bacon and peppers

To make squaw corn you start by cooking your bacon. Once it’s cooked through remove from the pan (place on paper towel to soak up the grease) and add peppers and onions to cook in the bacon grease.

Bacon and Corn

Cook veggies for about five minutes on medium heat and then you can add bacon back in. Next up comes the corn!

I like to allow mine to simmer for about an hour so the flavors really mix together well. Once your ready to serve transfer to a pretty casserole dish or bowl and your Squaw Corn is all set!
