Mexican Street Corn

Mexican Street Corn Recipe

I had a version of this while visiting a friend in Texas.  I couldn’t believe how great this dish tasted.  My friend had told me about it before and was looking forward to going and getting some when we visited.  It was made in a little food cart in front of a gas station.  When I got home, I was determined to create it myself.

I searched on the internet and sure enough, some one had taped them making it at the food cart.  They even tried to break down the ingredients word for word.  I made a few changes, such as, I prefer frozen or fresh corn, while they used canned corn.  And it took a while to find the table cream and queso (they are both refrigerated in the cheese section of the grocery store).

I am telling you, I make it for the kids just as a snack sometimes because its so easy and tasty!
