If you've never had corn like this then you are truly missing out. The juicy kernels are first sautéed with some chile, onion, and seasonings before being slowly simmered to their delicious perfection. Top with mayo, cheese, and powdered chile to finish the recipe. There are so many flavours at play, but yet they compliment each other wonderfully.

Traditional succotash is not made with edamame but you'll be surprised how great it fits in. Plus it's a wonderful protein addition to your succotash.

When I was growing up my mother often put slices of fresh, uncooked corn into her soups. I loved the challenge of bitting into the hot kernels while trying not to burn my mouth.
When you add fresh corn to the pot it adds flavour just like the carrots or celery that are added to build the broth. Corn lends a slight sweetness that only enhances whatever other ingredients go into the soup pot.Continue to 5 of 8 below.

This is another childhood favourite of mine. The vegetables are sautéed until tender and may be served as a side dish to any meats or fish. But if you're like me, you'll want to eat it all by itself.
One of the best things about this recipe is that you can add any fresh chile pepper to the pan, and in so give the vegetables a different kick depending on the pepper.

When I make the zucchini and corn recipe from above, I always make sure to make extra so that I can have leftovers for breakfast. Just like with the succotash recipe above (number 4), a fried egg on top gives you a completely different meal. Don't forget to add extra chili peppers and some crumbled cheese.

If you love a good hearty stew, you're going to devour this one by Diana Rattray. There's chicken, beans, jalapeños, corn, and many other flavour packed ingredients. She also suggest serving with some cornbread, now that sounds scrumptious!

In this delectable recipe by Dora Villarosa, she steps up the grilled corn to a whole new level of deliciousness. As she states herself, "When corn is grilled, a smoky depth is added to its sweetness." To this smokey-sweet combination she adds a punch of heat with cayenne, then finishes the corn with a citrusy touch. The recipe is so easy that I can see it becoming one of your favourites too.
