  1. Cut corn off the cobs by thinly slicing across the tops of the kernels; place in a medium bowl. Cut across the kernels again to release milk from the corn, add milk to bowl. Set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and green pepper, cook until onion is transparent, about 5 to 8 minutes. Combine corn, tomatoes, and milk with the onion mixture. Reduce heat to medium low, and cook 20 minutes longer, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. Do not boil. Season with salt and cayenne pepper. Lower heat, cover skillet, and cook 5 to 10 minutes longer. Stir in green onions and bacon. Remove from heat and serve.

Really great recipe. Unfortunately, I had to use frozen corn as corn on the cob is out of season here. The bacon and tomato really made the dish and the cayenne put it over the top. Be VERY care...

Turned out great with no modifactions. If/when I make this again I'll dice the onions rather than slice them for the sake of consistency and to make it easier to eat. It went over really well at...

Very good. I used three cups of canned corn, drained, instead of fresh.

This was a great cool-down with a hot Cajun meal. If you're feeling lazy, you can also use bacon bits instead of the real thing.

Great flavor! Especially warm/hot. I don't recommend eating it cold as you lose some of that flavor. Served it with a kilbasa. Yummo!

Loved it! This is a nice twist on fresh summer corn. Followed the recipe as stated and will make again.

I thought it was relatively easy to make, and I got several favorable comments on it, so it must have been pretty good! I did read through the comments and modified the recipe accordingly (diced...
