Best tailgating dip ever - ugly dip

Feel free to devour

I have a confession. Part of the reason I love tailgating is the food. And not just eating it, but also making it. During the Iowa vs ISU tailgate I brought two dips, a corn & tomato salad, sausage, burgers, a speciality drink and it wasn't even our tailgate.

I decided to break out one my good friend's recipe, and an old K-State tailgate favorite, Ugly Dip. (I actually used to joke it was the only reason I was friends with her so she had better keep on making it).

I kind of forgot to take a picture of it before it was devoured. 

Pretty sure it went over well because I was told by some of the Boy's guy friends don't bother showing up at their homes if I didn't have this dip in tow. Success!

Ingredients for Ugly Dip

8 oz. Sour Cream
8 oz. Hellman's Mayo
8 oz. Shredded Chedder Cheese (I used the Colby/Jack/Cheddar mix and it still worked)
1 - 10 oz. can of Rotel Original Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies
2 - 11 oz. cans of Mexi-corn (well drained)
1 pinch of sugar
1 bunch of green onions chopped (you can use the whole onion if you like)

Mix ingredients well and chill for at least 4 hours or overnight. Caution: The waiting just might kill you.

p.s. You'll be glad if you read this all the way through because I am giving away another pair of boots this week! Stay tuned.


  1. That does sounds very good. :) Doesn't sound/look ugly to me. :)

  2. May have to give it a try!! Thanks, always looking for new, easy recepies.

  3. YUM! Sounds awesome. This might be a funny question, but what is Mexi-corn like? Sometimes I have a tough time finding certain ingredients in rural Canada, so in case I can't actually find Mexi-corn I can maybe find or make something similar to it.

    1. Shari, I know my mom has the same problem. It is canned corn that has a little bit of green and red peppers in it. I think if you bought regular corn and then added peppers it would be very similar.

  4. Ugly dip looks beautiful! lol
    Looks like a MUST TRY for us. Thanks for sharing the recipe...
    A boot giveaway...I"M IN! I STILL don't have my new birthday boots(my bday was March) this could be the ticket! ha ha

    1. My birthday is in March too! Watch for more details in the next few days.

  5. I could totally get down with that, minus the mayo. I would just put in more sour cream : )

  6. Wow that sounds amazing! Gonna have to try it for sure!

  7. Saved it! Sounds like something hubby might like. Is it spicy with the green chilies? We don't like a lot of spice. :|
    Maybe I'd try it with just diced tomatoes? :o)

    And probably cut it in half since we don't do tailgates, haha.
    Or maybe fix it for the reunion, if I even remember. :oP

    Have a great night!

  8. There aren't many chiles in at all, and I don't find it very spicy. A full batch makes quite a bit, so cutting down to half won't be a bad idea.

  9. Is this T-Baugh's family recipe? This stuff is delicious. Thanks for posting the recipe..

  10. I have been making a nearly identical version of this dip for a while now. I use grated pepper jack cheese instead of cheddar. Also...this summer I had left over corn on the cob so I cut that off and then used fresh red peppers. Now it was not "ugly" ....it was beautiful as in heavenly with that garden fresh taste.

  11. Do you eat this with tortilla chips or corn or both? Also has anyone tried using cream cheese instead of sour cream?


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear from all my readers. Hope you have a fabulous day.
