Roasted Mexican Street Corn

You can easily make the classic Mexican street food right at home now. BAKED OR GRILLED! And this cream sauce is TO DIE FOR!!

I am currently enroute to West Palm Beach.

Because I did tell Butters that I would never leave him ever again.

So before I “work” and jump into the warm ocean here, let’s talk corn.

Mexican street corn, actually.

This is a favorite of mine.

Even though I’ve never actually been to Mexico.

Or had their street food.

I always snag one of these at the local farmers market.

Dousing it in chili powder. And cotija.

Because. Well, hello.

The more the better.

This garlicky-lime cream sauce is simply perfection.

You can even get rid of the corn altogether and just have a side of the sauce with some chips.

Just a thought, guys.

THIS was FABULOUS. I grilled it and will be making it again for sure! I used Pepper Jack cheese. Still a 10+.

Yum, this looks so tasty, can’t wait to give this a try. I to, never had Mexican corn on the cob and can’t wait to give it a try.

what should i serve these with for dinner? really want to make these, but as a side dish with a meat or taco or something?

They are great as a side dish if you’re having a BBQ or even a steak salad. Tacos or any kind of meat dish is also a great idea. You really can’t go wrong with these! Have fun!

So you cook the corn in their own husks plain and only rub the mixture on just before serving? Can these be grilled?
