Easy Three-Corn Casserole
This recipe is not your usual corn casserole recipe, because it contains corn in three different forms. Not only that, but it also gives you options for other ingredients you might want to add, depending on what your taste buds are yearning for on that day.
The first time I tasted this Three-Corn Casserole was while visiting my sister, all the way across the country from where I lived. This was years ago, but this casserole made such an impression on me I asked for the recipe. The result is the basic recipe here, but I added a Southwestern touch to it with green chiles when I made my version. Other vegetables such as broccoli, brussels sprouts, green onions, even peas or carrots, could also be part of the recipe depending on your taste.
The reason I say this is not your “usual” corn casserole, is because it contains green chiles. If you have a problem with spiciness, or don’t like hot chiles, mild ones are available, and they provide the flavor without the heat. The corn casserole will bake up nice and lightly browned, with a wonderful flavor to accompany any meal. The chiles just give it that extra “over the top” taste you keep coming back to.
Basic Three-Corn Casserole
1 can whole kernel corn
One Can Cream Style Corn, any brand
2 sticks margarine, melted
2 eggs, beaten
You can mix those five things together and quit right there, then follow the recipe below for baking. OR…you can do as I did, and spark up the flavor with
1 can chopped green chilis, (optional, mild or hot)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together all ingredients, pour into a 9×13-inch baking dish.
Bake in 350 degree oven for 45-50 minutes or until slightly golden brown on top.
If you’d like to add other ingredients; peas, carrots, broccoli florets or chopped brussels sprouts to this recipe, feel free to do so, they taste wonderful with the corn layers. Chopped green onions also add great flavor or may be used as a garnish. There’s hardly any vegetable that can’t be added to this casserole, so experiment to your heart’s content.
