    healthy spicy creamy corn with roasted poblanos

    This right here is corn's last hurrah. 

    It is the perfect grand finalé to corn season.  The perfect side dish for that in-between season when you begin to transition from tank tops and iced tea to cashmere and apple cider. When the 60 degree days start to pepper themselves in getting you excited for turning leaves and pumpkin picking.   

    But enough about the weather.  Let's talk creamed corn.  Or better, let's talk healthy creamed corn. I know that you're thinking to yourself: how can something that is creamed be healthy? And the answer is: magic.  Or greek yogurt.  But magic sounds cooler.  

    Greek yogurt is a little trick to get that same creamy consistency that you would get from using sour cream or cheese or something fatty and unhealthy, but instead you are using yogurt which is actually good for you.

    So now I know you're thinking: that is all good, but does it taste as good?  The answer is: ab-so-freakin-lutely.  I promise.  If you made this for your friends and didn't tell them it was "healthy" they'd never know the difference. They would just compliment you on how awesome it tasted.
