  • 2 cups frozen corn
  • 2 tablespoons diced green chilis
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon salt This is a variable, if you like more, add it.
  • 1 teaspoons cumin
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons milk


  • Heat saute pan over medium heat. Add corn, water, green chilies and spices to pan. Cover and cook for about 5 minutes until corn is thawed and it has boiled for several minutes. Remove cover and continue to cook, stirring occasionally. Add milk in the last minute or 2. Cook for a minute or 2 with the milk in it. Serve immediately. If you don't use it all up, it holds well in the fridge for 3-4 days.
    Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it.
