Spicy Corn and Peppers

Spicy Corn and Peppers: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

I love vegetables that are easy and delicious. I also love vegetables that do not need to be thawed. I always seem to forget to thaw my vegetables until I am ready to make dinner.

This recipe has it all, easy, no need to thaw and delicious. As an added bonus it has a little bit of spice.

Spicy Corn and Peppers
Ingredients:
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup finely chopped yellow onion
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 Roma tomatoes, chopped
16 ounces frozen corn kernels

Directions:
In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, melt butter. Add in onion, bell pepper and cayenne. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes or until the onion is soft.

Add in corn and tomatoes. Cook, stirring often, for about 10 minutes or until corn is tender and tomatoes have softened.

Enjoy!!!

Notes:
The original recipe calls for a 1/2 cup milk stirred in after corn is done and then served immediately. For me all the milk did was make the dish runny. I do not feel it added anything to the dish, that is why I did not included in this recipe.
