I made this recipe for my family last night and they loved it. It was so good! I will make it again, next time I will cut the bacon in pieces before cooking it. And might reserve some bacon for crunchy toppings. Not all of the corn cobs would fit in my pot, so I used 3 and it was perfect. It was spicy and delicious!
