    Twisted idea

    Carol MOLMEN from Olalla, WA

    I like the idea of changing [twisting?] this recipe. ie different cheese[s]- I am pondering some good leftover ham & maybe some sweet onion instead of the pepper[s]- maybe I'll try a smokier type of cheese too.

    Joan Randall from CAPE CORAL, FL

    The first time I made this souffle, I followed the directions exactly. The second time, I used cornmeal for a slightly different texture...It held up well. Next time, I think I'll try different cheeses!

    Recipe was good first time around but do not plan on leftovers. It is nasty when it is re-heated.

    fresh garden vegetables

    Elizabeth Halfman from DAVENPORT, IA

    This recipe lead me into the right direction for making a corn souffle out of fresh garden vegetables. We added a little vandalia onion and bacon bits. Add what ever fancies you taste bud's.

    Louetta Nicolle from TORRANCE, CA

    I have fixed this a couple of times, the first time I made it exactly as directed, the second time I added finely minced ham and minced onion, it turned out delicious, the next time I added crumbled bacon and minced onion, again delicious.

    New Side Dish

    VALERIE JENNINGS from Rowlett, TX

    I tried this recipe as a side dish with a stacked enchilada recipe my sister sent me. We liked it, but I think it is more of a brunch item. It was easy to make and I really liked the light texture.

    I made this souffle for my dinner tonight and you can be sure I will be making this more often. My husbands standard answer is its ok, then he laughs at me. So as far as I am concerned its a good one. Real nice side dish with Baked Dijon Chicken.

    I thought this was very good. I tried to lighten it up a touch though. I am a Weight Watchers person, and I needed to do some lighter changes. It still was very good and I will surely make this again. Thanks for the recipe.

    Unique Southwest Corn Souffle

    Patricia Starks from Derma, MS

    I made this for supper after looking for a corn pudding recipe on this site and finding this one for the corn souffle. I have never made a souffle before and didn't quite know what to expect. What a delightful surprise! It was similar but just different enough to be unique. It had the taste of corn pudding but was much better. I think the green chiles were just the right thing. My family quickly ate it all up. Will have to make another one (soon).

    I really enjoyed this souffle, it was very tasty, I only changed the green chiles for fresh poblano chiles (the ones used for chiles rellenos) because they go great with corn.
