Spicy Corn Casserole

Seems like the last couple of years that corn has gotten a bad rap. Ya know, the whole GMO thing. A couple of damning documentaries. The fact that it's in pretty much everything one way or another. Yeah, I'd say corn has seen it's share of bad publicity lately. So if you've cut corn out of your diet for one reason or another then read no further. But, if like me, you take an "all things in moderation" approach to diet and corn isn't on your naughty list, you're gunna love this recipe.

I found the original recipe where I'm finding most new recipes lately, Pinterest. Corn is such a great compliment when grilling but I was just getting tired of the same ole corn on the cob and this recipe looked promising. So I tried it. It was pretty good. Only I didn't like that it used Velveeta - processed cheese, yuck. And yes, you've seen recipes on this blog with Velveeta. But only a few and only because, for these few recipes, there's not alternative. But, for this recipe I didn't think it was necessary. I also thought the original needed some pep. Some oomph! It was just a bit blah. My family agreed that it was good but needed something to make it great. So I tweaked, and fiddled and came up with a pretty tasty corn casserole. . .
