This spicy creamed corn recipe combines Mexican spices, green chilies, cumin and cilantro with corn, cream cheese and butter for a spicy, creamy side dish.
Spicy, creamy, amazing. These are the three words I use to describe, what our family refers to as, “Mexican Hot Corn”, I re-named the dish after these words and now call it “Spicy Creamed Corn” although when I return home, it’s still known as our families famous Hot Corn!
