Spicy Grilled Street Corn - Perfect for Summer Grilling, Camping, and Cinco De Mayo

I love Mexican-themed food, especially side recipes that go with Mexican food. Some of my favorites are a black bean and corn salsa recipe that is so easy to make and goes great with any Mexican dish. This guacamole is absolutely delicious and enjoyed by everyone. Of course, what is a Mexican dinner without a delicious Jalapeno Cornbread?

I admit it. I’m a spicy food addict. I swear, every chance I get to throw Jalapenos into a recipe, you better believe I’m going to. And, this recipe was just screaming for Jalapenos. I obliged. Of course, I threw some in.  Honestly, the only kid at our dinner table who was brave enough to try corn slathered with spicy cream sauce was my 10-year-old, Michael. But, not everything I make is specifically for the kids. Hopefully, one of these days some of the others will broaden their taste buds. Until then, my husband, Michael, and I thoroughly enjoyed this corn. Ooh, Wee baby, it’s good! And, perfect for Cinco De Mayo

Ingredients

You’ll Need:

  • 6-8 Ears of Sweet Corn
  • 1/2 cup of sour cream
  • 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/4 – 1/2 tsp. chili powder – depending on how spicy you like it!

  • 1 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper

When the corn is ready, cut the twine off of the corn, peel back the husks, and slather the sour cream mixture onto the corn. Place it all on a platter and serve!

Or if you have guests or family members that might not want to indulge leave the corn alone, and let everyone slather their own. 🙂
