Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Melt the butter and olive oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add the corn, onions, garlic, bell peppers, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the corn kernels turn deep golden brown, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Add the mayonnaise, the cheddar (reserving ½ cup), the bacon and the cayenne and mix well. Pour into an 8-inch square un-greased Cuisinart baking dish and sprinkle the remaining cheese on top. Bake until bubbly and golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Serve hot with the chips.
