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. sorry about the double post, but there is no edit function … and I love this recipe so much – that I needed to say exactly how I’ve fiddled with this gem to get it perfect for every palate in our family… including GLUTEN FREE

    If you love jalapeno’s but they are too hot for the family…. or you… try the canned SWEET jalapeno’s .. they are milder and have that wonderful jalapeno flavor that prompts you to add too many.

    It solves the problem. I used almost 3/4 cup in the cuisinart with the sour cream, egg and garlic cloves [instead of powder]

    I also top the casserole with a cup of buttered Ritz Cracker crumbs…. . YUMMLY

    This is a keeper that keeps evolving

    GLUTEN FREE – I tried it with corn meal and almond flour … it was great .

  2. IF you love jalapeno’s but they are too hot for the family…. or you… try the canned SWEET jalapeno’s .. they are milder and have that wonderful jalapeno flavor that prompts you to add too many …. solves the problem. I used almost half a cup in the cuisinart with the sour cream, egg and garlic cloves…

    I also not top this casserole with buttered ritz crackers…. YUMMLY

    This is keep that keeps evolving

  4. Made for my husbands office potluck. They said it was soooo good! Used jar jalapenos. I still yet to taste it but hubby saved me a piece.
