Cajun Maque Choux Corn Recipe With Rice Is a Delicious Healthy Meal

Maque Choux is a Cajun recipe made with corn and other fresh vegetables. Served all over Louisiana, this easy corn recipe can be a side dish or a light meal when served over rice.

If you want a creamier maque choux, use heavy cream. If you want a lighter meal, use chicken broth. Either way, you'll be rewarded with a flavorful main dish or side dish.
