8 Anaheim peppers, divided
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1 (15-oz.) can stewed tomatoes, drained

Preparation

1. Remove and discard seeds and membranes from 2 peppers. Chop peppers.

2. Broil remaining 6 peppers on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet 5 inches from heat 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until peppers look blistered.

Keep peppers warm.

3. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add green onions, and sauté 1 minute. (Do not brown.) Stir in chopped peppers, tomatoes, and 1/2 tsp. salt; cook 4 to 5 minutes or until tender. Add corn, and cook, stirring occasionally, 6 minutes.
