I have this EXACT recipe, EXCEPT my recipe calls for adding Ro-tel to the corn & cream cheese, Try this not bland & oooo so GOOD!
I altered the recipe to serve one person (myself) as a late night snack. I used low-fat cream cheese, but found that it didn't melt very well. So I heated up the corn in the microwave for about 30 seconds, the cream cheese broke up quickly, and it took about half the time to make. I eventually added many of my own seasonings (salt, pepper, paprika) as I found it to be much to bland. Although, I found the cream cheese to corn ratio to be a bit too creamy, this was an okay dish after all. I would suggest tasting it as the dish cooks, and adding your own seasoning as needed. Also, if you are cooking small quantities, cook on low heat, otherwise it will overcook and/or burn.
This was a big hit for Christmas dinner and one of the more popular leftovers. Since it was the holidays, (and we had already blown the diets soooo badly already) I added a few slices of cooked/crumbled bacon and just a touch of bacon grease. I also baked it in the oven to heat it after preparing it the day before - - -wonderful!
I knew ahead of time that this recipe would be too bland for my taste buds, so I added a little chopped garlic and a little more chopped jalapeno for an extra kick. It was even better reheated the next day after the jalapeno had had time to really sink in.
yum! I made half a recipe. I used frozen corn and a can of green chiles, threw it all in a pot on low until warm. I will make this again.
Yummy! I used a tub of cream cheese with chives (instead of plain). Very good - will definitely make again!
My variation of this recipe calls for 1 can of chopped green chilies, garlic salt to taste, and I use 1/2 white corn and 1/2 yellow corn; it comes out colorful and pretty. I cook it in the crock pot - the longer it cooks the better it is. I have friends who won't let me through the door without this dish!!!
While this was a yummy dish, it was too bland for eating in hearty quantities. I will. Try it again with the tips of other reviewers - maybe garlic, salt, paprika, pepper, and a lower cream cheese-to-corn ratio.
