Mexican Pepper & Corn Side Dish

January 8, 2014

A couple of weeks ago we had friends over for a mexican feast.  We did it up right with all the fixings.  I wanted to make a little something extra for the taco’s so I whipped up a little mexican corn and pepper side.

(*Sorry the lighting is so crappy for my photos. It’s winter and with that brings terrible lighting at the dinner hour.)


This was a quick, super easy side to make and added a little something extra to the taco’s.


Mexican Corn & Pepper Side Dish

  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil

  • 1 Tsp. minced garlic

  • 1/2 green pepper

  • 1/2 onion

  • 1 1/2 C. frozen sweet kernel corn

  • pinch of salt and pepper

  • 1/4 tsp. cumin

Start by sautéing the garlic in olive oil over medium heat until garlic is golden brown.  Add onion to pan.  Give it a quick stir and let it caramelize.  After a couple of minutes, add green pepper.  Cook for another 2-3 minutes.  Add corn, stir and let cook until corn is warmed through, another 3-4 minutes.  Season veggies with salt, pepper and cumin.  Serve as a side or on top of your tacos.
