Corn & Poblano Pepper Saute

Corn & Poblano Pepper Saute
This unusual side dish is so versatile! Give it a Tex-Mex kick by adding some ground cumin and smoked paprika or give it a rich and indulgent touch by adding 1/2 cup heavy cream. You can even turn it into a vegetarian main dish by adding a can of black beans and serving it over rice.
