Mexican Street Corn
Fire up your taste buds with the taste of Mexican street corn packed into a delicious pasta salad! Mexican street corn is a common Mexican street food that is made by grilling corn on the cob and then coating it with a mixture of mayonnaise, sour cream, cotija cheese, chile powder, and lime. You can enjoy the flavors of that South of the border street food mixed with the heartiness of pasta. You can use fresh corn in the summer or grab a great bag of frozen kernels to use in the offseason! This is a great side dish to grilled chicken or steak or even an entire entree when served alongside a green salad! Enjoy!
