Dice up your onion and set aside. Heat the oil over a medium-high heat.
I always make sure I look over the corn before I add it to the pan, I have found a few rocks here and there over the years. Stir in about 2 cups of the corn, making sure the corn is coated in the oil.
After about 5 minutes of that heating up, add in the diced onion and stir. At this point, I always sprinkle salt over as I stir.
If you have a grease gaurd place over the pan so the corn doesn’t jump out of the pan.
Keep stirring periodically, salt one more time and stir. When you see the corn change to a deep golden color (between 10 and 15 minutes) they are done. Remove from heat and pour in a bowl. Allow to cool a few minutes before enjoying!
