When sweet corn is available, I love making this splurge of a side dish. Frozen corn works, but taste as you go and add sugar if needed. —Anthony Bolton, Bellevue, NE

"This recipe is so good and very creamy! The spice of the peppers and saltiness of the bacon really balance out the corn's sweetness. A perfect side to any southwest-inspired meal."

"Made alongside the enchiladas recommended in TOH, and served leftovers alongside tamales. Very tasty!"
