Mexican Corn Salad | Anchors Aweigh


Mexican Corn Salad

My husband has a minor corn obsession. If I serve green beans with dinner, I usually get a "you know, corn is so much better". He'd eat it daily if I would just oblige and serve it daily. I am always on the lookout for different recipes that involve corn (Kentucky Spoonbread and Scalloped Corn are a couple of favorites!). 

When I stumbled upon this Mexican Corn Salad, I was instantly intrigued. I have also seen it called "Mexican Street Corn". Call it whatever you want, it's straight up delicious! Parker loved it, and it made the perfect side dish!

2 Tbsp butter
2 cans of corn, drained
1/2 jalapeno, seeded and diced
3 Tbsp mayo
1 tsp minced garlic
1 lime, juiced
2 Tbsp shredded Colby Jack cheese
1/8 tsp chili powder
handful of cilantro, chopped

1. Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat.
2. Add corn and allow it to char on the bottom of the pan. Then, stir and char one more time.
3. Add diced jalapeno, stir together, and remove from heat. 
4. Place corn mixture into a medium bowl and add mayo, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, cheese, and chili powder. Stir together to combine. 
5. Serve warm or chilled. Both are good!

Ooh! I just bought two cans of HEB organic corn yesterday!! Wasn't sure what I was gonna do with them but had to get them cause it's rare they have organic corn. May have to try this recipe!

Umm this looks AMAZING! My mom made the most delicious corn for Thanksgiving, all you did was put 3 cans of corn in the crockpot on high, top with a cut up block of cream cheese and cut up stick of butter and let it go for 2 hours. When you stir it all together, add in a tsp. of sugar and some pepper -- OMG it was SO freaking good! (If you can't tell, I love corn, too!)

Wow. That really does look delicious. I've never heard of this before, but now I'm gonna have to give it a try.

I randomly came across this recipe on Pinterest a few months ago, and we both loved it!! We're not even big corn eaters around here - we like salads and green things more - but it was soooo good.
