Rated 5 out of 5 by from Changing up the same old corn! First time ever having Mexican Street Corn, or making it for that matter. Talk about a great way to make corn even better! I will be making this for me often, my husband not so much. He doesn’t know what he is missing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Peasy Mexican Street Corn What an easy peasy recipe. It was fast and DELISH. Made after the Burger event with Jane. Company loved it with the Smoked Jalapeno stuffed burgers! PS: no fresh cilantro on hand!! No worries, I used 1 tsp of Si Si Cilantro!!
