  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter or oil
  • 1 ½ cups corn fresh or frozen
  • ½ large green pepper diced
  • ½ large red pepper diced
  • ½ large onion diced
  • 1 tbsp cajun seasoning
  • 1 cup milk or cream
  • 1 tbsp all purpose flour


  • Heat a skillet over medium high heat. Add butter or oil.
  • Add in the corn, green pepper, red pepper and onion and cook for 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until the vegetables have softened.
  • Add the cajun seasoning and milk and cook for 5 minutes more.
  • Sprinkle the flour on top and stir it in.
  • Cook for another 3-5 minutes or until the mixture has thickened.


Milk: We keep 2% milk in the house and I use this if I don't have any cream on hand. If you don't have either, but have cream cheese, cut 3 oz. into small pieces and stir it into the mixture until it melts. You can skip the flour in this case.
Cajun Seasoning: Cajun and creole seasoning are pretty interchangeable if your grocery store only carries one.
