Vegan Hot Corn Dip

You just can’t get any easier than this…a five ingredient dip that takes less than 2 minutes to pull together and will disappear just as fast.

I found this awesome recipe and although the original wasn’t vegan, I changed a few ingredients and made this a cheesy vegan dip that is sure to become one of your favorites.

I substituted the monterey jack cheese with Daiya vegan mozzarella cheese, the parmesan cheese with nutritional yeast and regular mayonnaise with Vegenaise.

My nutritional yeast is the large flake version, so I put it in my Mr. Coffee coffee grinder and made it into a fine parmesan texture.

My husband, (who hasn’t fallen in love with vegan cheese yet and has to have “real” cheese) really liked it, but said the nutritional yeast was a little too much.  I happen to absolutely love nutritional yeast so I didn’t really notice it to be overpowering.  For me, the more the better! However, if you don’t want a strong nutritional yeast flavor, you may want to reduce it by maybe a 1/4 cup.

And, there’s probably a reason the recipe is called “hot” corn dip…it 110% tastes better “hot” out of the oven than after it has cooled down, so definitely make sure you serve it hot!


Tip:  Corn is the #1 GMO crop being produced today. Please make sure the corn you use is ORGANIC to avoid GMO’s.  The same if you use corn chips – get ORGANIC or non-GMO corn chips.  I used 365 Brand from Whole Foods for both the corn and corn chips.  

Where to Buy:  If you have trouble finding any of the ingredients to make this recipe, you can order online from Amazon and have them delivered straight to your door:

    I’m very excited to try this recipe. But we also don’t have Daiya cheese anywhere around. Do you think it will work just as well and taste just as good if I substituted the Go Veggie cheese instead?

    • Karielyn says

      Hi Michelle! Yes, you could use another brand of shredded cheese for this recipe. I just showed the Daiya brand because that’s the brand I buy.

      As long as it melts it will work fine.

      That’s a great question and I hope you enjoy the recipe if you make it :)
