Mexican Street Corn is traditionally made with corn on the cob. If you have ever been to Mexico you may have seen street vendors selling it from a cart. This easy recipe is a spin off using frozen corn and it makes a perfect side dish with tacos, or anything.
Tonight we had pork tacos for Taco Tuesday and this was so delicious not only as a side, but actually in the tacos. I love when I make tacos for dinner on a Tuesday without realizing it, it makes me feel like I am much more together than I really am. So whether your taco dinner happens to fall on a Tuesday or not, give this dish a try as I’m sure you will love it.
4 cups frozen corn
2 tbsp. butter
1/4 cup mayonaise
1/4 cup sour cream
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/4 cup cojita cheese
Mix together the mayo, sour cream, cumin, chili powder, and the juice of a lime in a bowl. Set aside.
Melt the butter in a frying pan over medium heat.
Add the frozen corn and cook until it is heated through while stirring frequently.
Turn off the heat and stir in the mayo mixture. Add the cojita cheese and stir until melted.
Serve with extra cheese if you prefer and topped with sliced scallions. Yum, yum!
