Succotash, a southern United States favorite, is a cooked dish of lima beans, corn kernels and sometimes chopped red and green sweet peppers. The name is taken from the Naragansett Indian word msickquatash, boiled whole kernels of corn.

This is only the second time I've made succotash (or lima beans for that matter), but this recipe ROCKS! I like it so much that I am going to go get more scallions so that I can make it again tomorrow. I did brown some bacon, drain the fat, then followed the recipe using the pan I cooked the bacon in, and topped the finished succotash with a small crumble of bacon. Thanks for a new favorite recipe, with a new favorite ingredient!
