  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Saute onion and garlic in hot butter until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir cream cheese with the onion mixture until melted and smooth; add corn and jalapeno pepper. Season the mixture with salt and black pepper; pour into a casserole dish.
  3. Bake until beginning to brown around edges, about 35 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can use white shoepeg corn for this, too.
  • Substituted 1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic for the fresh garlic, if you prefer.
  • This dish as also good without (gasp!) the hot peppers, if they are not to your liking. Sometimes I substitute Fiesta-style corn for a little more color.

I cut this recipe in half, and although we liked it, I was expecting something that had more zing (its name is SPICY HOT Corn). For us, there was too much of a mild/mellow cream cheese flavor. ...

I’m giving this 5 stars in hopes that others will give it a try. I read the other review (there’s only 1 at this time) that said it was bland and too cream-cheesy and that it needs more ‘zing’. ...
