Fresh Tex Mex Corn Casserole



Corn is one of my favorite veggies. I love grilled corn, creamed corn...and just plain ole corn off the cob with butter, salt and pepper.

I especially love when corn is in season. Fresh, juicy, sweet corn.

There are a lot of ways you can make corn, but when the weather starts to heat up and bbq's and get-togethers by the pool with friends and family start filling up the calendar, this has become one of my go-to recipes.

1 medium onion, diced
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp vegetable oil
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup sour cream
1 cup whipping cream
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup melted butter, cooled
1 - 4oz can of diced green chillies 
4 ears fresh corn 
2/3 cup  flour
1/2 cup corn meal
3 TB sugar
1 TB baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup shredded mild cheddar cheese

Preheat the oven to 350' F. Spray a 13x9 casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray

In a medium pan heat 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil over medium low heat.  Saute the onions, bell pepper and garlic until tender.

In a large bowl, combine the egg, sour cream, whipping cream, 2 TB vegetable oil, melted butter and green chillies.

Cut the corn off the cob and then run the knife up the cob to release the remaining "milk"


Add corn to the mixture.

In a medium bowl, combine the flour, corn meal, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir to combine then add to the corn mixture.

Pour into your prepared casserole dish


Bake for 40 minutes. Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top and bake for an additional 10 - 15 minutes or until golden brown and the center is set.
