    Wow, this is great if you have fresh corn. I did not nuke this recipe, since I hated nuked food. I sauteed the jalapeno and red onion in 3 T. butter until softened. Then added the corn and cooked about 5 minutes til tender. I then seasoned it with fresh ground white pepper and kosher salt to taste. Did not have pimento or red pepper. Did not miss it. Wonderful side with Mexican food.  -  08 Apr 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I loved this recipe. After reading the other reviews I decided to use red bell pepper instead of pimento. I also sauted the onion, pepper, and jalepeno in a tbsp of butter before adding frozen corn. Our family loved it. It was alot like the mexicorn you can buy canned.  -  19 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    So simple, but very tasty. Did not have the pimento, but used red onion for a little color.  -  31 May 2012  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
