Saute of Corn and Pepper

This vegetable side dish would be colorful with red sweet pepper or for a little more heat a jalapeno pepper. We have enjoyed fresh summer corn but frozen can be substituted.

1 Tablespoon butter
Saute of Corn and Pepper
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 cup sweet onion, finely diced
1/2 red sweet pepper or orange or jalapeno, finely diced
2 cups corn
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
salt and fresh pepper, to taste
1 teaspoon lime zest
3 Tablespoons basil, sliced

In a saute pan over medium heat, add butter and olive oil. Add onion and pepper and cook until soft, about 5 minutes.
Add corn, chili powder, salt and pepper and saute another 5 minutes.
Add lime zest and turn heat to low, cook another 2 minutes.
Add basil, stir and let sit another minute.
