It Goes with Any Main Course

This goes well as a side serving beside any main course, like roast potatoes and chicken, or why not make an “à la carte” selection of vegetables if you’re a vegan? Even better, if you plan on making nachos the right way, this style of corn is a great topping and adds a bit of variety to your regular meals. Speaking of main courses, I love these Vegan Fajitas with Portobello Mushrooms if you are looking for some Mexican inspired meal inspiration.

Mexican Street Corn Grilling Tips

You’ll want to start off by grilling the corn to perfection. Remove their husks, drizzle them with some vegetable oil or olive oil, and give them a quick grill. Be sure to turn them often, so they don’t overcook on any side! The timing will definitely vary depending on your grill and the size of the corn cobs, so this is merely a guide.

This grilling method gives the corn that succulent texture with the charcoaled edges for that well-balanced blend of sweet and savory. You can also keep the husks for later if you plan on serving them up in style, as they make a wonderful contrasting element to the dish.

Although, if you do plan on keeping them on the ends of the corn cobs, did you know you can easily turn the cobs on the grill by pulling on the husks? That way, you don’t burn your fingers, you keep the husk decoration, and it makes this step much easier – so it’s a total win-win!

Then, you’ll mix together cotija cheese, lime, and chipotle pepper (or chile powder) to make the special topping mix for the corn. And don’t forget that yummy cheese to top it off! If you can’t find cotija cheese near you, you can try to substitute feta cheese.
