  • Summary

    Chipotle chiles and pepper jack cheese bring the perfect note of heat to this creamy casserole. Good quality frozen corn makes a big difference here, as some brands tend to be starchy with little flavor.

    Ingredients

    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more for baking dish, plus 6 tablespoons melted and cooled
    • 1 1/2 cups chopped yellow onion (from 1 large onion)
    • 1 cup chopped green bell pepper (from 1 large pepper)
    • 1 tablespoon minced garlic (from 3 cloves)
    • 1 chipotle in adobo, minced with liquid (to equal 1 tablespoon)
    • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
    • 4 cups frozen corn kernels, preferably organic, thawed
    • 1/4 cup fine cornmeal
    • 2 cups shredded pepper jack cheese
    • 1/2 cup heavy cream
    • 6 large eggs
    • Salsa, cilantro sprigs and sour cream, for serving
