Simple Southwestern Mashed Potato Cornfetti Casserole #SP5

"Official Contest Entry: Simply Potatoes 5Fix. Corn and Mashed potatoes are a marriage made in culinary heaven. With just 5 simple ingredients you can turn that medley into a bold side dish with flavors of corn, mashed potatoes, pablano and red peppers, sour cream and chives that pairs great with steak, pork or chicken. I created this dish due to my family always mixing their corn into the mashed potatoes."

I don't think there's anything better than spending time with family and friends and enjoying delicious food together. I just love food. I love reading about food, writing about food, cooking food and.. not surprisingly, eating food. My latest passion is food-photography! I'm still learning a lot, but I'm trying to post photos with all my recipes and reviews. I read recipe books, magazines and food blogs like novels. I get such satisfaction when someone enjoys a meal or dessert that I have prepared. It is the biggest compliment to me when my family and friends rave about my cooking. There are so many terrific recipes on this site. If I'm looking for something, I'm sure to find it here. I do have stacks of my own favorite recipes which I am slowly but surely getting in my cookbooks here . I have had so many awesome reviews and fabulous photos taken of my recipes... I try to thank everyone personally .. I sincerely appreciate each and every review and or comment left. I know it takes time to photograph and upload photos - So I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for finding and trying my recipes and taking the extra effort...
