This sweet and tangy side dish uses lots of convenient canned goods, so it’s a snap to throw together. “The recipe was sent to me by a friend,” says Barbara Gordon of Roswell, Georgia. “It’s nice to serve at a group picnic.” TIP: “This dish can be cooked in the oven instead. Cover and bake in a 350° oven for 40 minutes. Remove cover and cook 10 minutes longer.”

We discovered Mexican street corn at a festival. This easy one-pan version saves on prep and cleanup. Every August, I freeze a lot of our own fresh sweet corn, and I use that in this recipe, but store-bought corn works just as well. —Erin Wright, Wallace, Kansas

Veggie Bean Casserole

I serve this as a meatless main dish, but it also makes a nice side dish. It freezes and reheats well, so I’ll sometimes double the recipe. It has a colorful combination of carrots, corn, beans and tomatoes.
