Cilantro, Chili, Lime Corn

Cilantro, Chili, Lime Corn

I love the combination of corn, chili, and lime flavors.  This dish is super versatile, you could add a diced jalapeno, some chili powder, a green pepper, or tomatoes.  Olive oil or butter would also add great flavor here, but I was going for a low-fat side.

-4 c corn (either fresh, or thawed frozen)
-1 onion, diced
-4 cloves garlic, minced
-3/4 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp pepper
-1 tsp cumin
-1/4 tsp cayenne
-1/4 bunch cilantro, chopped
-2 Tbsp light sour cream
-2 Tbsp lime juice

Coat a skillet with cooking spray.  Saute onion in skillet, over medium heat, until tender (about 5 minutes).  Add garlic, cook 1 minute.  Add corn, salt, pepper, cumin, and cayenne.  Saute an additional 5 minutes.  Remove from heat, stir in cilantro, sour cream, and lime, serve immediately.
