Chipotle Cream Style Corn

Plated

Corn is at the peak of it’s Season right now in Colorado and Olathe grows some of the sweetest and freshest corn known around here as, Olathe Sweet Corn! In fact each Year in August, the Town of Olathe celebrates the Community’s Agricultural Jewel by hosting a Sweet Corn Festival! The corn…. “All You Can Eat For Free!” I love seeing all of the planted fields and acres  filled with endless rows of green corn stalks rustling in the wind. I rush to the market; buying ears by the pound! Generally, we like to grill, season and serve, but I decided to change up the flavor, by creating a recipe for Cream-Style Corn. When most people think of cream corn they envision the stuff that comes in a can. This is Nothing like that as cream-style corn is made with freshly scraped corn, butter, cream and seasoning. I used our Chipotle Herb n’ Cheddar Blend as the seasoning of choice. The key to delicious cream-style corn is in the grilling or roasting of the corn first, so don’t skip this step! The sweet and smoky flavor of this cream-style corn is the perfect Summer side dish to any meal!
