This Yummy Corn Casserole makes a great side dish for any meal.  This dish is wonderful for holidays both summer and winter and great for picnics or buffets.  Your family and guests will love this and ask for more.

Corn casserole with crispy fried onions is delicious.

2 1/2 cups frozen corn

1 (14.75 ounce) can creamed corn

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened (I just put mine in the microwave for about 1 minute to soften)

1 (4 ounce) can green chilis, drained

4 tablespoons butter, divided

1/2 cup chopped green onion

1/2 cup chopped green or red peppers

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon paprika

Pinch cayenne or black pepper (Optional)

1 cup of crispy fried onions, divided

 

Brown onion and green or red peppers in skillet in one tablespoon of the butter.  Spray a 2 quart or larger baking dish with cooking spray,  combine the frozen corn, creamed corn, cream cheese, green chilis, the other 3 tablespoons butter (melted), green onion, green or red peppers, salt, paprika and cayenne or black pepper.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.  Remove and stir 1/4 cup of the crispy fried onions into the casserole.  Add the remaining onions on top and bake for 20 more minutes or until onions are golden brown.  Makes 8 to 10 servings.

Note:  You could add meat to this dish and make it a meal.  Cooked meat like smoked sausage, chicken, turkey or ham would all be good in this dish. Bacon would be good, too.
