Southwest Corn Sauce


Hello Gorgeous Reader!!!  If you came here yesterday looking for crockpot Chicken, I’m sorry, there was no post. A bad thing happened to the crock pot chicken…. and  his name is Pete Spraker


Pete Wanted Poster


I was called away from taking chicken photos and before I could return (insert scary music), Pete had eaten half of my food model. Therefore, it wasn’t any good for our dinner either! Gerald’s Kitchen – in our fair town of Danbury, NC thanked Pete heartily for eating our dinner!


As I said in my Facebook post (find me at Loaves and Dishes on facebook – follow that link button at the top of the page) , if plan A doesn’t work, be cool, there are 25 more letters in the alphabet. Thus, I present to you – Plan B!…. Southwest Corn Sauce! Which was going to be a post for next week anyway.


Southwest Corn Sauce




Southwest Corn Sauce is a delicious and versatile sauce that will set your foodie senses TINGLING! I am SUPER excited about this sauce! I originally made this sauce to zest up some pan fried sirloin steaks (which didn’t turn out too good)  but soon realized that the sauce alone is DELICIOUS on all types of things. Like Shrimp Sauce Yum Yum Sauce – it is good on EVERYTHING!


So far, I’ve tried corn sauce on steak, mashed potatoes, rice and pasta – all DELISH. You can LET YOUR IMAGINATION RUN WILD with this corn sauce!!!

And here is something else – depending on what you eat it with and how you garnish it – it is even (shhhhh ) kind of good for you! You can make it totally vegan or have it as a vegetarian dish only!

  • 4 ears fresh pepper or 4 Cups frozen or 4 cups canned corn
  • 1/8 Cup olive oil
  • 1 medium sweet onion – diced
  • 1 fresh red or green bell pepper or 1 Cup frozen chopped bell pepper
  • 3 TBS chili powder
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • 2 Cups chicken stock Vegan – vegetable stock
  • ½ cup heavy cream Vegan -½ Cup Coconut Cream
  • 3 cloves garlic minced.


  • Cut the kernels off of the corn cob if using fresh corn. Place ¼ of the corn kernels (regardless if frozen, fresh or canned) into blender or food processor and puree until smooth.
  • Heat olive oil in heavy skillet (prefer cast iron skillet) over medium heat, add onions and bell peppers, cook while stirring until onions are soft – about 3 minutes. Add the chili powder and cook, stirring constantly for one minute.
  • Add the wine, chicken stock, pureed corn and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally – boil for about 15 minutes until reduced by ½.
  • Reduce heat to medium, add the cream (coconut cream), corn kernels, garlic and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste. VERY IMPORTANT TO TASTE! Peppers are more/less bitter depending on the season – any bitter taste can be reduced/eliminated by adding more salt.
  • Garnish – use whatever works with your dish – very yummy with scallions, avocado, tomato, sour cream, cheese – your choice!
