Ingredients

2 or 3 Hatch green chiles

8 ounces frozen corn kernels, thawed

1/4 cup yellow cornmeal 

1/4 cup all-purpose flour 

2 tablespoons sugar 

1 teaspoon kosher salt 

1/2 teaspoon baking powder 

1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic 

3 large eggs

2/3 cup heavy cream 

1/2 cup cubed mild Cheddar (1/2-inch cubes), plus 1/4 cup shredded

3/4 cup fresh corn kernels (1 ear) 

2 tablespoons unsalted butter 

Directions

  1. Roast the chiles over an open flame until the skins blacken and separate, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Place in a resealable plastic bag to steam for 1 hour.
  2. Peel and discard the skins and seeds from the chiles, then roughly chop in a food processor. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  3. Place a medium cast-iron skillet in the oven and preheat to 375 degrees F.
  4. Puree the thawed corn kernels in a food processor; set aside.
  5. In a mixing bowl, combine the cornmeal, flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and granulated garlic; blend together until combined.
  6. In a second mixing bowl, beat the eggs, whisk in the cream, and then fold in the corn puree, roasted chiles, Cheddar cubes and fresh corn.
  7. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients; whisk together until combined.
  8. Carefully remove the hot skillet from the oven and add the butter, swirling to fully coat the bottom. Continue to swirl gently until the butter is foaming and its milk solids are lightly toasted.
  9. Pour the batter into the skillet, sprinkle with the shredded Cheddar, and then return the skillet to the oven. Bake until the cheese is nicely browned and the pudding is set but not yet firm in the center, about 30 minutes. Allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
