Dr Pepper Hot Corn Dip Recipe

Longtime readers of Sugar, Spice & Glitter already know of my family’s football obsession – and of my party food obsession!

Half of the fun of getting together to watch the game is getting to enjoy some yummy, indulgent food – like pulled pork, gooey football-shaped brownies, or a cheesy Hot Corn Dip!

This year, I decided to take a conventional Hot Corn Dip and bring it up a notch by adding Dr Pepper into the recipe.

The result?

A savoury, slightly sweet n’salty, creamy and cheesy dip with plenty of tasty sautéed veggies!

For the BEST flavor, I recommend cooking down your Dr Pepper before making the recipe to make a more concentrated “Dr Pepper syrup.”

  1. Tried this dip last night for a Mexican themed dinner party and it was NOT a hit. I followed the recipe just as it was written. It was too greasy and wasn’t even appealing to look at because of all the “standing” grease. Not sure why the addition of Dr.Pepper. That taste was lost with all the cheese taste.

    1. Hi Tony,
      I’m really sorry you had a bad experience – as you can see in my video and pictures, we did not have an issue with standing grease, but we used pre-shredded cheese. Did you by chance cover up the dish while baking? (We didn’t… I’m trying to figure out where this could have gone wrong 🙂 )
      The Dr Pepper added a bit of sweetness for us, but it was mostly just a fun alternative to adding cream or milk to the dip.
