Ingredients

  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • ½ cup chopped celery
  • ¼ cup chopped bell pepper
  • 1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups fresh corn
  • 2 cups french style green beans
  • 2 cups cream of celery soup
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 stack Ritz crackers crushed

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Spray a 8"x12"x3" casserole with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Put green beans in a small pot with a cup of water and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and cook until tender, 3-5 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  • Put corn in a small pot with a cup of water and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and cook until tender, 2-3 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the onion, celery, bell pepper, cheese, corn, green beans, cream of celery soup, sour cream, salt and pepper.
  • Pour into prepared casserole.
  • Melt butter and mix with Ritz crackers. Spread evenly on top of the vegetable mixture.
  • Bake for 60 minutes to 75 minutes, until bubbly.
  • Cool slightly before serving.

Notes

Substituions:
  • You can use canned vegetables instead of fresh.
  • Canned cream of celery soup can be use instead of homemade.
  • You can add chopped jalapeños peppers for a subtle spicy kick.
Expert Tips:
  • If you're using fresh ingredients then you will need about 3 ears of corn, 1/2 of a small onion, about 1/4 of a medium sized bell pepper, and 1 large stalk of celery.
  • This casserole freezes beautifully! BUT don't add the Ritz cracker topping until you are ready to cook it.
  • If you use a different sized casserole, the baking time will vary.
  • The sides will bubble when baking. You may want to put a sheet pan under the casserole to make sure it doesn't make a mess in the oven!
  • To know when this casserole is done, it should be set and not jiggle when cooled.
