Mexican Street Corn



Mexican Street Corn is such an unusual yet delicious recipe. When my family and I were living in Oklahoma I first tried it at the Oklahoma State Fair. The state has a large Mexican community so I was able to try to many succulent foods. When you first try it you will not know what that flavor is and you will not care because it is good. The seasoning and lime really just make this recipe.

My husband and I decided to buy one of those indoor grills. We chose the Black and Decker Health Grill since the grease is not held in the pan. I am really amazed at this product. I made some steaks and corn on it last night and it was so good. You can not get a steak like that in the oven. Back home my mom has one of those massive gas grills and its the only thing I use when I am there. I am sure you will be seeing a lot more grilled recipes from me.

I also want to remind everyone about the "Let Them Eat Cake" monthly cupcake challenge. All entries should be emailed to me by the last day on the month and will be posted on the first. I have already got some in and they look amazing. You can read more about it here. I can not wait to see what you come up with.

4 ears sweet corn, husks removed
2 tablespoons oil
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons grill seasoning or a mix of chili powder and garlic salt
pepper
limes, quartered

1. Preheat a grill pan. Rub corn with oil and place on the grill pan, turning corn so all sides are charred, about 6 to 10 minutes. Meanwhile, mix together mayonnaise, grill seasoning and black pepper. Remove corn from grill and brush with the mayonnaise mixture. Serve with lime quarters to squeeze over corn.

Yields: 4 servings
