Description

My mother-in-law introduced me to this traditional Cajun side dish and it became a family favorite. I gravitate toward recipes with simple ingredients and it doesn’t get any more simple than this!

Ingredients

  • 1 whole Onion (small)
  • ½ whole Red Bell Pepper
  • 2 stalks Celery
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ¼ teaspoons Pepper
  • ¼ teaspoons Cajun Seasoning
  • 16 ounces, weight Bag Frozen Corn
  • 3 Tablespoons Flour
  • 1 cup Milk

Preparation

1. Slice, dice and chop up your onion, pepper, and celery. If my celery leaves look nice and green, I chop those up and stick them in there too.
2. In a large skillet, melt your butter over medium heat and then add your chopped vegetables.
3. Sprinkle on your salt, pepper and Cajun seasoning (about 1/4 teaspoon of each). You can add more later if needed.
4. Saute your vegetables until the onion is wilted looking, about 7-8 minutes.
5. Add your bag of corn, stir and cook this another 2 minutes.
6. Sprinkle your flour over the vegetables and stir this together. It will quickly turn to a thick mixture.
7. Add your milk and mix this all up.
8. Taste and add more salt, pepper or Cajun Seasoning if needed. Once thickened you are ready to serve.
