CorN LoVers UnItE!!

My version of Macque Choux…as usual, based on a recipe and updated to add additional bacon and peppers!!


1 teaspoon hot sauce (I like Piquin sauce from the Latino section of the supermarket!)
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
3 mild & 3 hot Hatch chiles, coarsely chopped
6 ears fresh corn
1 red bell pepper, diced
8 slices bacon, chopped
1/4 cup lager
1 small yellow onion, diced

Saute bacon over medium heat until crispish.  Drain all but 2-3 tablespoons of fat.  Add red bell pepper and onion to pan.  Cook and stir until soft (about 5 mins).  Add lager and deglaze by stirring and scraping all the brown bits stuck to the bottom of the pan.  Continue cooking until lager is nearly evaporated.  Add corn, cream, and hot sauce.  Bring to a simmer and cook until cream is thick enough to leave a trail when a spoon is pulled through (this is called a ribbon).  Add salt, chili powder, and pepper to taste.  Remove from heat & stir in Hatch chiles.

Corn for the unhealthy

Creamy baconny goodness!!
