1 (16 ounce) package
frozen Fordhook lima beans, thawed
1 (16 ounce) can
whole kernel corn, drained
1 (4 ounce) can
chopped green chile peppers
The missing "something" is 1 C cream instead of 1 C water, 3T butter instead of 1! I make it all the time, and it's just like MY Mother made 'cause I use her recipe.
Succotash is a favorite of mine. I make it using the cream and butter combination as suggested. Just before serving, stir in a pinch (just a pinch)of fresh ground nutmeg. That's the way my granmother made it.
This was GREAT!!! So simple! So tasty! I am NOT a big lima bean fan, but my husband is, so I tried this recipe for him. He loved it and so did I. I will gladly eat my lima beans from now on if they are prepared like this. Thanks so much for the great recipe!
This was really good I used the other reviewers idea and added 3tbsp of butter and some cream very yummy and a great way to sneak in great tasting veggies!
Yummy! I added 2 more Tbsp. butter and also added about 1/2 cup of evaporated milk (I would have added cream, but didn't have any on hand) and let that reduce until thick. (I like my succotash creamy.) Hubby and I loved this dish!! I'm already craving it again.
This is the best succotash recipe I've ever made. I made no changes, and my whole family loved it. Green chilis are one of my favorite ingredients, and I never would have thought to add them to succotash. This will definately be a regular. Thanks for a great recipe!
I made this exactly as the recipe instructed (except frozen corn instead of canned because that's what I had on hand) and it was great. My family liked it, too.
I noticed other reviews mentioned adding some sort of cream...I'm not from the South so I'm not sure what Succotash is "supposed" to taste like.
Recipe as is, including the optional tablespoon of butter at the end, was great!
