Quite honestly, the first thing that came to mind was maque choux. It's fantastic, and really easy to make. I make a variation of a recipe from Emeril that I think works well.
1/2 stick of unsalted butter
8 cups of corn (frozen kernels are fine)
1 medium yellow onion, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup minced jalepenos (serranos or other peppers will also work fine)
1/2 cup heavy cream
juice of 1/2 small lemon
cayenne pepper (optional)
fresh herbs (chives, oregano, or thyme work best)
Melt the butter. Cook onions and bell peppers until almost tender. Add garlic, corn, jalepenos, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper (if you wish to add more heat). Cook until everything is cooked through, about 10 minutes. Add heavy cream and adjust seasoning. Garnish with fresh herbs.
There are literally hundreds of variations of this classic dish. It also works well if you pour the mixture into a casserole dish, cover with cheese and broil. You can also add seafood if you like.
