Hot and Spicy Corn

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Helping Hands

This is a great side dish for a variety of main dishes! I serve it at Christmas every year with prime rib and horseradish, which is a great combo, because the zingy taste of this dish works so well with the horseradish. It is not as spicy as it sounds -it's actually a nice, mild spiciness, but the green chiles and cream cheese really jazzes up corn (I have also made it with jalapenos to spice it up a notch). Posted upon request! :-)

Oh so yummy! Easy and fast too. I had 1/2 pkg of cream cheese, 1/2 can of green chiles and 1/2 cup shredded cheese in my fridge when I came across this recipe today. The only thing I was missing to make 1/4 recipe was a can of corn but I did find a partial bag (10 oz) of frozen corn in the bottom of the freezer (which worked great.) lol Mixed this up and it was a perfect use for all those leftover bits in my fridge & freezer. Delicious! I will be making this one again for sure! Thanks so much for the recipe!
