This is a recipe I added to our Thanksgiving menu this year along with Cheesy Green Bean Casserole and Broccoli Casserole. It was such a hit and so easy to make, I think it will become a weeknight favorite.

Cheesy Jalapeno Corn Casserole couldn’t be easier to make. It’s a dump all ingredients in a bowl and stir kind of recipe. The casserole is put in the oven to bake and once it is almost done, I add more cheese on top. Everything is better with a warm and melted layer of cheese on top.

A carton of sour cream makes this casserole really creamy and rich.

I added fresh jalapenos for some spice. You can’t see them in the pictures, but I promise you they are there. You could use pickled jalapenos instead or a small can of diced green chilies. Or just leave them out. It’s still a delicious casserole with no peppers at all.

  1. I made this in an open iron dutch oven in a pellet grill. Only variations; red onion and topped with swiss cheese. Really tasty. Thanks for sharing!!!

  2. When adding the cheese, it it cups by weight (then grated) or grated cheese placed as well as possible in a measuring cup?

  3. Skip the onions. Ruined it the first time I made it. Second time shook in some dried minced onions and it was perfect

  4. I made this Cheesy Jalapeno Corn Casserole recipe as a side with our 2022 Thanksgiving dinner, and everyone who would taste it LOVED it! I’m making it again for our 2022 Christmas dinner. 🙂

  5. I have made this several times now, it’s an amazing recipe. We love Jalipinos, so we add extra! Great for family gatherings.

  7. Made this for Thanksgiving, everyone loved it! It’s my new go to corn casserole recipe and I’ll be taking this to potlucks in the future!

  8. I’ve made lots of corn casseroles and often they are soggy in the middle but this one was tasty and perfect. As I always do, I substitute a bag of frozen corn for the can of corn
