Mexican Fried Corn Recipe

Publisher Photo
When I was growing up, my mother used to serve fried corn for breakfast with scrambled eggs and tortillas. Here in Arizona, corn is widely used in many dishes. This is a great way to use it— my husband and I both enjoy it. —Sylvia Kessick, Dewey, Arizona

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 26, 2010

I had boiled fresh ears of corn but had three ears leftover. The next day I cut the corn off the cob and fried them as directed in this recipe, but with 1/2 olive oil and 1/2 butter. It was a good and easy way to use leftover corn, but not sure if my family would seek it out as a desired first-choice side dish.
