If you’re looking for the perfect homemade summertime side dish, you’ve come to the right place!
This is, hands down, one of our favorite dishes. Summer doesn’t get much better than this. Go with yellow, white, or yellow and white corn, and you can’t go wrong. The sweetness of the corn matches beautifully against the slight heat from the pepper. Side dish perfection!
HOW TO MAKE JALAPENO SWEET CREAMED CORN
As mentioned, you can’t go wrong with whatever sweetcorn you select. We love white corn, but yellow is great, as is yellow and white!
You can substitute milk or half-and-half for the cream, but we’ve got to say, the cream is so wonderful in this dish, for us, it’s worth it!
Be sure to remove the seeds and ribs from the fresh jalapenos to eliminate the extra spice. If you like your dishes with some heat, leave some seeds in.
SIMMER THE SAUCE UNTIL SLIGHTLY REDUCED
Simmering the cream until it reduces produces a luxurious creamy sauce that is just divine.
We love using our trusty cast-iron skillet for this incredible dish.
Just look at this yumminess!
Homemade food is always going to be extra special, and this dish is absolutely no exception.
The corn is so farm-fresh and the simplicity of this Jalapeno Sweet Creamed Corn is truly what makes it shine!
