This was inspired by a recipe in the Sweet Potato Queens cookbook but its so different now I decided it needed a new name :) I serve it with warm tortillas or cornbread and turnip greens.

Nice change of pace for corn casserole. We really enjoyed the saffron-seasoned rice combined with the corn mixture. Nice and filling -- served this dish with a pecan-crusted chicken breast and a side salad. Will definitely make again. Made for Spring PAC, March, 2013.

Excellent dish! I added some cut up ham to make it an all in one casserole. We loved it!
