Corn Maque Choux “mock shoe”


My mother-in-law introduced me to this traditional Cajun side dish and it became a family favorite.


Y’all know me.. I gravitate toward recipes with simple ingredients and it doesn’t get any more simple than this!


  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small onion
  • 1/2 red bell pepper
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 16 ounce bag frozen corn
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • salt/pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cajun Seasoning


Slice, dice and chop up your onion, pepper, and celery.  If my celery leaves look nice and green, I chop those up and stick them in there too.


In a large skillet, melt your butter and then add your chopped vegetables. Sprinkle on just a bit of salt, pepper and Cajun seasoning (about 1/4 teaspoon of each).  You can add more later if needed.


Saute your vegetables until the onion is wilted looking and then add your bag of corn. Stir and then cook for another 2 minutes.


Sprinkle your flour over the vegetables and stir this together.  It will quickly turn to a thick mixture.


Add your milk and mix this all up.  Taste and add more salt, pepper or Cajun Seasoning if needed.


This vegetable side dish is so full of flavor and when you add the Cajun seasoning, it gives just a kick.  Love it!  Enjoy!
