off the cob, but I often cheat and use a can of corn. I mean, I'm lazy. You all know that about me, don't you?
