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

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.
