Santa Fe Corn Soufflé


  • 2 cups fresh corn on the cob
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 3 large eggs, separated
  • 1/4 cup roasted, peeled, and chopped fresh green chiles
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Using 2 tablespoons of the butter, grease a 1 1/2-quart soufflé dish. Sprinkle dish lightly with flour to prevent soufflé from sticking. Set aside.
  3. In a medium skillet, sauté onion in remaining butter until soft.
  4. In a food processor, combine egg yolks, onion and corn. Process until corn is fine. Transfer to a large bowl. Stir in chiles and salt.
  5. Beat egg whites until stiff. With a rubber spatula, fold gently, fold gently but thoroughly into corn mixture. Scrape into prepared soufflé dish.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 degrees F and bake 30 minutes longer, until lightly browned and when a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
