Here’s an update on my Allrecipes. Com recipe! It came in my email today!! Yay!! It came with some great slow cooker chicken recipes and then, in the second row – Ta Da! There I am. I have two reviews now here’s that post: Halloween Ghosties YIPEE!! I tried to give you the link, but it took you straight to my personal email and while I really like y’all, can’t let ya in there! On to my version of corn/lima bean combo and it is only 125 calories for ½ a cup. Since there is real cheese on it, that’s not bad at all! I had it for lunch yesterday, dinner last night, and will have it for lunch today.
Skillet Corn and Lima Beans Succotash
2 tablespoons butter go into a skillet to melt:
Then the fresh (frozen) corn:
Let it start browning – see how the sugars in the corn brown up?
Then, drain a can of Lima Beans and mix them in. Lima Beans are VERY high in iron.
After it’s all warmed up, sprinkle 1/3 cup of Mexican Style grated cheese on top and pop on the lid until it melts.
Add a little Paprika for color.
Oh – it was soooooo good!!
If it doesn’t rain today, I’m going to smoke some T-Bones for dinner and this will be my side dish along with salad and MAYBE a roll. That of course depends on how well I do today keeping the calories down.
Have a great weekend!
So glad you made it and it looks amazing! Thanks for the plug too 🙂 I will have to check out that link.
I am so embarrassed! I was going to email you and let you see it first, but my daughter who is about 100 miles away doing a training (and who always puts on my weekend potluck things) was in a hurry and published it out of draft so she could post them all on weekend Potluck. Thank you for being gracious and I hope you get lots of traffic – it’s number 20 – I think – this week. I just LOVE your site! Congrats on being Tonia’s favorite today. You will get tons of traffic from that alone!!
It is very exciting! And I don’t mind the mishap on the link 🙂
I’m not a big fan of lima beans, but that looks so good, I might have to try it.
I know! No one else in my family is a fan either so this is all mine! 🙂 English Peas or Black Eyed peas have the same texture and calorie count so if you like those …..at least I’m going to try them that way next time.
Love corn, love lima beans, love this idea. I would eat the whole thing for dinner and call it a day! 🙂
It was really hard not to do that myself, but if I had – the lower calories wouldn’t have helped !: )

Oh my, my, my – this looks amazing! I could see this as a side dish for when we want to enjoy a good steak on its own.
Yes and it is wonderful!! With steak sounds fantastic!
Yum! That looks delicious!!!
I check out your recipe! I want t smack the lady that gave you a low rating because peanuts should be avoided. What does that have to do with how yummy the recipe is??
Peanuts should only be avoided by those who are allergic! I think (or at least I hope) most people understand they shouldn’t make something like this if someone in class has one of those allergies! Some people – this lady included – is either herself or someone she loves has this allergy and she is hypervigilant and feels that others need to be too. If they aren’t (she would see someone like me as someone who is not) then she has the “right” to punish them. Many Americans feel that way – but you are right, I wanted to smack her too! : )
I have a friend whose son has severe allergies… peanuts, gluten, mangoes, eggs, and a few other I cannot remember. Poor kid. I like to believe she’d never go around punishing people who can eat those things… and that’s exactly how I see that. She’s punishing you for not being allergic. I wonder how many recipes she has given poor reviews to? At least most people know which reviews to disregard.
actually none – she has never done any reviews, just this one. You know, when I was a kid, the girl who sat next to me had juvenile diabetes (she passed away when we were in our 20’s) but as kids, even in 1st grade she knew better than to eat anything with sugar in it. Do kids not self-monitor anymore? Jules wasn’t some brainiac, just smart enough to know she could die if she ate it.
That’s so weird that she jumped on your recipe like that then. Weird.
Just after graduating college, I worked for a hotel owned by Hershey, just outside the park. I was assistant manager for the coffee shop and room service. We’d put chocolate bars on the room service trays. This family was staying there, didn’t let anyone know their kid had a peanut allergy, so it wasn’t noted on their account anywhere. Well, the room service runner put a Reese’s on their tray. The 10 year old ate it. It was a HUGE thing, and they were threatening to sue. WTF? Shouldn’t a 10 year old know not to eat Reese’s???? I mean, if it was a small child, I could understand, but 10??
Yep, like I said – everything is everyone else’s fault these days. You see, I could make the argument that a child welfare referral should be made because the parents, who knew the child was allergic, did not monitor the child’s health.
