Instructions

  1. Casserole: Preheat the oven to 350°F. / Remove corn kernels from ears and grind in a food processor. / In a medium bowl, mix the ground corn, oil, eggs, milk, cream, sugar and salt. / Grease a 9x5x3 pan, then sprinkle the breadcrumbs coating the the base. Evenly pour the corn mixture on top of breadcrumbs. / Bake for approximately 30-45 minutes.
  2. Sauce: Place the poblano peppers on a foil-lined baking sheet and cook for 15-20 minutes at 400°F, or until the skin starts to bubble (can cook before or after cooking corn casserole; before might be better then lower oven temperature). / Place the peppers in a plastic bag closed for 5-8 minutes to let cool, then remove and peel the remaining skin off. / Cut the peppers in half and remove seeds. Then continue to cut into strips and thinly slice the onion. / In a skillet, heat oil to medium-high heat and sauté the peppers and onion until tender, approximately 2-3 minutes. Then add the tomatoes, salt and pepper to taste and cook for 10 minutes and remove from heat. Drain excess fluid and let cool 2-3 minutes. / Once corn pudding is cooked, top the sauce evenly distributed. Garnish with cheese and avocado and serve.
