This is one of my favorite ways to serve corn for the holidays or when I want a special sidedish. This is always the first side to disappear.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (16 ounce) package frozen corn kernels (or 2 of the short squatty cans of Green Giant niblets, drained)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper


  1. In medium saucepan cook corn according to package directions and drain liquid. If using canned corn, just heat it up.
  2. Put the butter and cream cheese in a microwave safe bowl and nuke it for about 1 minute.
  3. Add the butter and cream cheese to the corn. Cook, stirring occasionally, over moderately low heat until mixture is combined and heated through. Serve hot.

I made some Mexican Rice and enchil adas and this sounded like it would go so well if I added the green chilies, so that is what I did, with raving results from everyone here. We will have this again many times with all kinds of things!
