I made this last night, as a side, with pot roast. I made a half recipe, and used poblano peppers in place of green bell peppers. The flavor balance is excellent. When I make it again -- and I will -- I will probably increase the amount of corn relative to the other vegetables, but otherwise I would not change it.

I prepared this last night and cannot begin to tell you how much we loved it. One of the very best recipes I have tried recently. Both my husband and I nearly ate the entire recipe it is so good. We will definitely be having this again. I would give it ten stars if I could. I highly recommend this dish as a Volunteer Field Editor for Taste of Home.

This was the easiest recipe and pulled together quickly. My 6 year old loved it! A wonderful blend for veggies and it is not overpowering on spice incase anyone was worried about the creole spice. Totally perfect!

Good and different recipe for corn. I won't use quite as much Creole seasoning next time.
