DIRECTIONS

  • In the skillet, heat the butter over medium low heat until melted.
  • Add the onion and saute until wilted but not brown.
  • Add the bell peppers and the corn and stir to coat everything with butter, sprinkle with some salt, pepper, and cayenne, and continue cooking over med-low heat, stirring frequently, until all liquid (if any) completely evaporates, the vegetables start to take on a slight caramalization and the whole room smells really, really good.
  • (This should take about 20 minutes).
  • Taste, adjust the seasonings if you need to, and serve.
  • Note: I say to use a cast iron skillet because, as with cornbread, I believe this dish suffers in flavor if it is not cooked in one.
  • However, if you don't have one, you can use another skillet- just know that it would be much better cooked in a cast iron skillet.
