Mexican Street Corn

Friday, May 10, 2019
Last weekend I decided that I wanted to prepare a dish to get in the feels of Cinco De Mayo. One that I have wanted to try for a while was Mexican Street Corn.

The first time I had this amazing Mexican dish was at a…you guessed it….a Mexican restaurant. It’s called Tiki Taco and it was amazing. Now, I will be honest and say that mine didn’t turn out as amazing as theirs. But, I feel prety good to say whenever I have a random craving for it I can remake at home.

Mexican Street Corn is pretty basic. You get a corn on the cobb, add some mayo, cheese, spices, sprinkle some lime juice over top, and BAM.

One thing that I will note is that it’s very important to pick out a good corn so that it has that naturally sweet taste. Something about the sweetness from the corn mixed with the tangy spiciness of the sauces it what really brings this dish together.

I also think that choosing the right cheese matters most importantly. Most recipes call for using cojita cheese or crumbled feta. But, ya’ll know me. I tend to use what I have my kitchen already. I used parmesan cheese.

Parmesan cheese is still a very good substitute, but I think next time I will stop being lazy and actually search for the cojita cheese.
