Anytime Succotash

(2 Votes)
20 Min

We've got the South to thank for this simple and wonderful veggie side dish. Loaded with sweet shoepeg corn and buttery lima beans, our Anytime Succotash is just as good served with your chicken dinner, as it is served on a special occasion.  

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (12-ounce) package frozen lima beans
  • 1 (12-ounce) package frozen corn
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons bacon bits
What To Do:
  1. Cook lima beans according to package directions; drain and set aside.
  2. Pulse corn in a food processor 8 to 10 times, or until coarsely chopped.
  3. In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt butter; add flour, stirring until smooth. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly; stir in sugar, salt, and pepper. Gradually add milk, stirring until smooth. Add corn and cook 12 to 15 minutes, or until corn is tender and mixture is thickened, stirring often. Stir in lima beans. Garnish with bacon and serve immediately.

For savory creamed corn, simply follow the recipe above, omitting the lima beans.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Very good! I did not run the slightly thawed corn thru food processor. Perhaps not as creamy, but I like the texture better and it saves a step and some cleanup. Added a small amount of chopped green pepper and minced onion. Great side dish that is fairly quick and easy.

I am not a fan of the lima bean so I'll use edamame

the frozen shoepeg, is it processed while frozen or is it at room temp and drained?
