Creamy and delicious! This Cheesy Corn Casserole is my favorite side dish. It's simple to make and so full of flavor, a real must-try. You can even spice it up a notch by adding jalapenos or more chiles!
Gotta love those cheesy meals!
Anything that is made with melted cheese is going to be good! My entire family loves cheese in all different forms. It was actually pretty hard to put this meal together without little fingers reaching for shredded cheese and sticking their fingers in the cream cheese. When cooking with cheese the family is usually banned from the kitchen otherwise we would not have any cheese left to cook with! Seriously check out all my cheesy recipes next. They are all wonderfully cheesy!
How to make Cheesy Corn Casserole:
Drain corn and add it to a pot. Melt in butter and cream cheese and stir.
Add in the green chilies, salt, and pepper to your pot.
Add in and melt Colby jack and cheddar cheese.
Remove from heat and allow to cool for 5-8 minutes then serve.
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 to much water to your casserole. To use it just cook it first then drain well and add it in 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.
