INGREDIENTS

Nutrition
  • 1
    large onion, diced
  • 12
    lb bacon (cooked and diced)
  • 8
    ears corn
  • 1
    bell pepper, diced
  • 1
    (4 ounce) can ortega canned chilies (any heat) (optional)
  • 1
    teaspoon garlic
  • 1
    pinch salt and black pepper

DIRECTIONS

  • First, fry the bacon. Let it cool and tear into small pieces.
  • Leave the grease in the pot and set aside.
  • Shuck and wash the corn. Make sure you get all the silk.
  • With a sharp knife, slice the kernels off of the cob. Then keep scraping until you reach the cob to get all the juice and corn.
  • Sauté the onion in the reserved grease until they are clear.
  • Add the corn, bacon, chiles, salt & pepper and the garlic.
  • Simmer over a low heat and stir often so it doesn't stick.
  • When it's heated through, drain the grease if preferred and serve.
  • Note: This calls for fresh corn, but it's super easy to use canned or frozen.
