This Creamy Corn with Bacon and Jalapenos makes a great side dish a meaty main course, perfect for dinner or a cookout!

Ingredients

  • 4 slices center cut bacon
  • 3 oz 1/3 less fat cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • ¾ cup fat free sour cream
  • 2 oz 50% reduced fat sharp cheddar, shredded (I use Cabot)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon chili powder
  • 20 oz frozen corn kernels
  • 1 medium jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 scallions, sliced

Instructions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees. Lightly mist a 2 QT casserole dish with cooking spray and set aside.
  • Cook the bacon to crisp using package directions and transfer to paper towels to drain. Chop or crumble the bacon into small pieces.
  • Place the softened cream cheese, sour cream, shredded cheddar, salt, pepper, and chili powder in a large mixing bowl and stir together using a spoon or spatula. Once mixed, add the bacon, corn, diced jalapenos, garlic, and scallions and stir until well combined.
  • Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish and bake for 25-30 minutes until heated through. Allow to cool for a few minutes and stir before serving.
