Spicy Corn Relish

Yield Makes about 3 cups
While Aulii Pila and her husband were house-sitting, he challenged her to create a new dish using ingredients on hand. The result was this versatile corn relish. Add it to tacos, burritos, or fajitas, or spoon it onto lettuce for a salad. Alternatives for canned corn are 1 1/2 cups of frozen corn kernels or grilled corn cut off the cob.


  • 1 can (15 oz.) corn kernels, drained
  • 1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup diced green bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • Hot sauce
  • Salt and pepper
