- 8 ounces cream cheese grated
- 8 ounces Cheddar cheese grated
- 8 ounces Monterey Jack cheese grated
- 3/4 cup sour cream

To Make Hot Corn Dip in the Oven
Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease an 8-inch square baking dish.
Stir together the corn, cream cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, sour cream, hatch chiles, garlic, ranch dressing mix, salt, and pepper together in a microwave safe bowl. Cover and microwave for 4 minutes, or until the cheese has mostly melted.
Reserve 1 tablespoon of the chopped bacon and 1 teaspoon of the minced green onion for garnish and stir the rest into the corn mixture. Transfer the corn mixture to the prepared pan, place on a rimmed sheet pan to catch drips, and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the cheese sauce is bubbly and golden brown around the edges and on top.
Garnish with reserved bacon and green onion. Serve hot or warm.
To Make Hot Corn Dip in a Slow-Cooker
Lightly spritz the crock of a slow-cooker with non-stick cooking spray or lightly grease it with oil. Stir together the sweet corn, cream cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, sour cream, hatch chiles, garlic, salt, and pepper. Put the lid on the slow-cooker and set the cooker to LOW.
Cook for 2-3 hours, or until the contents are uniformly hot, the cheese is melted, and the corn and hatch chiles are coated with a creamy sauce. While the mixture is cooking, finely chop the crispy bacon and reserve 1 tablespoon of the chopped bacon along with 1 teaspoon of the minced green onion. Stir the remaining bacon and green onion into the hot dip then scoop the dip into a serving dish. Sprinkle the reserved bacon and green onion over the top and serve with chips or as a side dish.
