I happened to have three leftover ears of cooked corn. I shaved the kernels and roasted them in a bit of EVOO, until they started to char. Substitute with canned or frozen, about 2 c worth. Trader Joe’s has a nice frozen bag of roasted kernels.

I added a few cherry tomatoes at the end, but only because I had a few that needed to be eaten. I used this along with sliced rotisserie chicken in a burrito with pumpkin chili mole. This dish can be eaten hot or cold.
