No, seriously, this side came together in around 10 minutes. I could not believe the speed to delicious ratio. How does something get whipped up so quickly and simultaneously taste so good? Easy: use fresh and healthy ingredients.

Corn is certainly one of my favorite vegetables along with zucchini. And the best accompaniment that binds everything together is some good ole cheese. The herbs spices and lime take this dish over the top though.

Next time I make this dish, I am for sure adding some chopped up grilled chicken or shrimp to the bowl. Just all that flavor and juices combined together will be incredible!
