Chili Cheese Corn

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 15 min.


6 servings

“I got this yummy corn recipe from a co-worker more than 10 years ago,” writes Nadene Melton from Euless, Texas. “It’s so easy and tasty that it’s become a favorite in our family—especially for holidays or special meals. I’ve had many requests for the recipe.” TIP: To turn Nadene’s creamy side dish into a convenient meal, simply add cooked chicken, beef or shrimp. Serve with a leafy tossed salad and crusty loaf of bread.


  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 cups fresh or frozen corn, thawed
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  1. In a large saucepan, combine cream cheese and butter. Cook and stir over medium heat for 4-5 minutes or until smooth. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Cook for 5 minutes or until heated through. Serve with a slotted spoon.

    I fried the corn in a bit of butter with the dry seasoning, then added the cream cheese, green Chile and butter. OMG YUM! We just like fried corn and love the texture it added. Super easy too!

    I love this! Super easy to make and taste great! I used roasted corn & fresh roasted green chili and it was amazing.

    I used fresh green chile (hot) & added sauteed onions and small chunks of butcher fresh ham for a bbq side dish last night. It was a hit and completely gone!

    This was delicious. I was a little afraid that it would taste like creamed corn, which I do not like at all. I was happy that it had it's own unique flavor.

    If you go to a potluck and everyone brings a vegetable, but yours is the only one with numerous recipe requests, well, I think that about says it all. Tasty, easy and quick. Do try it!
