Traditional Mexican Street Corn in a Bowl

In Mexico you can buy Mexican Street Corn by street venders on a stick. Here we are grilling the corn, removing the kernels and mixing it up with the rest of the ingredients for a delicious side dish. Serves 4


1-2 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 ears of corn, shucked
Salt to taste
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 oz cotija or feta cheese, crumbled
1/2 cup (2) green onion, finely sliced (entire green onion)
1/2 cup cilantro leaves, finely chopped
1 jalapeƱo pepper, seeded and stemmed, finely chopped
1-2 medium cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
Red hot chili flakes, to taste
Cilantro leaves, to garnish


With your stove top grill or outside grill, season your corn with salt then grill until lightly charred, about 10 minutes.  When done and cooled enough to handle remove the kernels and add them to a bowl. Add remaining ingredients, adjust seasoning, if needed. Garnish with cilantro leaves. Serve immediately. Yum Yum!
