Game Day Provisions: Mexican Street Corn Dip


Game Day Provisions 

The Technique

Mexican Street Corn Dip

A good selection of appetizers & dips are always appropriate to serve guests when game day football parties are scheduled. Mexican Street Corn Dip is full of fresh flavor & perfect to offer football fanatics when tailgating. Crumbly queso fresco, roasted pepitas & minced jalapeños give this variation a lovely spicy, salty edge above the standard. Look to The Basics: Jalapeños for pointers on purchasing & gaging the heat so the desired level may be achieved. Accompany with an array of classic southwestern snacks including Jalapeño-Margarita Chicken Burgers, Game Day Queso Dip, Gridiron Guacamole, Homemade Salsa & Championship Caviar. A batch of Sweet Tea Margaritas complete the pass for a tailgate party filled with good taste.

 Trick Play

Using a blend of fresh & frozen corn kernels delivers intense flavor while shaving prep time off the clock. Expect the dip to be full of saucy flavor. Give it a good stir every now & then during the party.

2 ears fresh corn on the cob, shucked
1 cup crumbled queso fresco
1/2 cup sour cream
3 Tbsp fresh lime juice
1 Tbsp minced jalapeno
1 clove garlic, pressed
1 1/4 tsp chili powder
1 tsp kosher salt
1 {15-oz} bag frozen corn, thawed
1/4 cup diced red onion
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Garnishes: Freshly ground pepper, chili powder & queso fresco
Tortilla or corn chips

Grill the corn over direct Medium-High heat {350 to 400 degrees} 10 minutes, turning often, until charred. Cool 30 minutes. Cut the kernels from the cobs. Stir together the queso fresco & the next 6 ingredients in a bowl. Fold in the corn, the onion & the cilantro. Transfer to a serving bowl. Garnish, if desired. Serve with chips.

The Extra Point

Sprinkle the dip over a chicken, cheese & salsa topped flour tortilla for a lunchtime roll up.

How To Juice Fresh Limes

Limes can be used in both sweet & savory foods pairing well with just about anything making them extremely versatile. When choosing them from produce bins, select fruit with a bright, uniform color. Pick them up & gently press them in your hand. They should feel firm with a slight give to them. If the zest is desired, take care of that task first by running the outer portion over a microplane grater, then slice the limes in half for juicing. Extracting it is simple when the correct tool is used.

 When fresh lime juice is needed for recipe applications, it’s important to have the right device that will release every bit. A glass juicer where the reamer is set over a small bowl to collect the juice can be used or my preferred choice is a lime press. These valuable tools are generally coated with a non-reactive finish to prevent the acid from producing off flavors. Citrus halves can be placed in the custom fit compartment then the handles pressed together to extract the juice over a small bowl. It’s efficient enough to press every bit of juice quickly. Once the task is complete, the pulp & seeds, if any, will be left behind. Simply remove the used lime halves & discard them. Before adding the juice to recipe applications, pour it through a small fine wire mesh sieve to collect any seeds or unwanted bits of pulp that may be in the bowl.
