  • 3 cups Frozen corn
  • 2 Jalapenos one finely chopped, one sliced in thin rings
  • 3 slices Bacon cut into strips
  • 1 cup Cheddar cheese split in half
  • 1 cup Heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoon Cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic powde
  • 1 teaspoon Smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp Sea salt


  • Saute the bacon, corn & jalapeno: In a skillet over medium heat, crisp up the bacon. Once the bacon is crisp, add in the finely chopped jalapeño and the corn. Sauté for 5 minutes.
  • Make the sauce: To the skillet, add the heavy cream, cream cheese, and spices. Simmer for another 3-5 minutes.
  • Finish the sauce: Lower the heat to low. Add half of the cheese to the skillet, and combine well so the cheese has melted. Transfer to a baking dish, and top with the remaining cheese and jalapeño rings.
  • Bake: Bake the corn for 10 minutes, and broil for another 3 minutes on high.
