This is a great recipe! I cook for a group of about 8-10 friends each week and this week I did a brunch theme. This recipe was a hit. I used fresh chilies (diced small) instead of canned and served it with sour cream and fresh guacamole. The flavor is intense but not over powering. I would recommend using fresh corn whenever possible for both taste and texture. As summer fades and good quality tomatoes are not easy to find, I think I'll try using sun dried tomatoes, soaked to reconstitute. You've got to give this dish a try!
4 stars because I deviated from the recipe, 10 stars for ease and taste!!! I left out the chilies and layered the cheese & corn mixture with sliced tomatoes, beginning and ending with cheese & corn (sort of a glorified quiche). I thought it needed a sprinkle of salt. This is DEFINITELY going in my file!!! SOOO GOOD!!!
