  • 3 1/2 cups corn (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lime juice
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

Directions

  1. In a large nonstick skillet, heat olive oil over medium. Add scallions and cook until softened, 3 minutes. Add chile and cook 1 minute.

Cook's Notes

Chipotle chiles in adobo add spark to salad dressing or can be mixed with honey to glaze chicken.
