Mexican Creamed Corn

4 Serves

Jalapeno and cilantro make this south-of-the-border side perfect for backyard cookouts. Low-fat yogurt is a healthy way to add tang and creaminess.


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 jalapeno, finely chopped

  • 1 shallot, finely chopped

  • 4 ears corn, kernels and pulp scraped

  • ½ cup low-fat plain yogurt

  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 3 tablespoons crumbled feta

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro


  1. In a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium and cook jalapeno and shallot, stirring, until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add corn kernels and pulp and 1 cup water. Cook, stirring, until corn is tender, 5 to 7 minutes.

  2. Remove from heat, stir in yogurt, and season with salt and pepper. Top with feta and cilantro.
