  • 4 slices bacon
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 Tablespoon diced jalapeno
  • 1 cup diced frozen onions and bell peppers
  • 16-20 ounces frozen whole kernel corn
  • 1-2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream


  1. Dice bacon and cook in a large skillet over moderate heat until crisp. Drain grease.  I used pre-cooked heat and serve bacon so there wasn't really any bacon grease left

  2. Add butter, onions and bell peppers, and jalapeno to skillet. Cook until the onion begins to soften

  3. Add corn and Cajun seasoning to skillet. Cook for 10-12 minutes or until the vegetables are softened and heated through

  4. Add the heavy cream and heat through. Serve warm
