  • We made this recipe is a 4 quart crock pot. However this can easily be made in a 6 quart crock pot too.
  • You can substitute fresh corn for canned corn. Often in the summer when corn on the cob is on sale, we use that and just take the corn off the cob to use.
  • Frozen corn- You can also substitute a bag of frozen corn if you prefer to use that.
  • This recipe easily doubles. It is a great dish for a potluck or holiday.
  • Garnish with green onions if you want to add a pop of color.
  • It is best to use regular cream cheese and not reduced fat cream cheese.
