I too used half the butter & leftover broccoli. I wasn't able to purchase mexicorn, so I used a tin of niblets corn and added chopped red & green peppers (1/4 cup of each) and some chopped red onion. It was a tasty & colourful addition to our evening meal. Thanx Dreamgoddess!

Quick and simple side dish. I only used half the amount of butter specified, which is just my family’s personal taste. I had a quite a bit of sauted broccoli left over from another dinner, so I chopped it slightly and added it to the mexicorn and heated through a bit. It’s good to have a few simple side dishes like this. Makes it easier to get veggies in with every meal!
