I made this as directed using fresh garlic & substituted McKenzie's frozen cream white corn for the stuff in the can, personal preference on our part. It was very well received and several commented that some jalapeno's would be good in it. Thanks for sharing this great recipe.
This was a wonderful corn casserole. I sauteed fresh garlic along with onion. I also added fire roasted Hatch green chile that I order from NM and it was tasty in this recipe. The recipe was doubled without any problem. It reminded me of Mexican restaurant's soft spoonable corn bread. Thank you for posting this recipe.
