Thanksgiving has never been one of my favorite holidays. I am thankful for all the wonderful blessings in my life, but I really don’t like a lot of the Thanksgiving foods and I don’t like big meals. I’ve never cooked or done much to contribute to the meal in the past, but since I have started cooking a little bit, I decided to bring a side dish. I don’t think I will ever be as brave as my sister who has the same cooking ability as me, but managed to cook an entire turkey by herself. Not only did she cook it herself, it was one of the better turkeys I’ve ever eaten! I was really impressed!!
Everyone also seemed to be really impressed with my jalapeño cream corn dish. We were so hungry before everything was ready that people started eating it as a dip with crackers. It made for a wonderful appetizer AND side dish!! I found this recipe on my favorite website, pinterest. Thank you to Blogher for posting the recipe AND for getting pinned!
3 cans of corn (drained)
1 stick of butter (room temperature)
1 block of cream cheese (room temperature)
3 Jalapeños (Cut and cored, remove all the seeds to get rid of the kick)
2 cups of sharp cheddar cheese
