Roasted Mexican Street Corn - You can easily make the classic Mexican street food right at home now. BAKED OR GRILLED! And this cream sauce is TO DIE FOR!!

I am currently enroute to West Palm Beach.

It’s for work.

Promise.

Because I did tell Butters that I would never leave him ever again.

But, duty calls.

So before I “work” and jump into the warm ocean here, let’s talk corn.

Mexican street corn, actually.

This is a favorite of mine.

Even though I’ve never actually been to Mexico.

Or had their street food.

But!

I always snag one of these at the local farmers market.

Dousing it in chili powder. And cotija.

Because. Well, hello.

The more the better.

But really.

This garlicky-lime cream sauce is simply perfection.

You can even get rid of the corn altogether and just have a side of the sauce with some chips.

Just a thought, guys.
