      This delicious, foolproof version of succotash, is made special by the inclusion of bacon, shallots, green bell pepper and cream. Apparently, succotash, an indigenous dish of corn and lima beans, was introduced to white settlers by the Native American Algonkian and Powhatan tribes. I was unable to obtain frozen baby lima beans, and instead cooked dried lima beans, before proceeding with the recipe. If possible, it may be even more delicious with fresh or frozen lima beans. Thank you for posting this recipe Bev. I will make it again.

      Wonderfully tasty and easy to make dish. Instead of bacon I used Morningstar Bacon strips and half-n-half instead of cream. It was delicious, with the chives giving it a nice crunchy texture and the remaining ingredients nicely complementing one another.
