Jalapeño Corn Casserole

Filling and spicy…

A corn casserole is one of those dishes that works well as either a filling meal or as tasty side. And for us, of course it’s even better when it’s spiced up! It adds an edge to a kitchen staple.

The jalapeño peppers bring a light medium heat to the casserole. Control the heat by increasing or lessening the amount you use. Or you could opt for substituting in serrano peppers for a significant spicy upgrade.
