Simple Corn Sauté with a Kick

May 12, 2014


Author Notes: My favorite way to serve corn all summer long. Less messy than gnawing on cobs, no toothpicks or floss needed. I personally love a little heat but swap out red chillies for mini red peppers if you don't. A cheesy, spicy take on a hot-weather favorite.foodfanatic
