A spicy cajun corn dish perfect with chicken or shrimp.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the corn from the cob. Scrape the cobs with the blunt edge of the knife to remove the "milk." Set aside.
  2. Heat the butter in a large, heavy pot over medium heat. Add onions and bell pepper. Cook, stirring, until golden and soft, about 10 minutes.
  3. Add corn, tomatoes, and water. Cover and simmer over medium-low heat for 15 minutes.
  4. Add salt, jalapeno, and cayenne and cook until corn is very tender, 20-30 minutes more.

Made as directed, an easy and pleasing side-dish with a little kick! Enjoyed for ZWT9, Panthers On The Prowl, thank you strawberrybird!

Nice refreshing change to plain corn though both hubby & I felt something was missing. I had to make it with coconut oil as I'm allergic to dairy and that may be exactly what was missing. Next time will try with a butter flavoured margarine. Thanks for posting, SB ! Made during ZWT9 for team Tasty Testers :)

This was a very tasty corn dish! I used fresh grape tomatoes instead of crushed, otherwise made as directed. The jalapeno and cayenne gave this a nice kick. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT9, The Apron String Travelers
