more corn

Poblano and pasilla chilies are abundant in the farmers markets right now, and I love to combine them with fresh corn for a side dish.

Chili Corn

2 teaspoons olive oil

2 pasilla chilies, seeded and cut into ¼-inch dice

1 medium yellow onion, in ¼-inch dice

½ teaspoon salt

1-1/2 cups corn whole kernel corn, either fresh cut off the cob, or frozen

¼ cup heavy cream

pepper, to taste

In large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add chilies, onion and salt. Cook until chilies and onion begin to soften. Stir in corn, cook 5 minutes longer. Add heavy cream, and stir to coat. Season with pepper. Serves 6.

I love to serve this as a side for fish tacos, and there is still great halibut in the market!

  1. This looks fabulous. The combo of the onions pasilla chilies and corn. I wondered how it would taste if you grilled the corn first.
