Let me just say that my husband does NOT like veggies. Trying to make him eat a salad is almost impossible – but this dish…. Well lets just say I have to fight him for any of it. You get the freshness of the corn, mixed with the creaminess of the cream cheese and butter; a hint of heat from the red pepper flakes. Super easy to make and will be a favorite with any picky eaters. This dish is gluten – free.

Bkyrdmoviemom April 2, 2012 at 4:35 pm

seriously…this was so good and sooooooooo easy! The teenagers commented on it before I even asked! yay! This is a new favorite! Thanks for sharing!


Budget Savvy Diva April 2, 2012 at 6:12 pm

Yay!! I am so glad. It is one of my favorites as well.


karen Carter April 5, 2012 at 2:24 am

Your photo shows 8 ox cream cheese but the recipe calls for 3 oz. Just wanted to confirm the amount before i make this for Easter! Thank you


Budget Savvy Diva April 5, 2012 at 2:49 am

Yes it is 3 oz — I always post the product full before use.


Danielle Swanson April 5, 2012 at 3:50 am

Do you have to put this in the oven and if so, at what temperature do you cook it at?


Budget Savvy Diva April 5, 2012 at 3:56 am

No you do not put it in the oven


Erin Rueff April 8, 2012 at 10:53 am

I am going to try and prepare this before going to church this morning and I ws going to attempt to put it in the crockpot. Do you think that it will work if I just cook it and then put it in there on the warm setting? Thanks for the recipe!


Budget Savvy Diva April 8, 2012 at 12:39 pm

That should work – all you are doing is heating the ingredients together


Kim O April 30, 2012 at 1:38 am

My husband has been making this for years just without the pepper flakes. He seasons with salt and pepper. He always makes it in the crockpot and lets it cook for a while and meld together. Yummy! Make sure to use a crock pot liner for easy clean up!


Lindsey April 9, 2012 at 10:45 pm

Great recipe and easy to make! I made this yesterday for Easter and it was a big hit…who knew a simple corn dish could be a big deal? Everyone loved the subtle addition of “heat” the red pepper flakes brought to the dish. Thanks for sharing this recipe :)


jillb April 11, 2012 at 8:08 pm

My family has been making this recipe ( without the red pepper) for generations! It is a staple for family holiday tables!


Lexie April 20, 2012 at 8:36 pm

Do you eat this as a side, or with crackers or chips?


Budget Savvy Diva April 20, 2012 at 9:03 pm

Any way you want :)


Nicole April 28, 2012 at 7:30 pm

can you use canned corn?


Nicole April 28, 2012 at 7:31 pm

thanks! :) whenever u respond! lol


julie May 1, 2012 at 11:22 pm

A little too cream cheesy for me so I added extra corn and a handful of cheddar. Yum!


Mary Beth Elderton May 2, 2012 at 9:39 pm

I just made this! Wow! I didn’t have quite enough corn, so I used peas, too. Delicious.


Budget Savvy Diva May 2, 2012 at 9:43 pm

I am so glad you liked it :) It is so simply but SO good


Wendy Riddel May 4, 2012 at 6:24 am

Hi, just made this tonight and everybody loved it. I changed the red pepper flakes to sumac and the sharpness of that really hit the palette along with the sweetness of the sweetcorn.
Thanks for the inspiration.

Jenn May 6, 2012 at 5:29 pm

I’m going to try this soon. I got all the ingredients. I don’t have a scale though. How many cups would u say 1 lb of corn is? I’m planning to just put 2 cups. Is that about right?


Vanessa June 8, 2012 at 3:34 am

A lb is 16 oz… A cup is 8 oz, so a lb is 2 cups! :)


Me June 14, 2012 at 6:13 pm

A cup is a measure of volume, not weight ( 1 cup=8 oz water using a liquid measuring cup). For other liquids and solids, the measurement is a function of volume, not weight (1 cup of feathers does not equal 8 oz but it still equals 1 cup in volume). Just be aware of this, otherwise you may end up with the wrong proportions.


Carolyn May 7, 2012 at 1:04 pm

I have been making this for years and we love it. The only thing I do differently is use white corn! It makes for a beautiful, sort of monotone- colored dish and everyone is intrigued when they see it and everyone asks for the recipe. Thanx for sharing.


Sam May 13, 2012 at 7:11 pm

My kind of recipies! Easy, cheap, and YUMMY!! Thanks!


Jerri May 15, 2012 at 8:21 am

Just saw this on Pinterest and had to come over and see. Sounds really delicious!


Paige May 16, 2012 at 1:32 am

I made this tonight and LOVE it…..I added some red bell peppers to it as well. I will definitely make it again.


Budget Savvy Diva May 16, 2012 at 1:40 am

Yay! I am glad that you liked it


Kirsten Van Nest May 22, 2012 at 2:28 pm

My mom and I have been making this for years. We had a little sugar to the Butter and cream cheese. He also add like a 1/2 stick of real butter and a whole pkg of cream cheese. Its amazing. I am going to try it without the cream cheese and see if my son likes it better. He is the only one that its not his favorite.


