“This recipe could hardly be easier. It doesn't need to be watched super carefully because you actually want it to burn a little bit because there is nothing tastier than charred corn. This dish is incredibly versatile and can be served as a side dish or incorporated into a taco or Mexican salad dish or you can chop some avocado and tomatoes and make an easy "grilled" corn salsa.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Chopp onion and chile such that the pieces are comparable in size to the kernels of corn.
  2. In a large skillet (that you have a lid for), heat oil over medium-high heat.
  3. Add chopped onion and chile and cook until onions are translucent but still firm (3-5 minutes).
  4. Pour frozen corn into skillet. Stir as much as possible and then cover.
  5. Cook covered for about 3 to 5 minutes.
  6. Stir corn mixture. Corn should be thawed at this point.
