I did not care for this recipe. It wasn't a side dish. With the egg and egg whites it turned out to taste more like a breakfast casserole.

This recipe is delicious! I took it to a church potluck, and came back with an empty bowl. Now I plan on taking it to our family Thanksgiving. Thanks for the recipe!

Makes a wondeful and differnt side dish to any holiday meal, or just because. I did, however leave off the corn chips and just topped with cheese.

we made this and everyone thought it was kind of dry and bland, not creamy like a corn pudding should be.

Simple, yet different. Thought it had too many onions, but others loved it. Might be good served with a dollop of salsa and/or sour cream. Definetly will make again. Millons of possibilities with variations. Make this one for dinner and they will say OLE~

I have been making corn pudding or casserole for a long time. I really liked this recipe for the most part. I had no red bell pepper so used chopped pimento instead & I used green onions instead of yellow onion. I also added some bacon and cheddar cheese to the topping. Its a recipe I will make again.

Many corn pudding recipes are rather bland. Yes, I liked the addition of peppers, garlic and onion in this recipe (most don't have them) and if you want a little extra kick, try adding some chopped jalepenos--not bland at all!
