Recipe by Susie D
A recipe by Texas chef Stephan Pyles. The chile powder required for this recipe is NOT Mexican chili powder which contains other spices. You can easily make your own pure chile powder by grinding anchos (mild), chipotles (medium) or habaneros (hot), or mixing peppers.

Yum! These were really good. I halved the recipe for 2 servings and chickened out on using that much chile powder, lol. I used about 1/2 teaspoon which was plenty of flavor for us. Thanks Susie for a great keeper. Made for ZWT8 - Mexico/Tex Mex.
- 2 idaho potatoes, peeled and cubed (22-24 ozs.)
- 2 1⁄2 ounces unsalted butter
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 3⁄4 cup fresh corn kernels
- 2 teaspoons pure chile powder
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1 teaspoon cilantro, chopped
