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.
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.”
