Spicy Corn off the Cob

Since we are in the mist of a brutal heat wave - day 6 of temps in the 90's!  With no relief in sight until Sunday, and temps expected to reach 99oF tomorrow (37.22 celsius). I've been trying to come up with easy side dishes and I came up with this creation.

We had some corn from the farm and I didn't want to stand over a hot grill roasting corn - I do not boil corn.  So I decided to take the corn off the cob and mix it up with a can of Rotel.  It was an easy and tasty side dish!  The bonus - my husband said this was a keeper!

1 dozen ears of corn
1 can of Rotel
Drizzle of olive oil
Pat of butter or margarine
Sea salt & fresh ground pepper to taste

Drizzle olive oil in a large skillet
Take the corn off the cob right over the skillet
Add a can of Rotel
Give a twist of sea salt & fresh ground pepper
Cook on medium heat for about 15 minutes
Finish with a pat of butter

P.S.  Thank you for all your painting suggestions!  It's going to take me a while, but I promise I'll post when complete!


  1. We're basking in high temperatures too ... but not as hot as yours. We're hitting round about 30 / 32 which is very high for us! I love it, but it's causing some problems around the country, like grass fires and melting tarmac. Your corn dish looks tasty.

  2. you know the simple stuff like this is exactly what you need in the incredibly hot weather... packed with flavour but not a hassle to make... genius!

  3. You don't boil corn? Do you steam it? This recipe sounds pretty tasty, though with the temps, I'll wait for a day when I need some warmth in my toes. Stay cool!

  4. We love Rotel and I think the corn is perfect with it for the summertime heat.

  5. I always keep a can of Rotel tomatoes in my pantry. Your corn sounds terrific.

  6. isn't this weather awful? it was 78 when i went out at 4:00 this morning. it set a record. i can't wait for local corn!

  7. It's so hot here too... phew... Sounds like a yummy side dish, will give it a whirl :) xx

  8. Looks fantastic! Corn is everywhere and this looks like the perfect summer dish:)

  9. Just steamed some corn yesterday, scraped it off the cob, mixed it with edamame and cream and had some very fine succotash.

  10. Hot here too- WAY too hot. This sounds like a great recipe. Now-if I could only serve it on ice! xo Diana

  11. Sounds delicious! It's been too hot for me to do any cooking this week, so we've been eating lots of salads, raw vegetables, and fruit.

  13. You do love your Rotel tomatoes. I think I saw a recipe in one of my canning books for canning tomatoes that have the flavor of a Rotel tomato. This corn dish looks delicious, quick and easy too.

  14. I am really looking forward to fresh, local corn soon! This sounds simple and delicious.

  15. We've had local corn for several weeks now..Yum..My stepdaughter makes that Jam..Love it..

  16. We love Rotel too, I'll have to give this a try for sure... I may have to use frozen corn for mine thow...

  20. Oh, those Rotel tomatoes! They can sure spice up a dish niicely! You know? I have just begun roasting my corn right on the ear on the grill pan atop the stove ... where have I been all these years? When it's this hot, though, having this easy side will make SB a happy man!

  21. hello,
    thank you so much for visiting my blog!
    this corn dish looks very delicious....thanks for sharing!
    you have a wonderful blog,too.
    have a nice day,

  22. I love using Rotel in cheese dip! This looks good, too! Hugs!

  23. I'm actually rather grateful that our heatwave has ended. It's hard to do much when it's so warm. My boys love corn and I reckon they would enjoy it served this way for sure.

  24. This looks delicious...Here is hoping that you have some reprieve from the heat soon.


  25. Love this recipe! Perfect for fresh corn, it looks delicious! Funny with the weather, it has been the coolest summer here I can remember in years, almost like fall some days. Weird! From heat to a/c and back. Have a great rest of the summer!

  26. I have heard really good things about this. Thanks for posting this and prompting me to try it. It looks delicious.
