This baked Green Chili Pimento Corn Casserole is a delicious and easy side dish! It’s all you may already love about corn casserole plus some added flavor including my secret ingredients—pimentos and green chilis! A favorite holiday side dish.

How I discovered this delicious baked corn casserole with pimentos…

I first sampled creamed corn casserole recipe at a work party. And by sampled I mean had 3-4 helpings. ?  It was so good though and I didn’t even feel bad about it because I saw everyone else going back for more too.

This coworker of mine and her hubby enjoy entertaining and have it down to a science. She has spent a lot of time testing out recipes and when she prepares a spread, it’s nothing but dish after dish of awesomeness.

Every year she and her hubby host a picnic at her house and the food is always off the hook. She actually takes the day of the party off in order to prep the 10+ homemade dishes she serves up. It is really a treat. Not to mention her house is amazing with fresh herbs growing in the wooded backyard along with fountains, comfortable seating, great music piped in, a fire pit, grill and probably one of every species of bird that’s in the area because she even has an awesome variety of bird food readily available. Anyway, lucky for me and you, she’s very willing to share her recipes.

Two of my favorite dishes of hers are this baked corn casserole and her Garden Tomato & Cucumber Orzo Salad. I promise neither will disappoint.

What makes this the best corn casserole recipe?

The sweetness of the corn is perfectly balanced out by the subtle heat brought in with green chilis, pimentos and a pinch of cayenne pepper.

Need a casserole dish to make this?

Even if you think you are not in dire need of a new set of casserole dishes, I’m telling you, you are. I love my glass Pyrex casserole dishes but I really favor the look of the white casseroel serving dishes for holidays.

It’s hard to find anymore, but here’s the set I have:

Corningware White Casserole Dish with Lid - set

Shop Corningware casserole dish set on Amazon

The white is just classic makes all food look so nice and that’s important if you’re taking this as a side dish to a party or a pot luck.

You get similar properties of glassware cooking without the yucky staining that happens with glass dishes. They’re a little more fragile but if you’re using them as a baking and serving dish, it’s a nicer presentation.

So, save your glass casserole dish for weeknight dinners and freezer meals. And break out these beauties for a special occasion. Hello, Thanksgiving, Christmas… I’m looking at you.
