Yummy Mexican Street Corn :: A Perfect Side Dish for Taco Tuesday!


mexican street corn recipe by Mandie Segura for Albuquerque Moms Blog

I don’t know about you and your family, but we are all about that street corn! Several years ago, my hubby and I decided to try our hands at making our own elotes, as we couldn’t find it served anywhere in the city. We’d make it using Creamland Fiesta dip with lime juice and feta, or with sour cream, lime juice, feta, and paprika, or sometimes a combination of those two. We’d eat it with burgers, tacos, or even fajitas. Not only is this one of our favorite recipes because it’s so yummy, but it’s super simple to put together quickly!

Cayenne pepper, to taste
Salt and pepper, to taste
