Crockpot Southwest Corn Pudding

A delicious side dish for your favorite barbeque!

1/4 cup chopped green, red peppers or chiles
1/4 cup chopped fresh tomato
2 teaspoon fresh garlic
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 16 oz can cream-style corn
4 large eggs
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
optional: garnish with cilantro
Saute garlic and green pepper until slightly softened; add tomato and saute for 1 minute more.
In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, creamed corn and seasonings; add the sauteed vegetables. Lightly grease a 3 1/2 quart crockpot (or a souffle dish which fits in a larger Crock Pot) and pour the mixture in. Cook on HIGH for 2 1/2 to 3 hours; add grated cheese to the top and cook until cheese is melted.  Garnish with cilantro.

Well this does put creamed corn to shame. After this flavorful dish, there would be no going back! I am always battling to get spices to cling to ears of corn, but your dish here is a great way to get some spicy corn and has the bonus of cheese-yum! Well done Claudia!

Your corn pudding will be very popular this summer. It is a perfect side to go with grilled meats.
