Recipe Notes
1. Regular canned sweet corn or frozen corn may be substituted for the extra sweet corn. The closest measurement for either option is 3/4 cup, but feel free to use the whole 15-ounce can of corn.
2. 1 sweet onion or a bunch of green onions may be substituted for the red onion.
3. A single bell pepper may be substituted for the 1/2 cup each of chopped red and green bell peppers.
