“You’ll love the savory sweet flavor of this green chili corn casserole. It goes great with holiday dinners!”If you’re from the south, then you know you gotta have corn casserole for Thanksgiving. Recently, one of my best friends was raving about a corn casserole recipe that she was making. She was taking it with her to meet her boyfriends parents for the first time and wanted to make a good first impression.
She told me, “This is the ugliest casserole but it’s so darn good, you can’t stop eating it!” It’s called Green Chili Corn Casserole, or some people call it Shoepeg Corn Casserole.
I have to say she’s right, it’s one of the best corn casseroles I have ever had!
It’s creamy and sweet, with that little hint of green chili in the back ground. I put it together in no time, and it doesn’t take up much room in the oven on turkey day.
Here’s how to put it together.
Melt the butter, cream cheese and milk in a heavy saucepan over medium heat and stir until smooth. Add the corn, green chilis and salt and stir to combine everything.
Place into an 8″ x 8″ baking dish, sprinkle the top with parsley and bake at 300° for 30 minutes.
That’s all there is too it folks, it’s really that simple.
