How To Make Mexican Street Corn At Home

Mexican Street Corn

How to make Street Corn at Home: The best Mexican Street Corn is made my smearing piping hot corn on the cob with mayonnaise and dredging it with Queso or Cotija cheese, fresh cilantro(optional), chili powder, lime and plenty of salt and pepper.

The mayonnaise melts right into the corn to take on a whole new flavor and acts as the glue to hold everything together. It’s incredibly tasty, as well as addicting and very messy which somehow makes it all the more enjoyable to eat.
