INGREDIENTS:
  • 4 slices bacon, diced
  • 3 cups corn kernels, frozen, canned or roasted
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and diced, optional
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons milk, or more, to taste
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon sugar, or more, to taste
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

DIRECTIONS:
  • Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add bacon and cook until brown and crispy, about 6-8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Drain excess fat, reserving 1 tablespoon.
  • Add corn, onion, bell pepper and jalapeño to the skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 4-5 minutes. Stir in cream cheese and milk until well combined, about 2-3 minutes. If the mixture is too thick, add more milk as needed until desired consistency is reached.
  • Stir in green onions and sugar; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Serve immediately, sprinkled with bacon.
