June 2014:  Maque Choux (à la Dolores)

Maque Choux (à la Dolores)

4 slices bacon, fried & crumbled; reserve drippings
8 ears fresh corn, uncooked
2 medium onions (1 yellow, 1 sweet) diced
1 bell pepper, diced
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
pinch of sugar
salt & pepper to taste
2 large fresh tomatoes, diced

Cut raw corn off fresh cob.  With the back side of a knife, scrape down the cut rows of the corn cobs to extract as much of the corn milk as possible to add to the corn kernels.  Set aside.

Saute onions and bell pepper in the bacon drippings.
Add corn, sugar, salt, and pepper.
Add crumbled bacon.
Cover and simmer for about 20 minutes on low.
Add tomatoes, cover, and remove from heat.

Great for summer potluck dinners indoors or out!
