Tasty Tuesday ~~ Corn Macque Choux

Hey, all you blogging epicurians; got a great and easy recipe for you today. [Yeah, it'll even please the vegetarians!] 

Don't get skeert 'cause you can't pronounce it; it's "mock-shoe." There, wasn't that easy?

If this is a regular in your recipe file box, I'd love to "hear" the spins and variations you use to make it your own.

To you writerly folkses -- last day to enter the Snarky Editor contest! C' know you got a bit o' the snark in ya and can give ol' Doofus a talkin' to. :D (There are signed copies of Kat Magendie's Tender Graces, and Cajun food prizes involved!)


Corn Macque Choux

1 stick butter (or comparable amount of Healthy Balance)
1 can Rotel tomatoes ("regular," not "hot")
1 5-oz. can whole kernel corn
1 5-oz. can creamed corn
1 tsp. Tony's or other Creole seasoning
Dash of sea salt, pepper & garlic powder (or 1/2 tsp. minced)
1/4 cup fat free Half & Half
1/2 small white onion, chopped fine

Melt butter in a medium-sized heavy pan. {Cast iron works great!} Saute onion until limp and clear. Add in Rotel and saute for about five minutes. Turn down the heat a bit, and add cream. Stir constantly. Add in corn and seasonings. Simmer on medium low for about 10 minutes. (6 servings)

I snarked. But it hasn't shown up on the comments for the Snark Week post. Do I need to resubmit?

Angie Ledbetter said...

Aww, Diane, you're too sweet! (I just entered your contest and followed the lady musician.) :)

Joey -- yeah, if it didn't show up right then, something didn't take, so you'll need to redo. Sowwy!

My hubbie and I love corn and spice, so that's already a winner. :)

My pleasure, Tere.

Smiles and happy corn dishes to you, Karen. :)
