Jalapeno Creamed Corn The HopelessHousewife

Creamed corn has been one of my favorite things to eat since I was a kid. I didn’t get this version though, I ate the one that came from a can and was NOWHERE near as good as a homemade version (thanks, mom! 🙂 ). I roast the corn to give it some extra dimension then  the jalapeño adds great flavor along with some heat. If you are not a fan of spicy foods, omit the seeds. If you are a spicy tamale like me, then heat it up with more of the jalapeño seeds. Serve this Jalapeño Creamed Corn with a yummy steak or chicken and you will have some happy tummies in your hands at your house. Enjoy! xE
