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!
