Chipotle Corn Skillet

One of my favorite flavors with corn is chipotle chile - smokey and sweet together. Chipotle chile powder is pretty spicy, so if you don't like that kind of heat you can use smoked paprika instead - the idea is to get that smokey flavor mixed with the corn.

Chipotle Corn served with an open faced garden burger.
1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 yellow onion, quartered & sliced into thin half moons
1 clove garlic, minced (optional)
1 lb. of corn kernels, fresh or frozen
1/2 to 1 tsp. chipotle chile powder (or smoked paprika)
1/4 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper

1) Heat the oil in a large saute pan and fry the onion until it's just beginning to brown, 7-10 minutes, then add the garlic (if using) and saute for a minute more.

2) Add the remaining ingredients and toss to mix, saute for an additional 3-5 minutes until the corn is heated through.

This makes about 4 servings.
