I love corn! Have never tried to saute it before and I'll tell you that other than grilled corn there is nothing better than sauteed corn! Combined with cilantro and lime juice? Heavenly and especially as a side for any Mexican meal and even inside a taco!


  • 3 cups fresh or frozen sweet corn kernels
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tsp. lime juice, or more to taste
  • Salt to taste, if desired


Melt butter in a small skillet on medium heat, add corn, sauté until desired doneness, about 3 to 5 minutes, remove from heat stir in lime juice and cilantro, add salt to taste and serve.

This is a nice side dish to take to pot luck dinners or to serve with supper. Freezes well, also!




Prepare rice as directed on package. Mix rice together with cheese and mushroom soup in large bowl. Stir in drained Mexicorn, combining well. Pour into sprayed or greased 9x9 inch square pan, or similar sized casserole dish. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees F until bubbly, about 35-45 minutes.

If freezing, put in pan and cover with foil, do not bake. Allow to thaw a bit before baking. I usually make two small ones, one for cooking that day, and the other for freezing.

*Note: If you can't find Mexicorn or consider it too pricey (I get mine at bent/dent stores and wouldn't want to pay the full price in stores), you can mix regular whole kernel canned corn with a few tablespoons of diced red and green bell peppers that have been cooked just until barely soft.

We make baked corn at holiday meals. It's a side dish that reminds me of getting together with family.



Crush crackers and set aside. (for less mess, put them in a ziplock bag and crush/roll them out with a rolling pin.)

Next, beat egg in a casserole dish.


Be sure the dish will fit in your microwave. Stir in milk, sugar, corn, butter, crackers and salt, and pepper.

Microwave for 7 minutes. Do not cover. Stir, then sprinkle with a bit of paprika. Microwave for another 5-7 minutes. Times may vary depending on how deep or shallow your dish is. Enjoy!

Remove as much silk as possible from corn. Then, using a sharp chef's knife, cut kernels off the cob. You want to end up with 3 to 3-1/2 cups corn. If ears are large, you may not need corn from all cobs.

Beat eggs well; add other ingredients. Pour into buttered casserole dish and bake at 350 degrees F for 30-40 minutes, as any custard. (If baked too long, it will curdle).
