I used frozen green beans and corn – but you can use fresh or canned just as easily. I always err on the side of less salt so that people can salt to taste, as needed.
We got some feedback that the tablespoon of pepper was too spicy, especially for kids. I cut it back to 1 teaspoon with a comment to add another teaspoon if you prefer it a little hotter. You can always allow people to add additional salt and pepper by the bowl as well.
