1, 15 1/4-ounce, can whole kernel corn, drained
1, 14 3/4-ounce, can cream style corn
1, 8-ounce, package Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, stir together both cans of corn, corn muffin mix, sour cream, and melted butter. Pour into a greased 9 x 13-inch casserole dish.
Bake for 45 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and top with cheese. Return to oven for 5 to 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Let stand for at least 5 minutes and then serve warm.
