Mexican Street Corn Recipe

Recipe for Mexican Street Corn Dip

Happy Monday! I’ve got another recipe for you guys today that I think you’re going to love. (Especially if you’re a dip-a-holic, like myself.) Living in Texas, we eat Mexican food all the time. I’d never tried street corn until I moved down here, but it’s now one of my favorite additions to Taco Tuesday. Street corn is a side dish (served at most of my favorite taco joints) that consists of corn off the cob smothered in cream, cheese & various spices.

Now, I loooooove a good bowl of queso. But I thought I would spice things up a bit and try something new. I’m partnering with La Vaquita Cheese again today sharing my spin on Mexican Street Corn Dip. It turned out delicious enough that I couldn’t resist sharing it with you all. It’s equal parts cheesy, corny & absolutely delicious!

I’ve had so much fun teaming up with La Vaquita Cheese, sharing my favorite recipes where the signature ingredient, queso fresco, is my absolute favorite! (Texas peeps, you can find this cheese at HEB!) What I love the most about this recipe (apart from how delicious it is) is the fact that it only takes about 15 minutes to whip up.  I’m all about quick & easy recipes, especially when it comes to party food. Mainly because I’m usually pulling a dish together like this one just as I’m walking out the door too!

Speaking of parties, yesterday we went over to our friend’s place for a mid-day cookout/Daytona 500 watch party. The attire was “redneck chic” in honor of Nascar. I took it as an opportunity to dress Annie up in her cowboy boots, blue jeans & bandana headband. I still can’t get over how adorable she looked!! She is seriously like my own little doll and dressing her up is beyond fun. And of course, I had to match her in my cowboy boots and bandana choker! 😉

As always, thanks for stopping by the blog! Wishing you all a great week!
