Corn Bites

Here's a quick little party bite that is a snap to throw together. My niece, Kelli, made these for a family thing a while back and I'm FINALLY caught up to sharing them with you. Sorry that it took so long, Kel! Anyway, I have no idea where she got the recipe, but like I always say, since she's the one who gave it to me, she's the one who gets the credit. They're just a few simple ingredients that you mix together, pop 'em in the oven and boom, it's a party! Sometimes the simplest things are the best, don't you think? Better make lots of them because they're HIGHLY addictive!
Thanx Kel!

8oz bar of cream cheese, softened
8oz bar pepper jack cheese, shredded
1 egg
1/2 cup frozen corn
1 bag Tostito's Scoops

Mix all filling ingredients together.
Fill Tostito's Scoops with cheese mixture and place on a baking sheet.
Bake at 425ºF for 15 minutes or until bubbly.

 -If you're not a spicy kinda person, you can use regular jack or cheddar cheese instead of the pepper jack. On the flip side, if you LOVE the heat, add some diced chilis or some crushed red pepper!
-Feel free to switch things up a bit! Keep everything the same, but try another ingredient instead of the corn. Yes, yes, I know they're called corn bites, but maybe they can be sausage bites, or pepperoni bites! Or how about asparagus or broccoli or spinach bites or even crab and shrimp bites! Or any combination you like! Just cook your main ingredient(s) and chop it up, then throw it into your filling mixture and bake as usual. Simple!
