Chevy's corn pudding

Chevy's is my favorite mexican restaurant and I went looking for this corn pudding recipe after a recent trip there. I made it and it tastes just like the real deal.
5 Tbsp margarine (I used butter, but we know Sara will be using margarine. *love ya Sara!*)
1/4 c. masa Harina (like a fine cornmeal, look in mexican aisle)
1/3 c. sugar
1/2 c. water
2 c. corn
1/2 c. cornmeal
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp + 1 tsp milk
Mix margarine, masa and sugar until fluffy. Blend half of the corn and water in blender or food processor until smooth. Combine masa mixture with corn mixture, then add remaining corn, cornmeal, baking powder, salt and milk. Here's the strange part. Place in a 8' sq baking pan and cover with foil. Steam by setting atop a medium sauce pan of water on top of the stove. * see note... Bring water to a boil and steam corn mixture for 50 minutes to one hour. It should not have a cornmean texture, but more of a pudding type consistency..hence the name. :) Keep an eye on the water, you may need to add more. I also found a recipe where you cooked it in the oven. I have tried both methods and the steaming method worked much better. I know it sounds like a lot of work but it's worth it. Yum!


  1. I add vanilla & it's just as good, maybe better than Chevy's.

  2. I also bake mine in a water bath @ 350. It's less work & fabulous taste & texture. Thanks for posting!!!!
