Southwest Corn Pudding

Updated on August 2, 2014

I am not kidding when I say that this is one of the easiest recipes ever invented! Mix up the corn pudding in one bowl, add the toppings and you are good to go. We need to get one thing straight though, Southwest Corn Pudding is not a traditional pudding as in "dessert". It's more of a savory corn casserole with a touch of sweetness and oh, the gooey cheese!

Serving Size

Serves: 6


  • Pudding:
  • 8.5 oz. box cornbread or muffin mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 14 oz. can cream style corn
  • 1 small can chopped green chiles
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Topping:
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 small can sliced jalapenos, drained


  1. In a large bowl, combine all pudding ingredients, mixing well.
  2. Pour into a 9 x 9 inch pan prepared with cooking spray.
  3. Top with remaining cheddar cheese and with jalapenos.
  4. Bake at 350F. for 45 -50 minutes or until bubbly and slightly firm to the touch.

I love glass storage because it does not harbor food odors.

      @ecogranny: It has a texture all its own. Much more moist than cornbread but not as dense as polenta.

      Mmmm. That looks seriously good. Would you say the texture is more like a polenta or more like a cornbread?
