This dish has an odd little history...
Under the category of everything old is new again... Small town funeral food.
My wife's beloved aunt passed away a few weeks ago. We attended the services along with nearly a hundred of Aunt Dorothy's Kids, Grand Kids, Great Grand kids, Nieces, Nephews and various lesser relatives (and in-laws) along with several hundred of the towns 2,000 residents. Much beloved indeed.
And of course when you say much beloved in a small town, you get the "pot luck" funeral church basement meal.
Well, I found me a "new" dish that is decades old. New, but has certainly moved into one of my "Top Five" Vegetable or Side dishes!
I am sure I will be revisiting this dish come summer grilling season. After all, it is served cold. I generally have most of the ingredients on hand (except the chips, but the gas station on the corner has those). It works just as well as a dip as a side dish, and bottom line... just plain DELICIOUS!
It was the stand out of the pot luck for me, so you know it must be good!
I chose to use the "Spicy Nacho" version of Doritos. When I tasted the dish, it was flavored with the Taco version. Either one was excellent! If you are worried about too much spice, maybe a version of this with the "Sour Cream and Onion" style.
So, Here's what I did...
2 Cans of Sweet Corn, drained
2 cups Cheddar Cheese, grated
1/2 cup Mayonnaise
1/2 cup Ranch Dressing
1 medium Red Bell Pepper, diced
1/2 medium Red Onion, diced
1 bag (10 1/2 ounces) "Spicy Nacho" Doritos Corn Chips, divided
Mix everything together except the corn chips.
separate about 1/4th of the chips to use as a garnish
The other 3/4 bag crush coarsely and mix with the corn and mixings
Serve and enjoy!
