This was very nice. The only reason that I didn't give this 5 stars is that the sauce separated. Looked ugly while I was cooking it but didn't seem to matter when I poured it on the corn. Than...

This had no flavor at all.

This had a nice spicy flavor but wasn't too hot or mouth burning. I used cut corn and added the butter to the cooked corn. This turned out very delicious. I'll fix this easy recipe again. Thanks...

Due to a freak accident I no longer have my original front tooth so I altered this recipe for canned corn and it was excellent!! I never imagined Id love such a simple addition to basic corn! ...

The butter is very good, but not enough of it sticks to the corn to impact the taste.

Doubled the recipe and used fat free butter, very yummy! Definitely recommend!

Wowzers did we love this! This will be an addition to all our cajun summer meals.
