I love corn pudding almost more than I like cornbread, so I was happy to find this recipe! I made a couple of small changes, reducing the mount of the jalapeno to just 1/3 of a pepper so that there was just a bit more then a hint of hot; using lemon pepper instead of the usual S&P; &, although it isn't exactly a change, I did use a sharp cheddar! I also processed the corn mixture only briefly so that it was very coarse, & what I ended up with was A REALLY GREAT TASTING CORN PUDDING, & a recipe that I'll keep around! Thanks so much!
