This casserole with corn, jalapenos, and cream cheese is similar to another one on this site, but much better. This side can go with any Mexican dish and many more. I even made it as part of our Thanksgiving dinner.

I use less butter and just make a classic rue and then melt the cream cheese into that. Be careful taking this to family functions though they will expect you to bring it every time! Read More

Next time I will reduce the amount of jalapenos! We were feeling hot hot hot from this one! Good flavor though. I used neufchatel cheese rather than cream cheese to cut down on the fat. Without so much heat this would be a great side dish. Read More

Made this first time as stated and it was good but needed a little tweaking. I have used both canned and frozen corn with good results. It was a little runny when made as written so I do add more flour. I like to use fresh jalapenos with the seeds as we like spicy. For a variation of this recipe I have also added rotel and mozzarella cheese. Good side dish and super easy. Read More

I cut the jalapenos in half only because I have kids and added one chopped red pepper that I'd sauteed in a little bit of the butter. I also used FF cream cheese. We liked this. Next time I'd like to do half sour cream. Read More

My boyfriend and I made this for Thanksgiving and it was a hit! Everyone was asking for seconds. We added some fried onion crisps and cheddar cheese and little extra flour to thicken it up. We also used fresh jalapenos and sprinkled it with cayenne pepper to spice it up. This will definitely be a regular at family meals!! Read More

Like the person who submitted this recipe I had tried the other version of this recipe but like this one better. I made the following modifications: did not have milk on hand so I used heavy whipping cream diluted with a little water; I topped my casserole with cheese cracker crumbs tossed in melted butter and seasoned with a little garlic salt. Even my picky son in law liked this! Read More
