I loved this. It has a nice flavor and is so quick to make too. For the cooking oil I used extra virgin olive oil. 3 cups of corn seems like a lot, but it is only about 4 servings. I used about 1 16oz bag of sweet corn. Only change I made was cutting the black pepper, cayenne, and lime rind in half. Only because I find all 3 to be very dominant flavors. It appears this recipe is fool proof. I was looking for a side dish to go with carne asada tacos and this will work perfect.

In a word: delicious! I used a southwest frozen vegetable blend (corn, black beans, mild chili peppers, red bell peppers, onion) and used "Fiesta Lime" salt-free seasoning in place of the paprika, pepper, cayenne pepper, lime peel, and half of the salt. Goes great with Pupusas de Queso from Allrecipes.
