This makes a nice creamy corn dish. I only made half of the recipe...it turned out fine. I think it would do just as well without the bread crumb topping and I did substitute a sweet white onion for the green, that worked out just fine too, all that was missing is the green color.

Okay, I'm going to have to text this recipe to my eldest who adores Mexican food. Wait! I don't have texting. Then I'll have to arrange it in a configuration using the g'babes magnetic letters on the fridge. It's so much friendlier anyway. Made for ZWT#8~Mexico/Tex-Mex.
Wow, was this good! My husband and I loved it. I didn't have the green onions so I skipped that part, but will add it next time. I used 1/3 less fat cream cheese and full fat sour cream, but next time will try it with light sour cream. I used cheddar cheese and garlic & herb bread crumbs. I broiled the top a bit to melt the cheese and crisp the bread crumbs a little more. I will be making this again & again, it's a MUST TRY!! Thanks lazyme!
