BEANS & CORN - My Grandson's Recipe

Beth M.


In 2006, when he was ten years old, my grandson gave me this recipe. I've saved it on a scrap of paper, and it was taped inside a favorite cookbook.

I've been hunting for this recipe, and I found it so that I could include it here.

He loves good food and enjoyed helping in the kitchen whenever he came to my house. Now he's almost fifteen and busy with school and football!

1 can(s)
chicken broth, low salt and fat free preferred
2 can(s)
favorite beans, navy or pinto for us;
2 small
onions, chopped;
ears corn, kernels from fresh corn;
1 slice
salt pork, for cooking onions and garlic;
cloves of garlic chopped;


1Saute onions,garlic and salt pork;combine with remaining ingredients, cook slowly for a few minutes to cook the corn. Serve with your meat of choice, and any leftovers may be reheated.
2This is such a comfort food, especially in the Fall or Winter; but with fresh corn during the Summer months it is great too with burgers, ham, pork or chicken!
3If fresh corn is not available use a small bag of frozen corn kernels!
*Note "my grandson is part Native American Indian, and this recipe was favored by his mother's family also.
4Note** My grandson says "no adding green pepper" when I suggested it!
Note***It is a wonderful change from plain beans; adjust the seasonings of course to suit yourself.
