A Native American dish. Read THIS for more fyi. I didn't have lima beans, so i opted to use canned black beans. Overall the dish was good and lesson learned..never to use canned beans w/ fresh veggies. I will be grilling all the veggies next time i make this.

This is the kind of recipe that doesn't really need exact measurements. It'll all depend on how much veggies you would like to cook with. This can also be cooked w/ meat such as rendered pork or bacon. I went vegetarian this time since i made this as a side dish to my Chipotle Chicken w/c i will be blogging too.

Fresh sweet corn kernels ( i used 3 ears)
Lima beans or any beans (i used canned black beans)
Sweet bell pepper (any color)
sweet onions
Salt and pepper to taste

Shuck corn then slice the kernels from cobs.
Chop veggies in the same sizes
Saute garlic and onions until cooked.
Add corn, celery and sweet pepper, stirring until cooked.
Add tomatoes right before serving to keep tomatoes fresh.
Add vegetable broth or water if necessary
Season with salt and pepper.


  1. Great post Pia. I did that one time as well, i will always use fresh vegis together and not can. It looks wonderful though, Oh and i bet grilling would be awesome.

  2. Grilling will be great coz it'll definitely add a smokey flavor to the dish. I'd rather use frozen veggies than the cans. Thanks for the visit, Cheryl!
