Jalapeno corn casserole recipe

I decided to jazz up traditional corn casserole with a little heat. The results? Amazing!

This new recipe has just enough heat to really spice things up but not so hot that the kids can’t eat it. Everyone will enjoy it.

The entire casserole is moist and really savory. I just know you will love it!

ingredients for corn casserole: cream corn, green chilies, cheese, jalapenos

  • Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix
  • Creamed Corn
  • Whole Kennel Corn -drained

  • green chilis
  • Jarred Jalapeños-diced
  • Jalapeño juice from the Jar

How to make jalapeno corn casserole:

First, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. While the oven is preheating, spray a 9X13 pan with cooking spray and set aside.

Second, beat the eggs together in a large bowl.

Next, stir in the cream corn, whole corn, Jiffy corn mix, green chilis, diced jalapeños, jalapeño juice and half of the cheddar cheese. Make sure this is well combined.

Once the casserole has finished cooking, add the remaining cheddar cheese on top. Let this cook for a few more minutes to melt the cheese.

It’s best served warm. Enjoy! This cheesy corn casserole is so yummy.

Fresh Jalapenos vs Canned Jalapenos

I usually use jarred jalapeños for this recipe but fresh jalapeños work great too! I prefer jarred because they are softer and blend easily into the corn casserole mixture.

However, you can certainly use what you prefer or have on hand. Either one will taste yummy.

Can I make corn casserole ahead of time?

Yes, assemble the casserole as instructed and bake as normal. Cover with aluminum foil. When ready to enjoy, allow the casserole to come to room temperature.

Bake at 350 covered for 15 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for another 10 minutes or until the casserole is heated.

This is a great option for holidays, potlucks and more. You will save time and everyone can still enjoy a great casserole.

Tips for jalapeno corn casserole:

  • Don’t overmix. This can make the casserole dry.
  • Don’t overbake. You don’t want to have a dry corn casserole. Be careful not to overbake as this will definitely dry out the casserole!
  • Cheese- Sharp cheddar is delicious but we have also used mild cheddar, pepper jack, Colby and anything else we had on hand.
  • Cornbread- The recipe calls for Jiffy mix but you can also use this delicious homemade cornbread recipe. It’s yummy and also perfect in this casserole.
  • Sour cream- You can also add a ½ cup of sour cream to the corn casserole mixture.
