Canned Corn recipe as a side dish?!

Question: Canned Corn recipe as a side dish?
I need a corn recipe using canned corn as a side dish. I don't have creamed corn and in fact I don't like creamed corn. All I have is regular canned corn. What can I add to it to make it taste better? Thanks.

I always like maque choux. It is a cajun corn dish with lots of flavor. Here is a link to a recipe I have used before & liked. Canned corn should be just fine instead of fresh.…

Have you tried making a cheesy white sauce instead of just plain? Just add the cheese (shredded) of your choice to the white sauce, and you could also add a little salsa or rotel tomatoes (drained). Then add the corn kernels.

Go the simple route. Drain, dump in a microwave safe bowl add some butter and then sugar to taste. microwave till hot. That's the way ive been eating it since i was little.

a little butter, some tomatoes and italian seasoning, add some red pepper and some black pepper as well

Add a can of crushed fire-roasted tomatoes and some fresh basil

Finely chopped red and green sweet peppers (cooked, not raw) will add flavor and color.

Saute some chopped bell peppers and make "mexicorn"
