"Tastes good as is."

"A good recipe. I made a couple of substitutions to kick it up a notch. Added about 3 Tbsp of finely chopped Poblano pepper as I thought the recipe as written would be a bit bland. Also, used chopped purple onion to give it some color."

"I used red pepper instead to give it some color and added little bit of black pepper. Delicious!!! It was definitely a hit at our dinner table. Even those who don't like corn, loved it. Plus, it's so quick and easy to prepare.
