Corn, Onion, and Pepper Sauté

Corn, onion, and pepper sauté  is a great way to fancy up frozen corn.

Corn, onion, and pepper sauté is a quick side dish and a great way to dress up frozen corn.

I don’t know about you but side dishes are the bane of my supper time existence.  I’m not a big fan of complicated side dishes so I usually stick with pretty much with things like corn with butter, broccoli, green beans, cabbage, and salads.

This sauté of corn, bell pepper, and onions comes together quickly with readily available ingredients. During the summer you can use garden fresh corn and peppers and in the winter you can use the pepper and onion mix from the freezer case in your grocery store with frozen whole kernel corn.
