Tex-Mex Succotash


  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1 box frozen corn (10 ounces), defrosted

  • 1 small red onion, chopped

  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped or grated

  • 1/4 cup cilantro (about a handful), chopped

  • 2-3 small tomatoes, seeded and diced

  • A few dashes hot sauce (more if you like it spicy!)

  • Salt and ground black pepper


Place a medium skillet over medium-high heat (on the stovetop, grill or campfire) with 2 turns of the pan of oil, about 2 tablespoons. Add the corn to the pan and cook until golden brown, 4-5 minutes. Add the onion, jalapeño and garlic to the pan, and cook until the veggies are golden brown and tender, 5-6 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the cilantro, tomatoes and hot sauce. Season with salt and pepper, and serve warm.
