Corn and Lima Bean Pudding
This delicious casserole, with vegetables baked in a nutmeg-scented egg custard, is a Brazilian favorite. For a touch of spicy heat, add some finely chopped malagueta pepper, the most widely used hot chile in Brazil, or your favorite chile pepper to the skillet with the onion and bell pepper.
