Ingredients

  • 4 12oz cans of peaches and cream corn
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium red bell pepper
  • 1 medium orange bell pepper
  • 1/3 cup minced red onion

Instructions

  • Add butter and corn to a large pot on medium heat.

  • Return pot to the stove and add olive oil and sweet peppers. Cook on medium heat for 10 minutes, until tender.
  • Add salt, pepper, paprika, garlic, onion powder, thyme, and oregano. Once incorporated add mixture to your bowl and stir together with cooled corn.
  • Add onion, basil, mint, and lime juice. Store in the fridge until ready to eat.
  • In a small fry pan on medium heat add finely chopped chorizo and stir for 5 minutes until crispy.
  • Serve the salad in a large bowl and top with crispy fried chorizo.
