Corn and Poblano Casserole

Corn and Poblano Casserole Recipe

This corn casserole recipe with poblano peppers could not be easier. Do you ever cook with poblano peppers? If not, you really should give them a try — think a milder, more flavorful jalapeño. We’ve used them before to top our Queso Blanco Burger and we’ve tucked some inside our Roasted Peppers and Cheese Tamales. This time, we cooked them with some corn then added a creamy cheese sauce then layered everything between soft flour tortillas for an easy casserole recipe.

Corn and Poblano Casserole Recipe - 1 Progresso Recipe Starters

The creamy cheese sauce is actually from Progresso. You may have noticed one of their new products showing up in your grocery store – their new Recipe Starters. Progresso paid us to develop a bunch of recipes for them, sent the products and let us play a bit. This recipe uses the Creamy Three Cheese flavor.

It’s very similar to Alfredo sauce – in fact, if you can’t find the Recipe Starters, you could make this casserole recipe with your favorite brand of Alfredo Sauce and it would be delicious!

So, after cooking the poblano peppers until soft, adding some sweet corn and of course, the creamy sauce, we layered everything between tortillas. Then, we topped it with cheese and baked in the oven until bubbly.

This casserole recipe is full of flavor and is so easy to make. To add some protein, stir in some cooked shredded rotisserie chicken or deli turkey meat to the poblano corn sauce before layering with tortillas. For a simple side dish, serve the corn and poblano casserole next to a big green salad.

Substitute: If you do not have or wish to use Progresso's Recipe Starters Creamy Three Cheese Cooking Sauce, store-bought Alfredo sauce works very well.

    Progresso Recipe Starters are now in pouches that contain only 9 ounces. I had a difficult time finding the cans and that is why. I wasn’t looking for pouches.

      Hi Jocelyn, you are right … these were sold in cans when we created this recipe. Adam and I are planning to update the recipe to work with the new pouch size.

    Tortillas came out slimy.

    I love roasting the poblano over a burner, putting in a covered bowl or paper bag and then the skins just slip off of them and really add a nice smoky taste. I may just have to try that in this recipe. Looks yummy!

    Do you suppose that this would work – structurally-speaking – with corn tortillas instead of flour?

    • Joanne September 27, 2012, 2:26 pm

      Yes, corn tortillas would be great!
