Not So Creamed Corn

My husband likes creamed corn, but it is difficult finding a recipe that doesn’t include sour cream or mayo, so here is my take! The addition of the chili powder gives it a nice kick.


1/4-1/2 cup half and half

5 ears of fresh corn, kernels removed*

2 tbs of butter

1/4-1/2 tsp of chili powder

1/8 tsp of salt

Fresh cracked pepper


Melt butter in small sauce pot over medium low heat. Add the rest of ingredients. Turn heat to medium-high until sauce begins to bubble, then turn heat to medium and let simmer for 10-15 minutes until sauce has thickened and reduced by at least 1/2. Serve!

*Boil ears of corn in a large stockpot for ten minutes, then remove kernels after corn has cooled slightly. You can also use leftover grilled corn which would be yummy.

  1. I use leftover corn on the cob, scraped, and just saute it in a skillet with a little butter and half-and-half (or cream), salt and pepper to taste. Very easy and tastes great. My Mom had a more involved recipe for this called Fresh Fried Corn, but I like my simple version.
