My mother won an award many, many years ago with this recipe in the Arizona Republic newspaper. I think it is delish and so different from a lot of other corn casseroles. Everybody I know asks for this recipe so I am giving it to everyone! Enjoy!

  • Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion, bell pepper, and pimento peppers and saute until tender, about 5 minutes.

  • Combine eggs, corn muffin mix, green chiles, whole corn, and creamed corn in a large bowl with the onion mixture. Stir together and pour into the prepared baking pan. Drop sour cream by the spoonful on top of the mixture; cover with Cheddar cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until casserole is firm, about 45 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Pick green chile peppers according to your spice preference (mild, medium, or hot).

I love this recipe, it is so easy. I did make changes: 1 used 2 - 15 oz cans whole kernel corn, draining 1 and using the liquid from the other; omitted the green chilies; added 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper; and mixed only 1 cup of sour cream in the mixture then added the cheddar cheese on top before baking. Took it to our Christmas Potluck and it disappeared! Read More

I would love it, except there is to much Sodium and no values for Potassium. Alas, this is a great recipe, for younger kids. Read More

I like trying out different sides before the holidays and picking a winner to add to the normal Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. This isn't one of those simply because with the cornbread mix it's too starchy, too bready, too similar to my grandmother's tried and true cornbread dressing. I'd get demoted to the kids table for trampling on her dressing and it's place of honor on our table i can see making this for potlucks and BBQ gatherings though. I'd tweak it next time with some added spices like garlic and ground red pepper for flavor and to nudge the heat up a smidge. Read More

Made this for Thanksgiving 2020 because I felt it was a good year to change things up! Well this was very tasty, but i made it the night before and then let it come to room temp before baking it but that resulted in an almost scrambled egg like texture and look. Not attactive looking once baked but the flavor was amazing. I will definetly make this again soon!! Read More

Delicious casserole. My wife (I am the main cook) told me that this would be a great casserole to take to gatherings. The casserole was sweeter the next day. Great leftover. Read More

It's an Oldie but Goody all in one pan. I used to make it, served it as a side dish, and as a quick bread. We love it. Yum! Read More
