Jalapeno Cream Corn
Today I’m sharing with you this easy Jalapeno Cream Corn Recipe!
It’s rich and creamy, with a lil’ heat from the minced jalapenos! You can easily adjust the heat by adding or removing the seeds and membranes of the jalapenos (leave them out of less heat, add them in for more heat).
It’s super quick and easy to make but *so* good on top of being a great way to spice up creamed corn!
Let’s get started!
Full measurements included in the recipe card below 🙂 .
- Corn. You can use fresh, frozen and thawed, or canned corn for this recipe. I usually stick to canned as it’s quicker and easier. If you do use canned corn, make sure to place it into a colander and rinse it under running water to remove as much of the liquid as possible (it’s mostly preservatives and other substances).
- Jalapenos. Add the seeds and membranes for more heat, or remove both for less heat, then mince the jalapenos!
- Heavy cream. Please stick to heavy cream for best flavor and texture.
- Butter. I recommend unsalted butter.
- Sugar. Optional!
- Salt and pepper. To taste. I like to use freshly cracked black pepper for extra flavor and heat.
- Milk. I recommend full-fat for extra richness but low-fat will work too.
- Flour or glutinous rice flour. You can use all-purpose flour or glutinous rice flour if you’re gluten free. I tested both options and I like both. Glutinous rice flour is also known as sweet rice flour and can be purchased on Amazon (they carry Mochiko which is one of the most popular brands) or at your local asian grocery store.
How to make jalapeno cream corn
Step-by-step instructions included in the recipe card below 🙂 .
- Prepare the corn. Add the corn, jalapenos, heavy cream, butter, sugar (if using), salt, and pepper to a skillet. Stir to combine and cook.
- Whisk together the milk and flour or glutinous rice flour. Make sure the flour or glutinous rice flour has dissolved before pouring the mixture into the skillet or you may end up with lumpy creamed corn. Pour the mixture into the skillet and mix.
- Cook until the sauce has thickened and the corn has cooked. Cooking time may vary depending on whether you’re using fresh, frozen and thawed, or canned corn. If you’re in a rush, use canned corn.
Can you store cream corn?
Yes! You can store your jalapeno cream corn in an air-tight container or in a bowl covered with plastic wrap in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. I don’t recommend freezing.
Reheat in the microwave or on the stovetop. You may need to add a splash of cream or milk to keep it from becoming too thick.
HAPPY COOKING!! I hope you’ll love this Quick and Easy Jalapeno Cream Corn as much as I do!
