INGREDIENTS:
6 slices thick bacon, chopped
1 large poblano pepper, chopped fine
8 ears of fresh sweet corn, cut off cobs
1 1/2 c. heavy cream
1 1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
 
DIRECTIONS:
Over medium heat, saute bacon until crisp about 10 minutes, stirring frequently.  Drain all but a little of the grease (About 1 T).  Add in poblano pieces and stir until tender, about 5 minutes.  Cut corn off cob with knife in bowl.  Using the back of the knife, scrape down the cobs on all sides to remove as much pulp and corn "milk" and pulp as possible into same bowl.  Add all into pan with bacon fat and peppers. Saute about 5  minutes more. Add in cream, salt and pepper and let corn cook in bubbling cream another 5-7 minutes (on low simmer).  Serve warm.
