2 tbsp vegetable oil (or opt for olive oil)
2 corn stalks with husks

¾ cup of red, orange, and yellow pepper combination (seeded and diced)
1 (15 ounce) can of black eyed peas (drained and rinsed)
6-8 pickled jalapenos, chopped finely (found in the mexican aisle)

2. Shuck the husk off the fresh corn and place corn in oven and lightly roast until kernels start to turn light brown (approx 25-30 mins)
