    Hey girlie……Do you think this will freeze well? Looks like something I could easily do for lunches at work.

      I haven’t tried freezing it before, but I don’t see a reason why it wouldn’t work? We typically make a batch and then each get 3-4 servings out of it that we rotate for lunch/dinner throughout the week.

    Made this recipe tonight and it was delish! Have made something similar in the past but liked the creaminess of this one due to the cream cheese! Thanks!
    Went with a slight modification and used frozen corn instead of canned. Found it’s more “snappy” and I think it retains more of its nutrients.

      McKena, I’m so glad you liked the meal! We substitute canned/frozen corn all the time. I’ve found they work almost the same and it’s nice to be able to use whatever I have on hand. Thanks for commenting!

    Do you have any substitutes for the cream cheese?

      Hi Nicole! Are you looking for a non-dairy substitute or just something other than cream cheese?
