Mexican corn

I would put jalapenos into everything if I never shared food with others. I love a little extra zing in my food. Or a lot of extra zing, depending on what I am eating.

I brought this corn dish to Thanksgiving dinner this year, along with a non-spicy option. It went over well! Most people (kids excluded) at least tried it. A few people said they loved it and much preferred it over the non-spicy version. I absolutely adore this recipe. It is my favorite way to eat corn, aside from maybe sweet corn on the cob doused in butter and salt.

In a medium saucepan, combine:

One 32-oz. package frozen corn

One 8-oz. package cream cheese

1/2 cup butter

1 teaspoon garlic salt

2 diced jalapeno peppers (or more, or less, depending on how spicy you and your guests like it)

Cook over medium heat until heated through, stirring constantly.

Be sure to warn people about the heat before they dig in!

I searched the net for hours the other day to find a recipe like this, but couldn't find one, and here it is! I ended up making the same 'ole scalloped corn I always make. My cousin brought this to a family gathering over a year ago, without the jalapenos, and it was awesome! My husband loves anything with jalapenos in it! Thanks for sharing! Can't wait to use your recipe next time!
