Gussied-Up Corn
20 mins (prep 10, cooking 10)
7 ingredients
6-8 servings
I get tired of just heating up frozen corn to serve as a side dish, and my kids aren't big fans of corn-style casseroles. Trying to be more creative, I tried this a few years ago and everyone loved it. Just something different than the same old, same old corn. Very simple to prepare. The measurements of peppers and onions are approximate, I never measure, I just put in what looks about right.
