How to make Southern creamed corn

Print this recipe
Southern creamed corn. Does it get any better than delicious sweet corn swimming in a sea of milk and goodness? Whenever company comes over, this side dish is sure to please when it appears at the table. But with all the low-carb gluten-free diets out there, hosts don't always know the dietary needs of their guests. The recipe below swaps out the traditional flour with low-gluten cornstarch.
It's all right there in the name, cornstarch, isn't it? Don't those two just need to go together? Bell pepper is another must-have ingredient. It adds so much color and a little bit of texture to the dish. It's not required, of course, so if you don't have one on hand when a Southern creamed corn craving strikes, make the dish without it. It will still be pretty darned good.
