What is succotash?

Succatash is a Native American dish made with corn and shell beans. There are regional variations, and the succotash may be served as a stew or salad; warm or cold; and with many added ingredients, including tomatoes, bell peppers, and even meat. The name most likely comes from the indigenous people from Narragansett (now Rhode Island) who referred to m'sickquatash—a word that may have meant either fragments/ broken pieces or boiled corn.
