Mexican Street Corn Keeps Your Taste Buds Guessing

The first time I had Mexican street corn, I was in heaven. While I’ve always loved that classic butter corn on the cob, this was the good stuff with loaded toppings that had my taste buds guessing.

Here, we show you how to make Mexican corn three ways – the first has tangy feta and garlic mayo, then we’ve got some sour cream, taco seasoning and cheddar cheese, and last (but not least) a cob with kick including sour cream, pickled jalapeno and everyone’s fave sriracha. Don’t forget the cilantro, and with a quick cook-time you’ll be bringing some spice to the fiesta!
