Same great recipe, new look! I get requests for this recipe all of the time and it tastes so good.

My Mexican Street Corn is the perfect combination of savoury, salty and sweet.
I’m sure you’ve had corn on the cob but I bet you’ve never had corn taste like this before. This dish has so many great flavours coming together. Grilled corn, salty feta cheese, savoury chipotle Greek yogurt & mayo,  hot chilli flakes and zest of lime juice. I love grilling the corn on the cob on the barbecue for maximum flavour. Slather on the delicious savoury mix and you can’t help but be hooked!
