This simple one skillet Creamy White Chicken Chili Corn Dip incorporates all the flavors of my favorite white chicken chili into the creamiest, cheesiest corn-filled dip. Perfect for late summer parties and fall game-day festivities. Made with poblano peppers, sweet corn, beans, shredded chicken, and of course, with cheese on top. It’s spicy, creamy, and so delicious. Serve this up dip-style with fresh toppings and tortilla chips on the side for scooping.

We’ve got one last extra cheesy corn recipe for these early September days. It’s crazy that tomorrow is September first. But with September now here, both the start of fall and the beginning of football season are upon us.

Of course, we still have plenty of warm days left. But September is always so exciting with everything we have to look forward to. Game days with friends cheering on our favorite teams. Crisp fall days, apple picking, and enjoying cider doughnuts. Then on to Halloween fun, and, of course, the holiday season.

I love fall so much. And I love this recipe. It’s the perfect transitional recipe. Great for end-of-summer days and perfect for fall entertaining.

I adapted the recipe based on my white chicken chili I made last season. Over the last year, that chili has become a staple. It’s my favorite chili recipe and most of my family’s too.

The details

To put it simply, this is white chili minus any broth and made with the addition of cream cheese, sour cream, and cheese. It’s all made and baked in one skillet in less than an hour’s time.

Cook the onion and vegetables until they smell fragrant. Then turn off the heat and add the creamy things – cream cheese, and sour cream. Mix in sweet corn, beans, salsa verde, and a handful of shredded chicken.

At this point, you can bake the dip in the skillet, assuming it’s oven safe. I love to use my Staub cast iron skillet for this.

If you don’t have an oven-safe dish, transfer the dip to a baking dish. I did end up transferring my dip to a baking dish, but only for photo purposes. Otherwise, I would have kept the dip in my skillet!

Now top with cheese and bake until the cheese is melty and the dip is bubbling up the sides.

I always top this with chunks of avocado, fresh cilantro, and green onions. Then a couple of dollops of plain yogurt on top are pretty delicious too. Oh, and tortillas chips are a must for scooping. A must.

That’s pretty much it. Simple as can be, but every scoop of creamy, cheesy dip is so delicious. Think a little spicy, very creamy, filled with lots of sweet corn, topped cheese, and then all those toppings. I love a simple appetizer that shocks people with its deliciousness.

We’re ready for game days ahead!

  1. Great recipe! Do you think this steps 1-3 could be completed in advance and then baked hours later once guests arrive?

    1. Hey Kate,
      Totally, that would be just fine for you to do! Let me know if you give this recipe a try, I hope you love it! xx

    My family loves White Chicken Chili because they can turn each bowl into a chip dip. When I saw this recipe, I knew I had to try it. I made it for NYE and we all loved it. But, there were a lot of leftovers. That was just fine. I put the leftovers in a crockpot with 1 pint of chicken broth and 2 cups of white beans and let them warm through and we had White Chicken Chili for dinner. Both ways were completely enjoyable. Thanks for sharing a great recipe.

    1. Hey Dodi,

    Made this for NYE and it was a big hit! Used frozen corn since fresh is hard to find in the winter. Worked great!

    Definitely a delicious alternative to buffalo chicken dip.

    this is delish! Had to make a substitution because my grocery store was out of poblanos and salsa verde…so, I used a dried ancho chili pepper from my pantry and a 7 ox can of green chilis which I pureed with my stick blender!!! the dip is soooo yummy!

    1. Hey Christine,

    1. Hey Jessica,

    Made it for guests last night in a Staub 11 x 7 casserole. Mixed it up day before and put it in the fridge overnight.
    Need to serve with a STURDY cracker or chip. Put out little serving plates and knives as this is too hearty a dip to actually dip a chip into it.
    I followed instructions except it took a little longer to bake as mine was cold. Loved the avocado on top.
    Was excellent.
