Corn and Chile Succotash

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by HocoRuco

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.

Loved this great corn dish! Flavorful with the poblano but not spicy. I cooked the onions a little more than called for because I don't like them on the raw side, otherwise made as directed. I think this would be great with fresh summer corn too. Thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for Spring Pick-A-Chef 2013

  5. Cook covered for about 3 to 5 minutes.
