Recipe by: Frankie


2 TBSP unsalted butter
1 medium yellow onion, peeled and diced
1 medium green bell pepper, seeded and diced
2 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
3 cups corn kernels (about 4 ears)
3/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 green onion, thinly sliced
1 TBSP freshly chopped parsley


1. Melt the butter in a dutch oven or skillet over medium-high heat. When the butter is melted and hot add the yellow onion and bell pepper. Cook, stirring often, until vegetables are tender, 5 to 7 minutes.

2. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 10 seconds. Stir in the corn, heavy cream, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened and heated through, about 5 minutes.

3. Take off the heat and stir in the crushed red pepper, green onion, and parsley.
