  • 4 ears corn, kernels scraped from the cob, or 3 cups corn kernels (fresh, frozen, or canned)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon dried chipotle chili powder *see note
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 red bell pepper, roasted, peeled, seeded and diced
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • *note: jalapenos that have been dried and then smoked are referred to as chipotles. dried chipotle chiles can be ground into a powder and used for seasonings. this medium-size, thick fleshed chile is smoky and sweet and has a subtle, deep, rounded heat. in santa fe, local farmers sell fresh ground chipotle chili powder, but it is also available by mail order from the source guide in my cookbook; foods of the southwest indian nations.
