"Simple, flavorful, and colorful side dish. We omitted the water chestnuts, and added butter, cilantro, and salt and pepper to taste. It was the perfect accompaniment to chicken quesadillas. We will definitely be adding this dish to our family recipe book."

"A great simple side and good way to use up extra veggies. I'm not a huge fan of corn but this recipe makes it interesting and more flavorful while still being healthy. It's quick and yummy."
