This Louisiana favorite (pronounced "mock shoe") is delicious on its own or topped with barbecued pork.
1 medium-size sweet onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 jalapeño pepper, minced
2 tablespoons canola oil
4 cups fresh corn kernels (about 8 ears)
2 tomatoes, chopped
2 teaspoons Creole seasoning
How to Make It
Sauté onion, bell pepper, garlic, and jalapeño pepper in hot oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat 10 minutes or until tender. Stir in corn, tomatoes, and seasoning; reduce heat to low. Cover and cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
My husband and I love this dish. Easy to make and very tasty. I always add the pork to the dish to make it a "main dish". I've made it with frozen corn and it was just as good. I only use half a jalapeno as a whole one is a bit too spicy for our taste.
This recipe was awesome and I even made it easier on myself. However, I did change it a little. I cooked 2 pieces of bacon in the skillet, removed and used the bacon grease as my oil. I also added a couple cloves of garlic. I used frozen corn as well. I crumbled the bacon over top at the end. It was delicious.
Did I do something wrong? I used fresh tomatoes from my garden (and peppers) and they are good in other recipes I make, so I don't think it's my vegetables. It was okay. My husband thought it was good, but that wasn't said with any emphasis. I just didn't find it to be anything special and I generally enjoy about 80% of these recipes...
