Expert Tips

Make this tame dish wild by using 1 pound of hot or spicy pork sausage and substituting 1/4 cup cayenne pepper sauce (hot sauce) for the chili powder. Your taste buds will definitely be tickled!

You’ll want to use a 12-inch skillet for this recipe because of the amount of ingredients. If you don’t have a skillet that large, use a 4- or 5-quart Dutch oven.

One cup of Green Giant® Valley Fresh Steamers™ Niblets® frozen corn can be substituted for the canned corn.
