Skillet Corn and Lima Beans

I saw the greatest recipe on The Home Heart here: http://thehomeheart.wordpress.com/2012/09/25/savory-skillet-veggies/

I have had it in the past but I wanted some RIGHT THEN but, still on my diet, I knew I had to make it a little less caloric. If you aren’t on a diet, go on over and give The Home Heart some love and use her recipe! She’s a great cook and I just love her recipes. However, I made a great recipe with a lot less calories so I could have some!

***But first: Here’s an update on my Allrecipes. Com recipe! It came in my email today!! Yay!! It came with some great slow cooker chicken recipes and then, in the second row – Ta Da! There I am. I have two reviews now here’s that post:  Halloween Ghosties YIPEE!! I tried to give you the link, but it took you straight to my personal email and while I really like y’all, can’t let ya in there!  On to my version of corn/lima bean combo and it is only 125 calories for ½ a cup. Since there is real cheese on it, that’s not bad at all! I had it for lunch yesterday, dinner last night, and will have it for lunch today.

2 tablespoons butter go into a skillet to melt:

Then the fresh (frozen) corn:

Let it start browning – see how the sugars in the corn brown up?

Then, drain a can of Lima Beans and mix them in. Lima Beans are VERY high in iron.

After it’s all warmed up, sprinkle 1/3 cup of Mexican Style grated cheese on top and pop on the lid until it melts.

Add a little Paprika for color.
