Mexican Fried Corn

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by diner524

Another recipe found in Taste of Home. I haven't tried it yet and am posting for ZWT5. The author of the recipe states: When I was growing up, my mother used to serve fried corn for breakfast with scrambled eggs and tortillas. Here in Arizona, corn is widely used in many dishes. This is a great way to use it— my husband and I both enjoy it.

This was a nice corn recipe, loved the color that the peppers added to the recipe. Made for ZWT8.
