A quick and easy one pan dish that my mom and grandmother used to make. Can be made with or without the onion, and goes really great with cornbread. It’s got a hint of sweetness from the corn, and a little kick from the chili powder. It can be easily doubled or even tripled for large crowds (and trust me, I have had to make a lot for my family). It’s a great dish for those with very little time or money.
