    I made this for lunch and loved it - think I added a tad too much cayenne and will need to tone it down for the kids . - 4/15/09

    Very yummy! I left out the hot stuff because I have a 3-year-old, then we added Tabasco sauce individually at the table. Very good! I halved the recipe, and it worked out just fine (now I have a half-can-worth of creamed corn in the fridge). My husband stirred some plain yogurt into it. - 9/26/07
