Sweet Corn with Anaheim Peppers

Sweet corn cooked with Anaheim peppers is easy to make and packed with brilliant colors and great flavor. This recipe is the type of side dish that can be thrown together on a moments notice and goes especially well with chicken or pork dishes. It’s also a simple way to get people to eat something healthy.

I generally make this recipe with frozen corn, but it would also be delicious with fresh corn taken right off the cob.

Try serving it with our Apple Cider Soaked Pork Shoulder, Southwestern Sous Vide Rack of Lamb, or Smoked Chicken recipes.
