I like to serve this as a side dish, to go along with Chicken Chili Lasagna.

Great, easy way to punch up the flavor of frozen corn. Very colorful, too. I like that everything is prepared quickly in the microwave.

This turned out great. I never tried cumin in corn before and it really went well with the peppers and onions. The instructions were right on with the cooking time. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC fall 2009.

I love the color and the flavor in this recipe - I don't microwave so I put all the ingredients in a skillet, covered it and heated it over medium heat - veggies were still crunchy. Didn't use any butter or oil just a spray of "No OIl" on the pan.
