I received free samples of Libby’s new Vegetable Pouches mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Libby’s and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.
My mom had always made some really strange, creative, delicious things by basically throwing whatever she felt like eating into a bowl. This has resulted in the weird mix of cream corn with spaghetti (delicious) and, notably for today’s post, a Swiss cheese and corn dip. Because she was always just throwing things together, it’s basically impossible to get the recipe from her years later now that I want to make them for myself.
So I Googled. And Googled. And Googled. Swiss Cheese Corn Dip? Not a real thing. Can’t find it anywhere. She barely even remembered making it, but I had been craving it for weeks. When I got these adorable veggie pouches in the mail and one of them was corn, I knew it was fate and I just had to make it. Have you seen Libby’s Vegetable Pouches? They’re launching in Walmart this fall and will be in other stores early next year. I’m in love.
First of all, the pouches are easier to pack in my pantry than cans. Cans are heavy and I have metal shelves which bend in the middle when I put too many cans on them #VegetableHoarderStatus They stand up, won’t dent, use less energy to produce than cans, and (the best parts to me) you don’t need a can opener + can microwave right in the pouch. As someone who
occasionally regularly wants to bring a pile of vegetables to work for lunch (no judgment zone?), this is incredible! Plus, it’s faster than running back to my office because I forgot to carry my bowl to the microwave. I have to say though, that none of that would mean anything to me if the veggies were subpar. I like my corn to be nice, crispy, and fresh and Libby’s pouches definitely hit the mark!
Now, I’m committed to getting this dip on your table and into your mouth in less than 10 minutes. To save some time, microwave the corn before tossing everything together, then it will already be hot and we’ll just need to get the cheese melty. If you don’t want to waste times with chips (or even with an appetizer) just eat it as a side dish. It’s perfect either way!
