Mexican Fried Corn

Corn on the cob is back in the grocery stores and it's been looking fairly good.  I bought 4 ears in hopes that they would be cooked on the grill but the weather is still in Spring denial.  Since I was already making other Mexican foods, I decided to make a fried corn with some Mexican flavors.

Mexican Fried Corn

4 ears sweet corn
2 tbsp butter

1/4 cup onion, minced
2 tbsp chopped green chilies
1/2 tsp oregano
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Slice the corn downward from the cob.  I place it in a bowl so kernels aren't flying all over the kitchen counter.

Place the corn, onion, green chilies and butter in a heated saute pan and cook for 10 minutes.  Stir often. Add in oregano, salt and pepper.
