Elotes Mexicanos con Fruta (Mexican Street Corn and Fruit Salad) #SundaySupper

#SundaySupper, Comida Mexican, My Recipes

I will never forget the culinary experiences from my first trip to Mexico when I was a young girl of 19. While visiting a small town called Lagos de Moreno in the state of Jalisco. I spent a day tasting local dishes and one of my favorites was Mexican street corn that I purchased from a local vendor. Served on a stick, it was piping hot and drenched in a sweet chili-lime butter and dusted with cotija cheese. It was so delicious that I ordered another and kept revisiting the local vendor several times during my visit. He gave me his recipe and as soon as I returned back to California, I made some at a friend’s BBQ and everyone loved it. Perfect for tailgating or a backyard BBQ, Mexican Street corn is definitely a crowd pleaser. You can alter the recipe to your liking or create your own spin on this easy dish.


Another side I enjoy with Mexican street corn is a traditional Mexican fruit salad. Made with freshly cut fruit and chili powder, this is perfect for a warm summer day.

    Oh, my goodness. Corn, mayo and cheese are some of the best flavor combos on Earth! So glad the sweet vendor shared this savory corn dish recipe with you =)

    These are two of our favorite summer eats! I could probably eat 5 ears of that corn in one sitting…
