Shoepeg Corn & Green Chile Casserole

This is one dish I look forward to every Thanksgiving. My husband's aunt used to make it every year at my request, but since she gave me the recipe, that job is now mine. She got the recipe from a fellow juror while she was on jury duty, but she doesn't know where it originally came from. My family has this every Thanksgiving, but it's so easy and quick, it makes a perfect dinner sidedish. It goes great with ham, chicken and steak. Be careful of this one - it's quite addicting and not for the diet conscious! It's rich, cheesy, a little spicy and absolutely delicious!! I hope you enjoy this as much as my family does.


  1. Melt butter in a large saute pan on medium heat.
  2. Add onions and saute until translucent.
  3. Add corn and green chiles (including juices), stirring until warmed through.
  4. Stir in sour cream, Monterey Jack, salt& pepper and mix well until cheese just starts to melt.
  5. Transfer to a 9x13 casserole dish and bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

Can't believe this...been searching for this recipe for years! I was also on jury duty when a fellow juror shared this recipe!!! I made it once and loved it, then lost it and have searched the internet for it but nothing i found was the exact recipe. Eureka! How weird to read the jury duty part...we might have been on the same case! And by the way, we wound up with a conviction in the case, which I will never forget, but odd that I have also never forgotten about that corn recipe--it's that good!

You got me at my weakest corn and green chiles. South of the border night and wanted something besides tacos. Loved it and so did the rest of my family. Thanks for sharing.

I have a similar dish that uses Orzo instead of corn and I must say using corn is wonderful. We all loved this rich and cheesy dish. It's easy to make and a nice change of pace way to prepare corn. Thanks so much for sharing this, SkysMama.
