Santa Fe Corn Pudding

Santa Fe Corn Pudding

stone-ground cornmeal with fire-roasted sweet corn, green chiles & cheddar-jack cheese

Our take on native-corn-based comfort food, this savory "soufflé" is a blend of both fire-roasted whole kernel and cream-style sweet corn, cheddar-jack cheese, green chile peppers and southwestern spices - with just a hint of maple sugar thrown in to balance flavors.

The prep is easy - just add hot water - and the taste is Santa Fe sublime!

Loved it. Little bit spicy and that makes me happy.

by Brad Lindstrom
Really not very good. I cannot recommend this dish. I really like a lot of their other food, but I will not buy this again.

by Heather Baiman
I liked this ok, the corn adds texture. I highly recommend and prefer the Savory Italian Polenta with Pork Sausage and the West Memphis Grits Souffle instead.

O.K. I'm so Bad! This order was for a clients trip. The box wasn't in my hands two minutes when I opened it and made the Corn Pudding. It was so good, and I don't feel guilty at all! Way to go Packit.

by Ron Mueller
Mmm Mmm Good. It re-hydrated well and needed no addition seasoning to be quite good. Just a touch of spice from the chilies, which I loved, and the textures and flavors blended well. I'll be getting more of this.

by John King
Very tasty and filling. Had it this past week on a rainy morning during a three day trip. It's going to be one of my go to breakfasts going forward

by Thomas J.
This breakfast rehydrates very well. I did give it a few extra minutes, as I was busy doing other things. A nice bit of heat that my wife and I both enjoyed. I agree with the other review about it needing a pack of honey, but my wife believes it is best left without the added sweetness, Personal preference on that, I think. We will purchase this again.

by puppethaze
Very filling, and cooked fast even without a cook cozy (in warm weather). A little bland so I'd suggest bringing some maple sugar or cheese or hot sauce to add.

by Dan
My wife loved this stuff.

by Keith R
Hmmm...very interesting taste. Roasted corn and corn meal with a hint of peppers. Sounds good but to be honest it was not my favorite. Having a name like "corn pudding" I expected something a little sweeter. I think I would have liked it better with a drizzle of honey. Maybe a pack of honey or brown sugar could be included.

by Donald Delahanty
Outstanding! Incredible flavor. Before I took my first taste, I thought I made a batch of cement. Not so! I will always have 1 or 2 of these with me. Unbelievably delicious!!!

by CoreyR
Very good though a tad spicey. I have a hietal hernia and I find Pack-it-Gourmets meals are often a bit too "tex-mex" for me.

by Gabino
I really enjoy the cheese peppers and syrup in the morning - it has a nice kick to get you going. I like it a little bit more runny so I add a little more water. Remember at altitude to let this soak a little longer. You can also try adding some extra sweetness or hot sauce to change it up. It would be great if this came with an extra packet of honey/syrup and hot sauce.

by Marjorie Woodruff
Really good alternative to oatmeal and just spicey enough

Press articles

Warm your insides with this sweet-and-spicy, polenta-based mix loaded with Monterey Jack cheese, jalapenos and maple syrup. This five-minute meal (just add hot water) was a tester favorite on chilly Iceland mornings. "The spice fired me up," declares one, "and with a drizzle of honey, it's heaven!".

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Gluten Conscious?
Gluten Conscious is a term we use to describe a product that is prepared with gluten free ingredients; however, it is not prepared in a gluten-free environment. While we are careful to avoid cross-contamination, it is possible that trace amounts of gluten may be present due to the use of gluten in our facility.
Why is a Cook–in–Cozy™ recommended?

We recommend that all of our hot meals spend time "steep-cooking" while snuggled in a Cook-in-Cozy. We find this method promotes a more consistent temperature and steady cook time for Cook-in-Bag preparation; and results in a better serving temperature for your meal. When not in use, our Cook-in-Cozy folds away nicely in your pack for storage and weighs in at only 1.4oz.
