This Bacon Ranch Corn Dip recipe is perfect as a game day appetizer recipe!  The combination of sweet corn, spicy jalapenos, and salty savory bacon makes a wonderful game day dip.



For the corn:

  • 10 large ears of fresh white corn
  • ¼1/2 cup olive oil
  • chili powder
  • garlic powder
  • salt
  • pepper
  • onion powder

For the sauce:

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup cotija cheese
  • juice from 1 ½ limes (about 3 tablespoons)
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 packet ranch dressing mix
  • 1 diced jalapeno
  • handful finely chopped cilantro
  • 3 large green onions
  • 6 strips of freshly cooked bacon, chopped


  • Shuck and rinse off each piece of corn.
  • Drizzle each cobb with 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil and seasoning each with 1/4 teaspoon of each of the seasonings. Rub the oil and seasonings over the corn.
  • Preheat grill on high heat. When grill is hot (about 600 degrees), reduce to medium high and place the corn on the grill.  Rotate every 1-2 minutes until corn is charred on each side.
  • Remove from grill and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes.
  • In a medium size bowl, mix together mayonnaise, cotija cheese, lime juice, ranch mix and seasonings. Stir in cilantro, green onions, jalapeno and bacon.
  • Once the corn is cool, cut the corn off of each cob and add to the sauce. Mix together.
  • Garnish with cilantro.
  • Serve with tortilla chips or my favorite…by the spoon full.
