Made for a nice quick side dish to have with a Mexican entree. Taste was just okay.

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.
