Ooh Rod!! Corn machu is SO GOOD!!
My daughter learned how to make it a culinary class at the local college.
It's suppose to be an authentic cajun dish.
Then, my husband ate at The Petroleum Club one day and they had it on the menu then too. I hope you like it!!
I can't find the recipe! As soon as "said daughter" gets home, I'll get the recipe and post it.

Here we go!

CORN MACHU

1 cup finally chopped green bell pepper
1 cup finally chopped white onion
2 regular size cans cream corn
2 regular size cans whole kernal corn - DRAINED
a couple of dashes of Tony Cacheres
a couple of dashes of garlic salt
a couple of dashes of onion powder
half a cup to a cup of oil
1 regular size can of rotel tomatoes

Saute pepper, onion, rotel tomatoes in the oil.
Once that is done, then season it with the Tony's, garlic salt, and onion powder.

so many great sound recipes! I think I will print them and give them a try. I love trying new stuff, my family not so much, but that's OK, after all these years they should be used to it by now. cheesy
