Combining just a few ingredients, such as corn, yellow rice, Colby Jack cheese, cream of Celery Soup, and jalapeno peppers, you'll be in and out of the kitchen in no time flat.I made a few changes to Aunt Paige’s recipe for Corn and Rice Casserole, and her recipe consisted of 1 package yellow saffron rice, one can of Mexi-corn, one can of Cream of Mushroom Soup, and 1 cup of yellow cheese. Easy Peasy! I made mine using 16-ounces of organic frozen yellow corn, 9-ounces of yellow saffron rice, one can Cream of Celery soup, two fresh jalapeno peppers, and 1 cup of Colby-Jack cheese. Still as easy as pie.

Honestly, the only reason I made the changes I did was that I usually cook with what’s on hand at the house. We always have organic frozen corn, fresh jalapenos, Colby-Jack cheese, and so forth in the refrigerator. The only thing I had to buy was the cream of celery. I decided on the cream of celery is because I thought it might be the right choice of flavor. You can use whichever, or even Cream of Chicken would be good.

He even slapped a good-sized spoonful of Aunt Paige’s Corn and Rice Casserole on his plate at Thanksgiving and ate it! What? Yep, Y’all, he sure as heck did. I could not believe my eyes! Can you believe it? That’s a HUGE milestone in 11 years.

Aunt Paige is a fantastic cook, and she makes some of the best Southern Casseroles you can think of. I may be a tiny bit biased, but in my book, she cooks up a delicious storm, and I sure do enjoy every bite of her food. I will be sharing a few more recipes of hers that I am sure you will love.

Definitely, Southern Comfort food at it’s finest readers.

Off-topic, the other day I was on Facebook and happened to read a post that another blogger published that hit a bit of a sour note with me, the long and short of it was that Southern food was an atrocity, well, I have to differ with him, it’s our culture just like his blog features his cultures foods. My response to this insult, Bless his little heart, we all enjoy our cuisine, and he knows no better.
