A note about serious food allergies

Take a trip south of the border without leaving your kitchen. A simple yet delectable pan-seared chicken breast is bathed in a supple, spicy cilantro butter. Corn and red bell pepper are topped with cheese, more cilantro, and sour cream, becoming the perfect complement to the chicken. The cheapest Mexican vacation possible, but you'll find yourself returning to your special vacation spot again and again. Tip: To keep corn kernels from making a mess, place the ear of corn in a bowl and holding vertically. Cut downward, rotating corn as you go, so kernels end up in the bowl instead of scattered on your counter.
