Very good! I reduced the butter to 2 tablespoons and added about 1/2 cup onion. Thank you Vicki in CT for sharing. Made for 123 Hit Wonders!

This was delicious! I made it just as stated, except for a reduction in butter and we really enjoyed this side dish. The one thing I would do differently when I make this again, as I plan to, would be to add some onions into the mixture. I loved the chilies added and think the onions, for us, would take this one over the top. = ) Chosen for Family Picks of ZWT 4 for the Cookin' Cats team. Thanks!!

Great veggie side dish! I loved the roasted chilies in it, I used an anaheim, which gave a good amount of heat. I used a can of corn instead of fresh ears, because they aren't available this time of year. I also reduced the butter to 2 tbsp. Thanks for sharing!
