In this novel version of creamed corn, guacamole replaces the cream and butter, and redirects the flavor south of the border. In place of dairy there are piquant chiles, sweet bell peppers, lush puréed avocado, and a spark of cider vinegar and lime.
1 pound frozen corn kernels
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup refrigerated guacamole
2 tablespoons finely chopped roasted red bell peppers,
jarred or fresh
1 tablespoon canned diced green chiles, any heat level
1/4 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
Salt and black pepper to taste
Cook the corn in the water, either in a saucepan or at full power in a microwave, until heated through, about 4 minutes. Combine the guacamole, peppers, chiles, and vinegar in a serving bowl. Drain the corn, toss with the sauce, and season with salt and pepper.
