Molly's Mexicorn Recipe

I jazzed up a corn recipe with some spicy seasoning to create this offering for a Mexican potluck. Everyone liked it so much that now it's all I'm ever asked to bring. The bright mix of colors makes it attractive for most any occasion. —Molly Mason Denver, Colorado

"I cut this recipe in half and used 1/3 cup diced fresh tomatoes vs. sliced pimientos. I also used 1/3 cup diced green pepper and eliminated the green onions (allergy). I was hesitant on how this would come out but I was happily surprised. We will make this again as this is the perfect side dish for Mexican dishes."
