This Killer Green Chile Creamed Corn is the ultimate comfort food – rich, creamy, flavorful with a bit of heat and that distinctive green chile taste. Plus you can’t mess it up. This is a big hit in my family.

I was going for a thick consistency and super rich flavor with this. In reality, it’s a very forgiving recipe. If I want to serve it as a soup, I would add milk – a half cup to a cup depending on how soupy I want it. I also thought about increasing the cream cheese, but it’s pretty rich with just one ounce.

The amount of green chiles is definitely a matter of taste. Here it has the distinctive green chile taste and noticeable heat, but it’s not particularly hot. I did add extra green chile on top just for garnish; of course that also increases the heat level.

This recipe keeps well. It’s also a great recipe to take to a pot luck – I’d put it in a small slow cooker and perhaps have small dishes of extra green chiles and Parmesan cheese on the side. Plus I would double or triple the recipe as it will go really fast.

Hope you enjoy this one!
