    With an added twist

    Connie Edwards from Anoka, MN

    I think that with the chili powder sprinkling, I'd add a small can of drained green chilies to the corn when being chopped. If there were small children in the house party, I'd probably substitute a little paprika to sprinkle on top (no green chilies, of course).

    Wonderful

    Elsa Johnson from CEDAR PARK, TX

    This was just wonderful and so easy. I omitted the sugar as we do not like sweet corn bread either, but I topped it with cheddar cheese. I will fix again for sure.

    YUM!

    angie leggett from HAZLEHURST, GA

    We enjoyed this, the only thing is make sure to use the type of flour this calls for. I had to use another brand and mine was kind of pasty. I will try again soon with the correct ingredient.

    Lucero Gil from PEMBROKE PINES, FL

    Nice and easy recipe. Also good alone for breakfast, just add some white cheese on top and perfect.

    Absolutely delicious!

    Sandy from Santa Rosa, CA

    I have made this recipe several times now and it's always a winner. Had it for a luncheon today with some girlfriends and it was a huge hit. Tastes exactly like the little scoop of corn that you get at a popular Mexican restaurant. They're always a little stingy with it. I never have Masa, so I just substitute flour and it works fine.

    this recipes is REALLY good. I've tried something similar in the past, yet this tops it totally !

    Not bad

    Sara Thomas from Minot AFB, ND

    This recipe seemed kind of gritty with the corn meal in it. Next time I might omit it. Otherwise it was good.

    darlene brock from MORGAN HILL, CA

    We had friends over for dinner. They were from the south. When they tasted my corn cassarole, the husband suddenly got the biggest grin on his face. Then he said,"just like my mom makes sweet corn." It was a hit.

    WOW!

    margaret larsen from MOUNTAIN HOME, ID

    I'm always looking for new ways to get my toddlers to eat their vegetables. This casserole was a big hit with them as well as with my husband and I. It is so easy to make. I'll definately be making this again very soon.

    Great with Mexican Food

    Peggy Goodrich from CHANDLER, AZ

    My husband and I wanted to try this recipe because it sounded like something that is served at a mexican restaurant. It tasted just as sweet and moist as we remembered. One note on the preparation, I would recommend using warm water in the food processor. The partially thawed corn and butter did not want to process because it was too cold. Thanks!

    sweet corn casserole

    KatS Loyd Smith from MADERA, CA

    Absolutely wonderful .. great, fantastic for family and friends. Also serve cut into squares as an apetizer or snack..think football,Super Bowl or New Years and all those bowl games. Try adding Ortega diced chili's into mix and then dipping the squares into salsa ( I use Salsa Suprema medium or Picante. But its your favorite that counts.)

    Super

    Marlene Wright from Tucson, AZ

    I tried this last night as an alternative to having rolls/bread with a pork roast. It gave me a southwestern taste that blended perfectly with all my menu.

    Easy and versatile!

    C. Daniels from KLAMATH FALLS, OR

    This is such a change from serving the typical Spanish rice as a side dish to our spicy South-of-the-border nights! I added some chopped, cooked chicken, garlic, and taco seasonings to make it for a brunch. This is an excellent base recipe that can be changed to suit meal!

    A great Side dish

    Patsy Kachur from ISHPEMING, MI

    I made this last night as a side dish with our family dinner. It has great taste, looks very good and there was none left. The family loved it and we will make it again. Its is easy to put together and can be done earlier in the day so theres not a fuss during dinner prep time.

    I made this recipe for my family to try and then made it for Christmas dinner I was going to. My family loved it! I made mine using corn muffin mix instead of the flour and things that it called for and it turned out great. My kids loved it and so did I. I will definately make this again.

    I've been looking for a recipe just like this since my children were little, about 25 years! I used to make a similar dish without a recipe, and it always came out differently, depending on my memory and the ingredients on hand at the time. It's great to know I can now make it.
