Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • 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.

  • 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 think it would have benefitted from the addition of a small can of green chiles or maybe more jalapeños. It was just a little bland but that may be a personal taste preference. We did enjoy it!

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. I decided to add one more ingredient. I cooked up some real bacon until crispy drained and crumbled it and then mixed about 1/4 cup into the corn/onion/cheese mixture before baking it. My husband and son raved about it! I think the bacon give it the zing! Read More
