Wow this is great if you have fresh corn. I did not nuke this recipe since I hated nuked food. I sauteed the jalapeno and red onion in 3 T. butter until softened. Then added the corn and cooked about 5 minutes til tender. I then seasoned it with fresh ground white pepper and kosher salt to taste. Did not have pimento or red pepper. Did not miss it. Wonderful side with Mexican food. Read More

Corn is a favorite at our house (probably because it's so sweet) and my daughters did eat this up but to me the overwhelming flavor of the finished dish was butter - even with the jalapenos and pimentos. I normally adjust my expectations based on the ingredient listing but I really didn't think 2T of butter would have such an impact on the end result! Read More

I loved this recipe. After reading the other reviews I decided to use red bell pepper instead of pimento. I also sauted the onion pepper and jalepeno in a tbsp of butter before adding frozen corn. Our family loved it. It was alot like the mexicorn you can buy canned. Read More

So simple but very tasty. Did not have the pimento but used red onion for a little color. Read More

Very good! I didn't have any jalapeno peppers on hand so I used half of a 4 oz can of diced green chile peppers (drained) and no pimentos. It was just enough heat for us. Delicious!!! Read More

great summer side dish simple and great for picnics. i did make it in the microwave but next time I'd make it even better but frying up the onions and making it all on the stovetop. Thanks for sharing! Read More

Such an easy way to jazz up a side dish of corn! I used canned corn pickled jalapeno slices and subbed some diced pepper for the pimentos. Delicious! Read More

Fantastic corn dish - we loved it! I didn't have corn on the cob but did have frozen corn. I just eye-balled the amounts of ingredients that I used. I mixed it all up in a skillet and cooked on the stovetop rather than the microwave. I used the last of the garden jalapeños in this recipe along with the last orange bell pepper in place of the pimento. This was packed with flavor and the jalapeños added a wonderful zip. Most certainly will be gracing our table again. Read More

My friends and family love this! I made a few changes. First I grill the corn prior to cutting it off the cob. Also I substitute a red pepper for the pimento. Read More
