Maque Choux

  • Yield 8 servings

You may need to add some sugar to taste if the corn isn't sweet enough.

Ingredients

8 ears of corn
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped seeded and peeled tomato
Salt and pepper to taste
Cajun or Creole seasoning to taste
Sugar (optional)

Instructions

  1. Remove the husks and silks from the corn. Using a sharp knife, cut the kernels into a bowl. Scrape the ears with the knife to release the liquid.
  2. Heat the oil in a skillet. Add the undrained corn and cook for a few seconds, tossing constantly.
  3. Stir in the onion and bell pepper. Reduce the heat to low. Cook, covered, until the corn is tender and the onion and bell pepper are soft.
  4. Add the tomato, salt, pepper and Cajun seasoning. Cook, covered, for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
