Sweet Corn Tomalito

Sweet Corn Tomalito

Sweet corn pudding served on the side with many of Chevy’s entrees.  You can use frozen corn, thawed and drained in place of fresh corn, if you can’t find good fresh corn.

6 C. fresh Corn Kernals

¾ C. Milk

¼ C. Butter

½ C. Prepared Masa for Tamales (or use masa harina, reconstituted with milk, according to package directions.

2/3 C. Sugar

¾ C. Cornmeal

¾ tsp. baking Powder

¾ tsp. Salt

¼ C. Milk

Preheat oven to 250.  Blend 3 C. corn kernels and milk in blender until smooth.  Whip butter, masa, and sugar together in a food processor until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.  Combine with all remaining ingredients, including corn puree and remainder of corn kernels.  Mix well and pour into a 9 x 13” pan.  Cover with aluminum foil.  Set pan in a large roasting pan.  Add enough water to reach ¾ of the way up the 9 x 13” pan.  Bake for 1 ½ to 2 hours, or until corn mixture registers 175 on an instant read thermometer and corn mixture is set.  Scoop out portions and serve hot.



Prepared masa can be purchased from a tortilla factory, or in some Mexican markets.
