I can barely believe Easter is a mere three weeks away.  If you're like me, you're probably just starting to think about your Easter dinner dishes.  I always look forward to our Easter morning church service, family Easter egg hunt at Mom and Dad's, and then our big family meal complete with baked ham, traditional Southern deviled eggs, and more side dishes and desserts than you can shake a fork at.

Now, fortunately for me, I'm not in charge of the big Easter meal ... I still have the pleasure of being spoiled by my Mom on that front.  All I have to do? ... Contribute a side dish or two!

And when it comes to this year's Easter dinner, I've already got a great wow-worthy easy dish in mind, thanks to the help of Del Monte.



With Del Monte's #10MinuteWow dishes, a wow-worthy tasty & easy dish can be ready in just minutes ... bringing 'wow' to any meal ... without any hassle.  Like this Fiesta Cheddar Corn Casserole, which truly takes just 10 minutes of prep.


Inspired by Del Monte's #10MinuteWow Cheddar Corn Casserole, this Fiesta version uses a combination of Del Monte's Golden Sweet Whole Kernel Corn and Fiesta Corn Seasoned with Red & Green Peppers ... ya know, for adding a little kick to Easter {or everyday} dinner.

I also used a mix of cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese, and tossed in finely chopped pickled jalapeno for a bit of heat.  The result?  Creamy corn goodness with just the right touch of spice.

And believe me, Fiesta Cheddar Corn Casserole truly couldn't be any easier to prepare.

Simply drain some Del Monte corn and place it in a baking dish.  Stir in the remaining ingredients ... including lots of cheddar cheese, of course ...

... and then bake it up until creamy and bubbly.  That's it!  I mean hey, there's not even a mixing bowl to clean up.
