Comments

Sherman Extension used this recipe for the monthly cafeteria taste test at Sherman County School.  Smelled great cooking, fairly good reception by the kids...except those who announced "I don't like corn!".  Would be a super easy recipe to use at home, as you can use fresh, frozen or canned ingredients, utilizing what you have on hand.
