Great recipe, I made a couple alterations to suite our tastes, I substituted a couple fresh mushrooms sliced up instead of the corn and to make it more filling added about a cup of instant white rice and let it set until the rice was soft. Overall a good recipe and a great way to use up those leftovers.
