How To Make The Best Grilled Mexican Street Corn

Our Go-To Summertime Recipe | Grilled Mexican Street Corn

Grilled Mexican Street Corn

Grilled Mexican Street Corn is one of our go-to side dishes in the summertime. Texas temps rise to over 90 and we’re headed out to the pool and ready to grill! We were first introduced to this dish while growing up in San Antonio. Also, Barbara and I would go to Southtown for the First Fridays art festival and what food would we gravitate towards?! The stands with the super flavorful, mouth-watering grilled Mexican street corn!

Who can resist the sweet and slightly smokey corn that’s slathered with a mayo and sour cream mixture and then seasoned to perfection with chili, lime, cilantro and cheese!?

It’s both nostalgic and delicious, which is why we also love to make it at home and you can too! Keep reading to see how we’re elevating this dish with a fresh take on traditional mayonnaise! Recipe below!

Chosen Foods Coconut Mayo

Recently, we came across a new kind of mayo from Chosen Foods that’s made from coconut! Ever since doing Whole30 in January we’ve become big fans of cooking with coconut so we were excited to try out this elevated mayo!

Now, this is a brand that we are proud to back and share with you!

      Hi Phyllis!

      That’s fantastic news! You can even set up a little DIY station with different cheeses, seasonings, citrus and herbs so you guests can customize to their liking or serve as is! Either way this delicious corn is sure to please 🙂

      Wishing you a wonderful weekend BBQ!
