This casserole with corn, jalapenos, and cream cheese is similar to another one on this site, but much better. This side can go with any Mexican dish and many more. I even made it as part of our Thanksgiving dinner.

I use less butter and just make a classic rue and then melt the cream cheese into that. Be careful taking this to family functions though, they will expect you to bring it every time!

Made this first time as stated and it was good, but needed a little tweaking. I have used both canned and frozen corn with good results. It was a little runny when made as written so I do add more flour. I like to use fresh jalapenos with the seeds as we like spicy. For a variation of this recipe I have also added rotel and mozzarella cheese. Good side dish and super easy.

I cut the jalapenos in half, only because I have kids, and added one chopped red pepper that I'd sauteed in a little bit of the butter. I also used FF cream cheese. We liked this. Next time, I'd like to do half sour cream.
