Why I Love This Recipe

I hate lima beans. I dunno why, I just do. I used to pick them out of my food when I was a kid, and I taught my cat to eat them. That cat was kinda nuts- he used to drag Doritos into the corner and kill them before eating them, growling the entire time. So anyway, I make mine with butter beans instead.

Ingredients You'll Need

3 ears Corn, blanched 5min in boiling water, cut from cob
1 Vidalia Onion
1 stalk Celery
1 green Bell Pepper
3 cloves Garlic
8oz or so cubed smoked Ham
1 can Butter Beans w/liquid
Salt & Pepper
add'l liquid (water, milk, or veggie or chicken stock) as needed


* Melt butter over medium heat in Dutch oven.

* Add corn, onion, celery, pepper, garlic and ham. Saute til veggies begin to wilt and carmelize and ham may slightly brown; add more butter as needed so as not to scorch.

* Add beans and liquid from can. Season to taste w/peppers and salt; stir frequently and cook 15-20min, adding add'l liquid if needed so as not to scorch.

* I served w/shrimps sautéd in butter, wine, bay and GOOD bottled cocktail sauce (I used Lighthouse from Buffalo NY)- place right atop servings of succotash.
