Low calories cheesy Corn Casserole

Low calories cheesy Corn Casserole


  • Frozen sweet Corn: 1 bag
  • Cheddar Cheese Soup: 1 can
  • Onion, sliced as rings or fries: 2 cups
  • Milk: 1/4 cup
  • Chopped green chillies: 1 can
  • Melted Butter: 1 tablespoon


One of my absolute favorite snacks is simply buttering up some corn and adding plain salt while I eat it warm. Corn in anything is always a great ingredient. I feel like it s one food item which is equally loved by vegetarians, meat lovers, vegans, I mean, by simply everyone. These sweet and soft nibbles are just a blessing from the god of food or taste (if there is any). Recently I started watching my weight because I have been out of the dating scene for a while but circumstances are such that I found myself back in the game. This pushed me to look not only beautiful but also be fit. Let me tell you guys and girls, dating is turning tough every single day. The keeping fit part is also not getting any easier.

As long as the snack is home cooked, like my simple snack that I just talked about, keeping my weight in check is not a big deal. But dating forces you to get out and eat out of home, especially if you are not the best of the cooks on the scene. The number of dishes that are available as an option when you are eating out simply upsets the whole game of keeping fit. You might cut into this monologue at this point and say but you can always eat salads. Well, I cannot and even if I absolutely have to I would rather at least come back to my place and fill up before I can sleep peacefully.

Do you understand now how keeping fit is increasingly becoming a problem? I am basically doubling the amount of calorie intake although I am only eating the same amount as I used to. This is because I am eating the same meal twice. Since I cannot always control the number of calories when I am eating out, I had to put a check on the number of calories that my home cooked food was adding to the pile (which is me, here). I started looking for options in ingredients using which I did not have to compromise on the taste and I could also reduce my calorie intake. Also, let me add here that I like some chilly in my food so bland salads just don’t do it for me.

I have come up with a chili corn casserole recipe that is seriously low on calories and fits my unique eating agenda perfectly. This low calories corn casserole recipe instead of using the cheese (As is commonly used) uses the cheddar cheese soup. For reducing the calories further, use a condensed soup if you can. I like my onions sliced as thin as possible so that after baking and with the slight butter that I am going to add to this corn casserole recipe, it becomes tender and melts in my mouth along with the corn.

The process of cooking is very simple. Let us get started; I have listed the steps as I do it. I hope you enjoy the cooking as much as me:

  1. You need to heat up your oven. Set it to 350 degree F. the best way to check whether your oven is hot enough or not is by using a specially designed thermometer for ovens, you can get one from the supermarket. I find this little magic thing helps my dishes become perfect.
  2. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl but add only half of all the onions. Fry the remaining onions in a skillet separately.
  3. Bake this mixture in the casserole dish for around 30 minutes and once you see bubbles forming the dish, take it out of the oven and quickly add the friend onions on the top before you pop it back into the oven.
  4. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes and take the dish out as soon as the top layer of onions becomes a beautiful light brown.

Serve hot! Enjoy.
