How to Make Susan's Southern Succotash
- Cook lima beans until tender. Drain. Drain and rinse corn.
- Combine all ingredients in an iron skillet, and cook everything in the butter until tender and heated through, stirring and scraping pan frequently.
- If adding tomatoes, wait until about 5 minutes before serving to stir them in. Handle gently so they don't break down, just heat through.
