    Serve pork chops with the basil creamed corn.

    Helpful Tips:
    1. Top the pan with the lid to help speed up the cooking time of the pork. Cook the pork to about 140 degrees internally.
    2. Grilling the corn before cutting it off the cob will add a nice smokey flavor.
    3. If you don’t like a lot of heat, then cut back on the red pepper flakes or leave them out completely.
    4. Squeeze the lime with tongs for easy juicing.
