Here’s the Recipe-

Ingredients

Two cups corn cut from the cob with a sharp knife, or frozen corn, thawed partially

2 T olive oil or unsalted butter

1/4 cup chopped green pepper

1/4 cup chopped red, yellow or orange bell pepper or combination for extra color!

1/4 cup finely chopped onion

Salt and pepper to taste

Easy Cooking Instructions

Shave the leftover corn off the cob with a sharp knife, store in the fridge and prepare this simple, flavorful dish in the next day or two! Twisty Tip – Cut ear of corn in half, stand the flat end on a cutting board and shave with a very sharp knife, while corn is still slightly warm or room temperature.

Heat a medium saute pan over medium heat.  Add olive oil or butter.  When pan is hot add chopped green pepper, chopped red bell pepper, and finely chopped onion.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Saute for 5 minutes, stirring often, or until vegetables are soft.  Add corn and cook until corn is heated through.

Adjust quantities as needed or according to what you have leftover.   2 cups of leftover, or frozen corn, plus peppers and onions, will serve 3-4 people as a side dish.
