This Creamy Confetti Corn is my favorite summer side dish! It goes perfectly with grilled salmon or chicken and makes a wonderful potluck dish to bring to barbecues! This dish comes together in under 30 minutes and everything can be made in one skillet!

This dish is the perfect combination of creamy with a hint of spice. Diced green chilies and jalapeños give this dish a little kick. The cream cheese and milk balance out the flavors so it’s not too spicy.

I love using fresh corn on the cob in this dish. I try not to overcook the corn so it still has a bit of crunch to it. If fresh corn is not in season frozen corn can be substituted. I would add it in after you saute the vegetables.

How to make Creamy Confetti Corn

  • Start by cooking bacon in a large skillet until crispy. Remove from the pan and reserve some of the bacon grease.
  • To the same skillet add in corn, red onion, bell pepper and jalapeno. Saute until tender but still crisp 5-6 minutes.
  • Add in the diced green chilies, cream cheese and milk  and stir until the cheese has melted.
  • Take off the heat and add in the parsley. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately and enjoy!
