Summer Seasoned Corn


This will be your favorite cook-out bring along!  I always offer to bring this, for two reasons.  First, it’s super fast, easy, and cheap.  In season is very inexpensive,  this is basic supply and demand.  Second, it looks like you tried a little!  This stuff is so delicious, and you cannot mess this up!  It’s all in the salt and pepper.  You can add any color pepper you want to this dish.  Don’t forget the jalepeno, poblano, or I often throw any leftover salsa verde I have in there! Enjoy this recipe all summer long!
