A corn casserole is one of those dishes that works well as either a filling meal or as tasty side. And for us, of course, it’s even better when it’s spiced up! It adds an edge to this feel-good food.

Jalapeno Corn Casserole
Delicious jalapeño corn casserole, ready to be served

This is one very versatile dish. For a classic combination, serve it alongside roasted turkey or baked ham. It also goes well with grilled meats such as chicken, steak, or pork. If you’re looking for a vegetarian option, consider pairing it with a hearty salad or roasted vegetables. For a Mexican-inspired meal, serve corn casserole with tacos or enchiladas. It’s also a great side dish for barbecue meals, especially when paired with baked beans and coleslaw. 

The jalapeño peppers bring a light medium heat to the casserole. Control the heat by increasing or lessening the amount you use. Or you could opt for substituting in serrano peppers for a significant spicy upgrade.
