Mexican Street Corn Salad (Esquites)

Y’all tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo, and I know it’s not an American holiday but I feel like we’ve adopted it and made it our own. Honestly, it’s probably one of my favorite holidays. Because what better way to celebrate than with guacamole, chips, salsa, tacos and margaritas! Now, that is MY kind of party!

As I was trying to think of what to make I realized I have a lot of unique recipes out there, but not a lot of “basics.” Well, today we are going back to the basics. Mexican Street Corn is all the way – but in salad form! You’re gonna love it!

What is Mexican Street Corn – AKA Elote?

墨西哥街头玉米或exote是甜玉米,在敞开的火焰上烤,直到它在各方略微烧焦。然后玉米片酸奶膏和蛋黄酱组合,然后在崩溃的辛基塔奶酪中卷起,并用辣椒粉,香菜和石灰汁涂上饰出来!它在地球上实际上是天堂!

What is Esquites?

好的,现在你知道exote是什么,让我们谈谈Esquites。基本上,Exote在玉米棒上烤玉米,上面的所有事情都在上面的东西上,它带着壳,带下来制作手柄。Esquites或墨西哥街玉米沙拉是同一个玉米,它只是从玉米棒中取出,并在一个带石灰汁,辣椒粉,辣酱,cotija奶酪,盐和梅奥的杯子里供应杯子。所以一个是在玉米棒上,另一个是玉米棒。

My version of Esquites is similar to the original but a bit different because I add a few extra ingredients because I like amp things up a bit!

Esquites成分

  • 甜玉米:我更愿意在这个食谱中使用新鲜的玉米,因为我烧烤它以增加额外的味道。但是,如果您只有罐头或冻结,您也可以使用它。
  • 烤红Pepper:我喜欢烤红辣椒的颜色和味道的流行,而不是新鲜的味道的味道很好,与玉米沙拉的其余部分完美。
  • 葱:I like to add sliced green onions to this fresh corn salad to brighten it up a bit.
  • Cojita Cheese:这是一个易碎的墨西哥奶酪,通常是一个街区,你自己崩溃了。它看起来像羊乳酪,但它的咸很多!它也崩溃了炸炸玉米饼。
  • Cilantro:Adding fresh herbs at the end of a dish always brings a dish together and brightens it up!
  • 黑豆:Adding black beans gives this salad more “protein” and makes it a little more of a meal as opposed to a light side. If you want to leave the black beans out, that’s ok too.
  • 敷料:通常在一个cr墨西哥街头玉米是涂满eam sauce made from mayonnaise, sour cream (or Mexican crema) and a few other items. My version has a little bit of mayonnaise, greek yogurt, lime juice, chili powder, ancho chili powder (for some heat) and smoked paprika. It’s like a chili lime cream sauce that you’ll be obsessed with!

How to Make Esquites/Mexican Street Corn Salad

I like to make my Mexican Street Corn on the grill instead of sautéd in butter. It adds another flavor dimension from the smoky grill and you’re not adding butter to the dish either, which saves on calories. Here’s how to make esquites:

  1. Preheatgrill to medium high heat, about 375-400°F.
  2. 制作辣椒霜酱:to a small bowl add mayo, plain yogurt, lime juice, smoked paprika, chili powder, chipotle chili powder, salt and pepper. Whisk until combined and smooth. Set aside.
  3. 烤肉玉米:刮玉米,直接放在烤架上。烧烤每侧3-4分钟,或直到所有侧面略微烧焦,然后从烤架上取下并冷却。一旦玉米冷却下来,将玉米切掉玉米棒子进入一个大型刀子的大碗。
  4. Assemble Salad:到玉米加入玉米加入烤红辣椒,新鲜的香菜,葱,cotija奶酪,黑豆和辣椒石灰霜酱。用勺子轻轻地折腾,用酱汁涂抹一切。

Tips for the Best Esquites:

Obviously, when you go to the internet you’re going to find thousands of ways to make an epic Mexican corn salad. Here are the tips & tricks I use to make my dish pop.

  • Grill it, don’t pan sear it.Yes, the traditional recipe calls for you to sauté the corn in butter. But honestly you get so much more flavor if you use fresh corn and place it directly on the grill. The char flavor adds a smoky flavor that sautéing in butter just cannot!
  • Chili Powder is a key component to Mexican street corn.It’s what you see sprinkled on top of the corn right before serving. I like to use two different kinds of chili powder. One that has that classic chili powder taste and then an ancho chili powder, made from ancho chilis that gives just a little bit of spice to change up the flavors.
  • 在服务前加入酱汁和新鲜的Cilantro, this keeps the integrity of the dish so it doesn’t get soggy. Keeping the cilantro for the end brightens the dish right up and keeps it at it’s freshest state!
  • Serve it warm.You can serve this corn salad warm or cold, I just like it warm because it reminds me of the way Mexican street corn is served. Fresh and hot off the grill!
