Spicy Corn Relish

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.
