Creamy Corn Casserole

I was looking for a quick corn casserole recipe for a dinner party and came across a good one by Paula Deen. I have always liked watching her show on the Food Network. I have decided to give her recipe a try, especially as it seemed pretty simple (mix, dump, and bake).

Paula Deen’s recipe was a bit sweet for our family’s taste so I changed things around a bit.

The recipe here is based on Paula Deen’s with a few added ingredients. I added jalapeno, green onions, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and extra cheese. I tried this recipe out with different types of cheese and the winner was cheddar jack. The recipe below reflects that.

Adding those few extra ingredients made the dish less sweet and added more flavor. This a perfect side dish for the holidays and during the week as well.

I hope you give this version a try and let me know your thoughts.



  • 1 (14.75) oz. can creamed corn
  • 1 (15.25) oz. can whole corn, drained
  • 1/4 cup canned or jarred diced fire roasted green chilies
  • 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese or cheddar jack, grated
  • 1 (8.5) oz. Box Jiffy corn muffin mix
  • 1/4 tsp. each salt, ground black pepper, and garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup green onion, thinly sliced, a little more for garnish
  • 4 oz. unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup sour cream


Preheat your oven to 350 °F. Spray an 9 by 11-inch baking pan or a deep dish pie pan with non-stick cooking spray.

In a large mixing bowl, stir together both cans of corn, corn muffin mix, sour cream, butter, jalapeno, green onion, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and one cup of cheese.


Pour into prepared baking dish. Bake at for 40 to 45 minutes, or until golden brown.

Sprinkle the other cup of the cheddar cheese and return to oven for another 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted.


Sprinkle some more sliced green onions over the top. Make sure to cool for 7-10 minutes before serving.

Serves 8-10
