Reviews for Creamy Corn Casserole
"My family loves this recipe. We had a couple of cups of it left over from Thanksgiving. I added a 16 oz. can of chicken broth, some more red pepper (I would have used a can of green chilies, but I didn't have any), and about a cup of diced turkey. Let it heat through on low in the crock pot for about 4 hours. Made great corn chowder."
"Ironically, the water chestnut are what drew me to this recipe, and that's what I disliked! The red pepper, celery and onion were a good combination. Wish I'd left out the water chestnuts."
