For the Sauce – A creamy sauce is prepared for the casserole which adds a creamy cheesy texture in this dish. To make the sauce, we will use cream cheese, butter, milk, and parmesan cheese.
Use full fat or whole milk for the best and creamy texture.
Corn – If you have fresh corn available, use the same. If not you can use frozen corn too. If using frozen corn, add them in a bowl of warm water for 5 minutes, discard the water and it will be ready to use.
Bell Peppers – I have used a combination of red and yellow bell pepper, but you can add green bell pepper too.
Jalapeno – Add some Jalapeno for the much needed spiciness.
Cheddar Cheese – The addition of cheddar cheese adds a strong and pungent flavor in the casserole, which is hard to miss.
You can also sprinkle some chives on top with cheese.
Salt & Pepper – To add a little more flavor add in salt and pepper. You can even add some red chili flakes if you like it to be extra spicy.
