How to make Cheesy Corn:
Cook: To make this side dish, start by draining your corn. Melt in your butter and cream cheese to the corn.
Mix: Next add in the green chilis and salt and pepper to the corn mix. Once it is all mixed together well, you will add in the cheese!
Melt: Add in all the shredded cheese, mix well and allow it all to melt together.

Step One Continued - Add in the green chilies, salt, and pepper to your pot.

Step Three - Remove from heat and allow to cool for 5-8 minutes then serve.
How to store Cheesy Corn:
Once the Cheesy Corn has fully cooled, scoop it into an air-tight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.
Can I use frozen corn?
For this recipe, you could use frozen corn, but you would want to cook it ahead of time and drain it well.
Adding frozen corn to the butter and cream cheese would cook the corn in the pot but it would also add way too much water to your casserole.
To use it just cook it first then drain well and add it at the same time you could the canned corn.
Can I use fresh corn?
To use fresh corn, you can shuck corn on the cob to use.
This can be added to the pot right away, but it could take a little longer to cook than the can.
To get soft corn like cans I would try boiling the corn before shucking it then add it to the casserole.
