Fried Fresh Corn and Onion

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

Sometimes simple is the best, my family loves this when corn season comes around --- to make things easier use an electric knife to remove the corn from the cob, chili powder is also good to use in place of cayenne, you can also add in 1-2 tablespoons fresh minced garlic or 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder in with the onion if desired :)

I wasn't crazy about this, but I can see its potential. I think it'd be better without cayenne and with the addition of garlic as suggested. My DH really loved it but the kids refused to eat it, so it was probably just a bit too spicy for them with the cayenne. Maybe use chili powder next time...
