Mexican, Corn, Recipe
I have seen recipes for Mexican Street Corn popping up all over Pinterest. I love Mexican food and corn so I had to give it a try. I asked my brother who lived in Mexico for two years if he had ever tasted it. He said he loves the stuff and offered to be a taste tester.
After playing around in the kitchen for a while, this is the recipe I came up with. My brother loved it and said it taste just like the stuff he had in Mexico. I am in love with it too! I like that it is different then the traditional beans and rice as a side. If you have never tried Mexican Street Corn, give it a try. I have a feeling that you are going to love it.
With love from my kitchen to yours,
