Elote Con Crema (Fresh Corn With Cream, Chiles, & Cheese)

Again, there are so many variations of corn-chile-cream dishes that is is
hard to know just which recipe to choose. For a change, the chiles could be
left whole, stuffed with corn and cheese, and cooked in cream. But this
combination is delicious any way.

This is a very rich dish, and is very good served as a separate course with
hot tortillas. It is best eaten right after it's cooked, as the cheese gets
tough when reheated.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Melt the butter and cook the onion and garlic, without browning, until they
are soft.

Cut the chiles into rajas (strips), add them to the pan, and cook them,
covered, 8 minutes.

Add the corn, heese, and salt to the chile mixture. Cover tightly with foil
or a lid and let it bake for 20 minutes for frozen corn. If you use fresh
corn, cook for 40 minutes, adding the cheese after the first 20 minutes of
cooking time.

Serve the vegetables hot, with the sour cream.