Leslie May 29, 2012 at 3:00 pm

How many servings does this recipe make?


Budget Savvy Diva May 29, 2012 at 3:12 pm

About 4 – hope this helps


Erica June 3, 2012 at 5:39 pm

I modified it and added cheddar cheese and a little garlic powder and it was outstanding!


Alicia June 7, 2012 at 8:48 pm

I make a version of this recipe in the crock pot! So yummy and super easy!


Nicki June 14, 2012 at 3:25 am

This is very similar to a dip I like to make with Fritos. Corn, butter, cream cheese, and diced jalepeno peppers! Mine goes like this:

1 stick butter
1 8 oz. pkg cream cheese
1 can corn
1/2 cup diced jalepenos

Melt. Dip. Yum.


Regina June 20, 2012 at 11:47 pm

I just made this for dinner w some chicken and it is great! We loved! Seems so simple but has the perfect flavor.


Bren June 25, 2012 at 4:12 am

Thank you for sharing this recipe. Looks delicious.


Brenda June 25, 2012 at 4:13 am

This is corn with a new touch. Sounds wonderful.


Shirl July 10, 2012 at 12:24 am

I have made this a lot and it is great…I didn’t use the red pepper flakes but I will try it.


Trish July 17, 2012 at 6:55 pm

Now I found a use for the left over chile pepper from the pizza place!!


Lu'Trina July 19, 2012 at 6:04 pm

I’m using 2 giant cans of corn about how much cream cheese n red pepper flakes to use?


Jessica September 11, 2012 at 1:13 am

I used three 15.5 oz cans and one pack cream cheese. The red pepper flakes are just to taste.


Megan Burke August 25, 2012 at 10:56 pm

I made this dish except I added elbow noodles, bacon and seasoned salt. My family raved about it!!


Jessica September 11, 2012 at 1:12 am

This was amazing!! I didn’t use the red pepper flakes but I put onion powder and paprika in instead. It was delicious!!!!!!!!


Carolin September 18, 2012 at 1:05 am

Found this on Pinterest & made it tonight…it is THE BEST corn I’ve ever had! Loved it!!


Budget Savvy Diva September 18, 2012 at 2:09 am

Kathy September 20, 2012 at 1:45 am

3 cans of corn
1 8oz. cream cheese
a little butter
chopped jalapeno… (never measure …..just to taste)
microwave until melted & heated… serve with crackers or nacho chips…
I always make this for taco night & it is always a hit…..
Thanks for sharing your version, I will definitly give it a try….


Lindsay September 23, 2012 at 9:11 pm

Sooo thankful for this inspiration. Love the dash of red pepper flake. I also add some bits of onion and roasted red peps. Then sprinkle a tad of shredded chedder or the mexican blend cheese on top. Yum!


JULES October 4, 2012 at 1:47 am

I thought I had made this up! I threw a few things together one evening and it was a hit! My hubs is the same way…HATES veggies! But, he LOVES this corn! I do jalapeno, not red pepper flakes, Mmmmm


Vicki October 21, 2012 at 11:37 pm

The husband Actually said ” this is really good ” and that’s saying something for a guy who isn’t big on veggies !


Janet M October 25, 2012 at 9:49 pm

Just made this for a group and added cooked bacon pieces and cheddar cheese on top!! Mmmm!


Julie November 2, 2012 at 10:37 pm

All I can say is WOW!! Trust me try it!


Molly November 13, 2012 at 6:45 am

I make mine without the pepper & red flakes, instead I add garlic salt! Put it all in a crockpot and let it melt, yum!


Danielle January 26, 2013 at 3:46 pm

I add canned green chiles to mine. Always goes over well at get togethers. :)


heidi May 1, 2013 at 3:13 pm

This was delicious and so simple! Thanks!


debby May 14, 2013 at 8:25 pm

I add a small can of diced green chilis to this corn recipe instead of red pepper flakes, have also added powdered sugar. My family loves it either way!!


Jaimi June 29, 2013 at 10:34 pm

This is so much better than standard “cream” corn! I loved the red pepper flakes as well. Gave it a nice bit of heat.


surkhab July 24, 2013 at 5:03 pm

I love corn and this recipe is so simple and easy to make. tomorrow,I am going to make this corn dish for my Iftar….


Amanda September 16, 2013 at 4:26 pm

I make a similar dish using rotel and it is delicious.
I’d also like to point out that you’re still not getting your husbands to eat veggies by making this dish. Corn is a grain!! Not a vegetable.


Angela January 18, 2014 at 12:27 am

Ever made it with hominy?


vickie April 3, 2014 at 4:49 pm

I make this but I add some cheddar cheese also..mmm mmm good


Cyndy April 4, 2014 at 10:55 pm

I loved this for a change, I get tired of the same old corn :)


Rachael October 15, 2014 at 6:29 pm

We can’t wait to try this tonight!


Brenda April 17, 2015 at 12:36 pm

Very nice dish. All of the family enjoyed this. Will be a regular in our house. Thanks for a great recipe!


Gabby August 4, 2015 at 3:42 am

This was amazing. Thinking of adding chopped bacon next time. Lol
