This is a super easy side dish and the ingredients cost less than $3. I used 1 can of corn, half a lime, a couple slices of jalapeno, and taco seasoning.
In a pan, melt butter at medium-high heat (on a scale from 1 to 10, use a 6 or 7). While it’s melting, rinse the corn in a colander then add a couple of spoonfuls of taco seasoning to the corn. If you don’t have a package of taco seasoning, you can use a mix of cumin, garlic salt and chili powder.
Throw the corn in the pan with a couple of diced jalapeno slices. If it doesn’t look like it’s browning on that heat level, turn it up a little bit to an 8. When the corn was looking nice and roasted, it started popping out of the pan. Kind of fun. Kind of painful if it landed on you. Should take 15 minutes or less.
Squeeze half a lime over the corn and serve!
