“A change of pace for your usual corn side dish. It is both pleasing to the eye and the palate! Works equally well with fresh corn or frozen. I found this recipe in the All New Good Housekeeping Cookbook.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in a medium-size non-stick skillet.
  2. Add onion and red pepper and cook, over medium-high heat until the vegetables are soft and well browned (10 to 15 minutes).
  3. Add corn, tomatoes, salt, sugar and cayenne pepper.
  4. Heat until mixture starts to bubble over high heat, then reduce heat, cover and simmer until corn is tender.
  5. Check and stir occasionally.
  6. It will take about 20 minutes for fresh corn to cook and about 10 minutes for frozen corn.
