Jalapeño Corn Casserole

Jalapeño Corn Casserole is a side dish that I have been making for a number of years, and the recipe is one that is often requested when I serve it. I had family visiting from out of town over the weekend, and I served this along with Baby Back Ribs, Southern Baked Beans, Coleslaw,  Deviled EggsYeast Rolls, a Vegetable Tray, and Oreo Cheesecake.



Jalapeño Corn Casserole
1 cup rice
1/2 cup butter
1 onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 cup chopped celery
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
2 (14.75 ounce) cans cream style corn
1 cup shredded mild cheddar cheese
2 jalapeño peppers, chopped

Prepare rice according to package directions; set aside.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
Melt butter in a skillet; saute onion, green pepper, and celery. Combine the cooked rice and sauted onion, green pepper, and celery in the prepared baking dish. Add salt, sugar, corn, cheese, and jalapeño peppers; mix well. Bake in preheated oven for 40 - 45 minutes.

Chop onion, green pepper, and celery; saute together in butter.

Mix rice, onion, green pepper, celery, salt, sugar, corn, cheese, and jalapeño peppers together in prepared baking dish. This will make a nice big casserole to serve a crowd, and if you need to stretch it a little farther, just add an extra can of corn.

Bake at 350 degrees for 40 - 45 minutes.

This Jalapeño Corn Casserole is a versatile side dish that can be paired with a variety of meats. My family loves it.

  1. Now, that's a good recipe! It reminds me of a cross between some of my favorite things-corn dip and broccoli rice casserole. I'm definitely going to give this one a try. Thx for sharing.

    1. Hi Missy, Yes, the 9x13-inch casserole dish is the right size for this recipe. I re-measured the dish in the photo to be sure, and it is 9x13. This casserole is a good one for a crowd! I hope you enjoy it.

  17. I'm astounded because the casserole dish in the picture isn't oblong like a 9x13 is shaped. it appears to be closer to a 9x9. Thanks for your prompt reply!

    1. Hi Missy, The dish may look smaller due to my lack of photography skills. I added a couple of photos at the end of my original post so you can see the dish size. I think a 9x9-inch dish wouldn't hold all the ingredients in this recipe. Happy Thanksgiving!
