Spicy Pan Roasted Corn

I do love corn, but tired of having it heated up from the can - or having corn on the cob with regular butter. BORING! I decided to try and spice it up a bit. Using my new stainless steel saute pan, I threw in some kicking flavors. Don't be shy with it!

*Serves 4
*Cook time: 10 minutes

1 box frozen corn (16oz)
1 tbs vegetable oil
1/2 tsp chili powder
Sprinkle of garlic powder
Salt & pepper 
*optional: Red peppers, chopped

1. Heat oil in saute pan on medium- high heat.

2. Add in frozen corn and cook for 12 minutes, stirring occasionally. Corn will start to turn brown.
* if you are using red peppers, add them in about 7-8 minutes after the frozen corn.

3. Add in spices and mix.

Ready to serve!

  1. Corn is so boring but I love how you kicked it up! There is more to corn than on the cob.

  2. I'm sorry, I don't see a way to contact you via email, so I'm hoping you'll see this comment! I love this recipe. I'd like to share it on my blog. I would use your photo, but link back here for the recipe and give you full credit. Would that be ok? You can email me at mediumsizedfamily at gmail dot com and let me know. Thanks!

    1. sure you may! sorry it took me a bit to see. thanks!

  3. I've been cooking peppers and onions in the skillet on the grill a lot lately. I'll have to add jalapenos next time. Yum. I like cooking bacon that way too, although hot fat + open flame adds a nice element of danger. I used to get flank steak, but my husband got me to try the carne asada cut from our local market, and I prefer it. Not sure if it's thin-cut flank or skirt (I'll have to ask), but it looks like this
