Baked Corn

I love to take a vegetable God meant for nourishment and just add as much fat as possible to it.  Seriously, this recipe is not healthy, but it is SO good.  And I don't always wait until dinner to serve it as a side dish.  A lot of times I treat it as a dip and dunk tortilla chips deep into it.  YUM.
