Spiced Up Corn

One of my dear friend and customer asked me last week if there was anything wrong with my website because he was no longer getting recipes… I felt so bad!!!

I know and I apologize to my dear readers for my lack of “posting”, but I have been so busy with parenting, giving cooking classes and other projects that I have not had time to post many recipes lately. Not to worry. I still cook and my recipes add up on my computer, and one day they will come again in your inbox;-) It is not so much the cooking or the writing that takes time, it is the proofreading and the editing that takes me a while..
Anyway, the other day I was fixing a corn dip for a friend of mine and the recipe was so yummy that I decided to adapt it to my dinner so i thought i would share with you today.
So here it is:

You will need for 4-6 serving:

  • 1 onion chopped thinly
  • 1 jalapeno pepper chopped ver thinly as well
  • 1 red pepper chopped
  • 1/4 cup or about 8 scallions chopped very thinly as well
  • 2 tbsp of butter or olive oil.
  • Cayenne pepper and salt to taste
  • 2-4 cups of corn ( fresh or frozen) (2-4 because it depends how much you want to cook, and how much left-over you want.)

First sauté the onion in the butter or the olive oil in a large saute pan. When the onion is becoming a light brown color, add the red bell pepper, scallions and jalapeno pepper. Stir and sauté for a few minutes. Then add the corn ( fresh or frozen). Cook this mixture on medium for a few minutes until the corn turns yellow and is cooked. Season with salt and pepper. Add a pinch or a dash of cayenne pepper depending on how hot you like your food and enjoy!!!

Bon Appetit and Happy Cooking!!!
