This is an amazing side dish. I often whip this up when making food for church, a sick friend or a new mom. It's one of those easy, cheap and delicious meals. I have another corn casserole dish that I also love. But, this is one of the few that doesn't require cheese, cream cheese or sour cream. I use club crackers. But, I'm sure that you could also use Ritz. It's obviously not a diet food. Yum!
