Jalapeño Popper Corn on the Cob

 

Jalapeno Popper Corn on the Cob

Have I got a recipe for you!

 

It’s like two favorite summertime dishes collided and made a beautiful delicacy. Fresh, sweet corn smothered in cream cheese and spicy jalapeños wrapped in slices of bacon. You’ve got it! Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Popper Corn on the Cob.

Um, can anything be better? 

 

Sweet Corn in Husk

I happen to live near Fresno State University and they are famous for their agriculture department. So it goes without saying that they grow some of the best corn you can possibly get in this state. Sweet, plump, and abundant. We eat it at least three times a week during the summer. How can you not when it’s only 25 cents per ear?

Such a bargain!

 

Husk peeled down the corn husk on a cutting board next to chopped jalapenos and cream cheese.

So, the main players in this dish of course are sweet corn, jalapeños, cream cheese, and bacon.

Is your mouth watering yet? Just get ready…

 

I pulled the husks down from the cob but didn’t remove them all the way.  It serves as a convenient handle for wielding the corn directly into your mouth, all while creating a beautiful presentation.

Slather the softened cream cheese onto the corn cob

Start by slathering softened cream cheese onto the cob. 

 

Dot the Jalapeno's onto the corn

Dot with slices of jalapeño. Use your own discretion here, but if you love jalapeños, don’t be shy and load it up!

 

Wrap the bacon around the corn cob

Firmly wrap the entire cob with bacon. I used 3 slices per cob which seemed to be just right.

Wrap the Jalapeno Popper Corn on the Cob in tin foil

Tear off a large piece of foil and tightly wrap the bacon-wrapped corn in the foil several times.

 

Roll the corn cob in the tin foil and pinch the ends of the foil

Make sure to crimp both ends to keep the moisture and heat within so the cob cooks thoroughly and evenly.

Grill low and slow. Our corn took about 45 minutes to fully cook and for the bacon to crisp up.

The end result is wonderful, crackling bacon and jalapeños cooked to perfection! The buttery cream cheese melts into each kernel and acts as a bond to keep the bacon securely wrapped around each cob.  

It’s like heaven on a stick!
