Cheesy Hot Corn Dip

My kids love corn in all its shapes and forms. Add melted cheese, tortilla chips then asking them to wait for this to cool down becomes almost unbearable. I try to make my dip a little healthier (you can’t really call this healthy with all the cheese but healthier)by replacing the regular mayonnaise or sour cream with milk thickened by flour and oatmeal.
