Spicy Creamed Corn

2 T. unsalted butter
1 large yellow onion, chopped
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped
1 small red bell pepper, cored, seeded, and finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
2 10 oz. boxes frozen corn kernels
1 T. flour
1 ½ c. chicken stock/broth
½ c. heavy cream
¼ c. fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 T. chopped fresh cilantro

Preheat skillet over medium-high heat with 2 T. of EVOO and butter.
Add the onions, jalapenos, bell peppers, chopped garlic, corn, salt and pepper.
Cook for 4 – 5 minutes, or until the onions are tender.
Sprinkle with the flour, and continue to cook for 1 minutes.
Whisk in the chicken stock and heavy cream.
Bring the corn up to a simmer and then lower the heat to medium low and cook until it is thick and creamy, about 5 minutes. (I for some reason have to cook it longer and add more flour to get it thickened)
Finish the spicy creamed corn with the parsley and cilantro. Taste and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper.
