Before we get started, let’s take a look at the ingredients.

  • 2 jalapeños [$0.19]
  • ½ tsp. pepper
  • ¼ tsp. salt

The corn casserole has to cook for two hours in the cooker, which makes for a total time of 2 hours and 10 minutes. The cheesy corn casserole recipe is both simple and inexpensive with an average cost of only $1.15 per serving.

Cooking instructions

The instructions for this slow cooker corn casserole are extremely simple.

First of all, add all of the corn to the slow cooker. Next, add the shredded sharp cheddar cheese and diced jalapeños. Be sure to remove the seeds of the jalapeños before chopping them. Spice things off with onion powder, pepper, and salt.

Cut the creamed cheese into little cubes and add them to the slow cooker as well. Don’t mix them with the rest of the ingredients, but leave them at the top. This will allow the creamed cheese to melt, which makes it a lot simpler to mix afterward.

Set the slow cooker setting to “high” and let it cook for two hours.

After these two hours, stir the entire corn casserole well and a creamy sauce will begin to form thanks to the melted cheese. If you’d like, you can serve with a bit of diced jalapeños on top.

Optional: if you’re a big fan of vegetables, you can also add a medium-sized chopped tomato and a green bell pepper. This will not only add some extra taste and flavor into the mix but will also give the casserole a more colorful presentation.

Serve hot and enjoy!
