The word succotash comes from a Narragansett Indian word meaning, "boiled whole kernels of corn". The heat in this version can be adjusted, depending on the type of chili used.
Prepare beans according to package directions.
Cut corn kernels off cobs. Heat butter, margarine or oil; sauté onion over low heat until translucent. Add corn. Cook 5 minutes over low heat. Add Poblano chilies, zucchini and water. Cook for 15 minutes or until water is absorbed; stirring occasionally. (Corn will caramelize slightly). Season with salt and pepper. Makes 8 servings.
