MEXICAN STREET CORN

This may just be the new favorite way to make corn on the cob! Tangy, spicy, juicy, tender grilled corn that will make you wish you had more!

I’ve seen recipes similar to this on several social media sites. It always intrigued me but not enough to attempt it. Tonight was different. The baby daughter, who happens to be 4 months pregnant and experiencing strange cravings, was here for dinner. I mentioned this to her and her response was, “Yes! Let’s do it!” Who could say no?

I didn’t have all the ingredients listed in the other posts, so I used what I had and improvised the rest. That’s the beauty of cooking…make it your own by using what you have on hand! Here is the result.

INGREDIENTS
4 ears corn, grilled to perfection
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon “Some Like It Hot” seasoning (purchased from To Market To Market)
1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
salt and pepper, to taste

Mix all the ingredients (except the corn, obviously) in a large bowl. Slather the corn with the mixture and enjoy!

How simple was that? It may be simple to make but the flavors are amazing. We had to put another ear of corn on the grill for the baby girl because one just wasn’t enough.
