Cool Corn Dip
Makes about 6 cups

3 ears fresh sweet corn, husks removed

3 green onions, thinly sliced
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Using a sharp knife, carefully cut kernels off the ears of corn; place in a large mixing bowl. Place peppers and garlic in bowl of a food processor and process until finely chopped.

Add chopped peppers, green onions, and cheese to mixing bowl with corn; stir to combine. Add pepper, salt, and lime juice, tossing to coat. Add mayonnaise and sour cream, and stir until well combined.

Cover bowl with plastic wrap, and chill for at least an hour to allow flavors to meld. Serve with corn chips.

Variation: Add ½ cup or more chopped cilantro plus ½ teaspoon cumin for a great Tex-Mex flavor.

Interested in Gluten-free cooking and baking? You’ll LOVE Beyond Flour: A Fresh Approach to Gluten-Free Cooking and Baking!

How many times have you come across a gluten-free recipe claiming to be “just as good as the normal version!”, only to wind up with weird textures, aftertastes, etc? Most gluten-free recipes are developed by taking a “normal” recipe, and swapping in a simulated “all purpose” gluten-free flour… whether store bought, or a homemade version. “Beyond Flour” takes a different approach: developing the recipe from scratch. Rather than swapping out the flour for an “all purpose” mix, I use various alternative flours as individual ingredients – skillfully blending flavours, textures, and other properties unique to each flour. Supporting ingredients and different techniques are also utilized to achieve the perfect end goal … not just a “reasonable facsimile”. Order your copy here.

Looking for even MORE fantastic gluten-free recipes? Beyond Flour now has a sequel: Beyond Flour 2: A Fresh Approach to Gluten-Free Cooking and Baking!

Imagine gluten-free foods that are as good – or better! – than their traditional, gluten-filled counterparts. Imagine no longer settling for foods with bizarre after-tastes, gummy consistency, and/or cardboard texture. Imagine graham crackers that taste just like the real thing. Crisp, flaky crackers…without the sandy texture. Hybrid tortillas that: look and act like flour tortillas, with the taste of fresh roasted corn! Imagine chewy, delicious cookies that *everyone* will want to eat! Imagine BAGELS. If you’ve cooked from “Beyond Flour”, you already know that these fantasies can be reality – it’s all in the development of the recipes. Order your copy here.
