  • 24 ounces frozen corn kernels (4 cups), thawed and drained, at room temperature, divided
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 can (4 ounces) Hatch green chiles, diced
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups grated Monterey Jack cheese (6 ounces), divided
  • 5 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Puree 3 cups corn in a food processor. Transfer to a large bowl, and stir in remaining cup corn, the salt, scallions, chiles, flour, and 1/3 cup cheese. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs and cream just until combined. Stir into corn mixture.

  2. Place butter in an 8-inch square baking dish, and place in oven until butter is melted, about 10 minutes. Pour batter into hot baking dish, and sprinkle top with remaining 1 2/3 cups cheese. Place a baking sheet on lower rack to catch any drips, and bake until puffed and bubbling and cheese is golden brown, 45 to 50 minutes. Let cool 30 minutes before serving.

    I made this as a side dish for a summer time family BBQ and it was a total hit! I used frozen corn and only had 4 whole eggs and it still was amazing. I also found some hatch chile monterey jack cheese and it enhanced the flavor nicely. Will definitely make this again! No leftovers!

    I made this for Thanksgiving and it was so good, I loved it!! I made half the recipe and used a 7 ounce can of green chiles.

    Unbelievably good and easy to make! I made this for Thanksgiving so doubled and used Hatch chilies from our annual family chile roast. This dish travels easily-I put it together in an aluminum pan (no butter/hot casserole dish), adding the eggs/cream mixture just before putting it into the oven about an hour before dinner. Definitely a bit hit with a request to add as a regular T-Day side.

      Update 2014: I made this using Pepper Jack cheese to give even more of a kick. Fabulous!
