Shoepeg Corn Casserole
Shoepeg Corn Casserole is awesome! It’s a wonderful corn casserole recipe made with a cream cheese sauce and diced green chilies to give it a little bite. It also quick and easy to assemble. I find it cooks better by making only a single batch at a time. The original recipe doesn’t seem like it would make enough for a lot of servings, but it really does.
I got this recipe from Mylia Roan a few years back when she and her husband were directors for our young couples’ Sunday school class. I’m pretty sure it is a family recipe. Mylia brought this to a potluck one day and I had to have the recipe.
I probably have close to 10 really good corn casserole recipes and didn’t need another, but I couldn’t resist this one with green chilies. I think your family will like it too.
When I initially posted this recipe in August 2012, I had only been blogging about 2 months. I had a poor camera and my presentation was awful. On top of that the casserole turned out on the soupy side which I’ve since corrected.
I’ve recently taken some new pictures (July 2014) so you can more adequately see what this recipe is supposed to look like when finished. I also have an additional recommendation: if you make a double batch of this recipe (which I usually do), make it in TWO 9×9″ pans rather than trying to cook it in a 9×13″ baking dish.
It seems to cook to the correct consistency this way. Otherwise you will have to cook it about three times as long and the recipe can still turn out soupy. Not sure why. But every time I make it in the smaller baking dishes it turns out fine.
Additionally, this is a fantastic casserole for holiday baking, plus it’s so quick and easy to make up. In the middle of all the bustle of the holidays it’s nice to have a few comfort food dishes that only take a few minutes to prepare!
