Hi! I’m Betty. Welcome to Betty’s Kitchen. We’re going to be making Fiesta Corn Relish and I’ll think you’ll like it because it's very tasty and it has a very impressive look. Let’s start with some white shoepeg corn. This is an 11 ounce can and I’ve drained it already. So, expect that you’ll have to go to the sink and drain the water on the can. I want to place that on the bowl. The next thing to go in the bowl is ½ cup chopped green pepper. And you can chop this somewhere in between finely and coarsely just medium 1/2 cup. Next is ½ cup chopped red pepper. Again, just chop it medium. And then add your next ingredient which is a half cup of snipped green onion tops. You can see that bright color already that is why I'm saying that it is impressive salad. The next thing that comes along is diced jalapenos. This is a four ounce can and it has been drained. And you could see once you drain it, it's like have gone because there’s a lot of liquid in there which you don’t want that in your salad. As far as the shoepeg corn, the draining, I had very little water, all of this can drained, goes into our mixture.
Now, we have a couple of binders. We have sour cream and we have mayonnaise. And I’ve had three sour creams and I’ve chosen mayo free which I don’t think that means calorie free but it is fat free and it is a mainly reducing calorie. So, I’m making this in a pretty healthy way and you can see that all of these items are very healthy. So, you can have a healthy relish here that is nice and tasty and you won’t be having to worry about a lot of calories. So, we have our sour cream in there, ½ cup and then ½ cup of the mayonnaise.
I tried to make this easy for you by making everything it has. Everything I have added is either a whole can or it’s half cup. So, we have the half cup of green pepper, half cup of red pepper, half cup of snipped onions and half cup of sour cream, half cup of mayonnaise. And then whole can of the 11 ounce size of shoepeg corn, whole can of the diced jalapenos drained. That’s all. Now, mix this up and I have put this in a fairly large bowl to do the mixing. And while I get this mixed together, it's pretty much done. You can serve this as a side dish with your meal and you can tell from the things that I have put in here that it’s going to be very tasty. And you can probably see that it is very colorful. And I’m calling it Fiesta Corn Relish simply because it has that green and red bell pepper. And that does give it a festive look and I think you’ll like the look. Since I use this for mixing, it has some stuff around the edges, I probably would serve it in a fresh bowl. So, just pick out something maybe clear because if you use a clear bowl and you have something is dramatic with color, it will show us a lot better. So, there we have our Fiesta Corn Salad. And to serve it, like I said, just use it as an accompaniment to something else in your meal. And if you will like to see what it looks like as you deep it out, just take some of oil off it, you can’t avoid getting a little bit of oil off it. And then let’s take a bite to see if turned that good. It’s delicious. Enjoy!
