Southwest Corn and Three Cheese Party Cups

Recipe Southwest corn and three cheese party cups

These cheesy bites are great for a party or get-together. They make a fun finger food with a perfectly balanced blend of gooey and crunchy textures. The poblano pepper gives it a bold flavor that's not too spicy. (If you don't like heat, you can tone it down.)

You can also serve the cheese and corn mixture on its own as a dip!

Worried that corn is out of season? No need! You can freeze sweet corn while it’s in season to enjoy all year.
