Sauteed Corn and Red Bell Pepper

Now that corn is in season in Texas, it is *everywhere*! So, in order to avoid boredom with grilled corn (our usual manner of cooking corn), I came up with this recipe. I usually have red bell peppers and cilantro on-hand in my fridge, so this came together so easily! Enjoy!
