Mexican Street Corn 

One of the most popular street foods is Mexican-style corn. It’s most often prepared with white corn that isn’t quite as sweet as what we are accustom to however it’s just as delicious. It is usually boiled in water but grilling the corn gives it one additional layer of flavor. Although this version features a mild heat level, spicier chili powder may be substituted, if desired. It can be a bit messy too, so add a stick in to the cob just before serving to keep hands clean. Learn how to make a wonderful Mexican Street Corn perfect to serve for a variety of fall gatherings.
