Succotash

I catered a party recently with a western theme. We went over menu options and the hostess ended up choosing succotash as one of the sides. I know, kind of a silly sounding name. As a kid I didn’t like it- but then I didn’t like Lima beans when I was a kid. Succotash’s main 2 components¬† are corn and Lima beans. After that different ingredients are sometimes added. I went my own way on this one and came up with a side dish I didn’t just like- I loved. So did the party guests. It could even be a vegetarian main dish instead of a side. My additions- butter, garlic and sweet peppers.

Succotash

2 T. butter

2-3 cloves garlic, minced

1 sweet red pepper, seeded and chopped

1 lb. fresh Lima beans- I used frozen

5-6 cups fresh or frozen corn

salt and pepper to taste

In skillet heat butter and cook garlic over medium heat until just getting color on it- be careful not to burn. Toss in the pepper and cook 5 minutes longer- until pepper is tender-crisp. Add beans and corn and cook until heated through, stirring often. Adjust seasonings and add a little more butter, if you like. Serves 6-8.
