Chipotle Bacon Corn Salad

Morsels of Life - Chipotle Bacon Corn Salad - Smoky and spicy chipotle combined with sweet corn and savory bacon with garlic and red onion for extra yumminess. Serve as a side, snack, or even a salad topping!

It's SRC time again! Each month, as part of the Secret Recipe Club, we're assigned another blogger. We get to select a recipe from their blog to recreate. This month, I got Micha from Cookin' Mimi. You might remember her from Share Your Stuff Tuesday or Inspire Me Monday. Looking through her blog, I found lots of Southern cooking. The type of stuff I'm sure James wouldn't mind me cooking more of and the types of food I feel I should be more familiar with. I debated between Southern staples like sauteed kale and even further Southern food, like taco potato wedges and corn salsa. Then, I decided to make Jalapeno Bacon Corn. Except I didn't have any fresh jalapenos. I did, however, have some chipotles, which are just smoked jalapenos, so I went with it. And with all the heat and humidity around here, I thought I'd make a chipotle bacon corn salad. Keep the yumminess, skip the cooking! Serve this as a side, or like I did - as a salad topping! This stuff really packs in a big hit of flavor, and we enjoyed it.

Do you prefer the flavor of regular jalapenos or the smoky chipotles?

  4. Oooh! That looks amazing! I like both chipotles and jalapenos, it just depends on my mood and what they are going in. I can see either being great in something like this!

    We are pretty equal opportunity about our peppers here. I have some jalapenos growing in my patio garden I can't wait to use fresh, but I think the substitution of chipotle peppers would add a wonderful smoky sweetness to the bacon and corn. Great choice for SRC!

  6. It definitely does! I didn't expect so much spiciness, but we certainly enjoyed it and hope you do too. :)

  9. I agree! I think jalapenos would make for a lighter and less spicy version, and chipotles make for a smoky and spicy version. Both yummy - just depends on what you're in the mood for. :)

  17. I bet those garden fresh jalapenos would be wonderful here! Maybe you could use a mix for some freshness and some smoky spiciness. :)

  18. Oooh.. I love all things chipotle. I have a picnic to attend in a few weeks and I think this will be one of the dishes I make for it. Great pick! I'm happy to be new the SRC this month - I'd love it if you'd stop by and check out my post.

  21. Love easy recipes like this! I can't take the heat, but I know my boyfriend will love it.

  22. I'm a fan of easy recipes too - life's too short to make complicated recipes all the time! :P You could decrease (or eliminate) the chipotle to decrease the heat. Maybe use bell peppers instead. :) Hope you and your boyfriend can both enjoy!

  26. I think I'd like it with the heat turned down a bit, but hubby's a fan of the spice. We both really liked the smokiness of the chipotles though! Definitely some yummy flavors going on. :)
