This is a simple recipe that packs lots of good flavor. We put the dish into a cold oven because we start with frozen corn. Cold contents in a glass casserole in a hot oven can sometimes result in the dish cracking, so we avoid that by putting the cold dish into a cold oven and allowing them to warm up together. It takes a little longer to cook it, but it's worth the extra time.
Ingredients
  • 1 (16 ounce) package of frozen corn
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons cotija cheese, divided
  • 2 teaspoons Tabasco sauce (or to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • Chopped cilantro or sliced green onions for garnish
Instructions
  1. In an oven safe casserole dish, mix together corn, mayonnaise, ½ cup cotija cheese, Tabasco sauce, and lime juice.
  2. Make sure that all ingredients are thoroughly combined.
  3. Smooth the top of the corn mixture and sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons of cotija cheese.
  4. Place casserole in the oven and turn oven to 350 degrees.
  5. Allow to bake for 25 - 30 minutes or until corn is bubbly and cheese on top is golden instead of white.
  6. Top with sliced green onions or fresh cilantro before serving.
