Spicy Fried Corn with Bacon and Chipotle

So this is really good. Not sure why it took us so long to have, but we need to have again.

When I plugged it into myfitnesspal, I got vastly different NI than what Amy got.  So I'll post both.  We had with Beer Can Chicken.

Amy's Notes: I have made this recipe with fresh and frozen corn and it was excellent both ways. I only used 3 pieces of bacon, and extra chipotle, we like the heat. The serving size is small (about 1/2 cup). I doubled the recipe and it still went quickly.

4 ears corn, shucked
1/4 pound bacon (5 slices), roughly chopped (Al used 7 slices)
1 teaspoon chipotle in adobo sauce, seeded if desired, and finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt  (Al's note- didn't use)
3 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro (Al used 1/4 C)
Sour cream, for serving (optional) (Al used 4 TBSP, low fat)

1. Slice corn kernels off cob. Fry bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat until crisp, about 5 minutes. If pan looks very greasy, spoon off some bacon fat if desired.

2. Stir corn into skillet and cook for 3 minutes. Stir in chipotle and salt. Add 2 tablespoons water and cook, scraping up browned bits from bottom of pan, and simmering until thickened. Stir in cilantro and serve, topped with a dollop of sour cream if you like.
