Corn Maque Choux is a traditional Louisiana dish made with corn, bell peppers, onions and cajun spices. Milk or cream is added, making the dish similar to a creamed corn.
Prep Time:10 mins
Cook Time:20 mins
Total Time:30 mins
2 tbsp unsalted butter or oil
1 1/2 cups corn, fresh or frozen
1/2 large green pepper, diced
1/2 large red pepper, diced
1/2 large onion, diced
1 tbsp cajun seasoning
1 cup milk or cream
1 tbsp all purpose flour
Heat a skillet over medium high heat. Add butter or oil.
Add in the corn, green pepper, red pepper and onion and cook for 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until the vegetables have softened.
Add the cajun seasoning and milk and cook for 5 minutes more.
Sprinkle the flour on top and stir it in.
Cook for another 3-5 minutes or until the mixture has thickened.
Milk: We keep 2% milk in the house and I use this if I don’t have any cream on hand. If you don’t have either, but have cream cheese, cut 3 oz. into small pieces and stir it into the mixture until it melts. You can skip the flour in this case.
Cajun Seasoning: Cajun and creole seasoning are pretty interchangeable if your grocery store only carries one.
