Mexicalli Corn / " Mexicorn " Substitute-Copycat-Clone

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by RogerOH

This is quick, easy and a very colorful corn dish. Years ago a major canning company use to have what they called Mexicalli Corn. Several months ago my wife said she would like some. The stores no longer stocked it, so I set out to duplicate it. This is the results.

This is very good, nice side-dish with any meal. With all of the fresh colorful peppers, this is a step above mexicorn.
