Baked Corn and Cheese Casserole

Corn and cheese casserole smallThe side of the baking dish is a little dirty. I guess I would not pass the muster for Master Chef and Gordon Ramsey. LOL.. This is super easy and is an excellent summer picnic food. Even great at the end of the summer holiday.

1 bag frozen Corn Kernels or 2 cans (15ozs) drained whole kernels
2 Jalapenos, seeded and minced
1 cup Sweet Onion, diced
½ teaspoon Cumin
Sea salt or kosher salt and Black Pepper to taste
1 cup Cheddar Cheese,  Colby Jack, Pepper Jack, etc
1 package (8ozs) Neufchatel Cheese or Cream Cheese softened
½ stick Butter softened
1 scant cup Panko Bread crumbs

Preheat oven to 350.

Mix all ingredients together and spoon into a cast iron skillet or an 8×8 baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes or until the cheese melts. You can serve this as a side or serve with tortilla chips.
