Mexican Street Corn recipe off the cob

Little fun food fact- Cinco De Mayo has nothing to do with beer, chips, and salsa (no, for real, read the history of Cinco De Mayo) but since it evolved to that in the good ole United States, who am I to discharge a great reason to enjoy salsa, guacamole and Mexican street corn?

No one, that’s who.

So let’s Celebrate!

I love fresh corn, right off the cob, shaved off into salads and chunky salsas. And although my family is weird and can do without, being right on the cob is simply heaven to this mama. And bonus when its on the grill like this Mexican street corn recipe is.
