Crock Pot Creamed Corn is a sweet, creamy, and delicious addition to any table!

Creamed corn is a family favorite for us and we love this being able to put this version in the slow cooker early in the day. This recipe goes from ordinary to extraordinary by adding rich cheesy flavor.

Why We Love This

  • It cooks in the slow cooker making it effortless at mealtime.
  • It’s prepped ahead of time (up to 48 hours in advance).
  • You can use fresh, frozen, or canned corn.
  • Blending some of the corn adds a creamy texture without extra starches.
  • Fresh ingredients mean a fresh flavor.

Ingredients

CORN Use fresh corn off the cob, frozen, or canned. We love frozen corn since it’s picked and packed at the peak of freshness.

DAIRY Milk and cream cheese add extra creaminess while sharp cheddar adds flavor.

FLAVOR We love the addition of jalapeno peppers but if you’re looking for a mild flavor, swap it out for a small can of drained green chiles.

Additional flavors can be added with green onions or crumbled bacon if desired.

PRO TIP: When dicing jalapenos, cut them in half from the stem to the bottom with a paring knife. Carefully cut out the pithy ribs and remove the seeds (for a less spicy flavor). Cut each half into another half and then finely dice. The smaller the pieces (and the fewer seeds) the milder the flavor.

How to Make Crock Pot Creamed Corn

  1. Blend some of the corn with cream cheese and milk (this makes it extra creamy).

Tips for Success

  • Use a 4qt slow cooker for this recipe.
  • Ensure frozen corn is thawed before adding to the slow cooker. Place it in a strainer and run it under hot water to thaw quickly.
