1/8 teaspoon hot sauce

*pre-cooked white cornmeal found in Mexican markets or the Mexican section of some grocery stores. Substitute standard cornmeal if Masarepa is unavailable.
In a medium saucepan, place the olive oil over medium heat. Add the corn and season with dried minced onions, salt and pepper. Stir to coat the corn in the seasonings.
Sprinkle the Masarepa over the corn. Add the light cream and milk, stirring constantly for 3-5 minutes, or until the mixture thickens and comes together. Reduce heat to low.
