    I love Mexican street corn off the cob because it’s way less messy and you can get so much more of it.

    Let’s be real, when you eat corn on the cob, you don’t really get all the kernels because there’s always some parts of it left on the cob.

    With Mexican street corn off the cob, you get every morsel (or kernel) and you are able to get so much more of it.

    Not to mention, you won’t have the need to floss immediately after.

    How is this different from your original Mexican street corn off the cob recipe?

    This poblano Mexican street corn off the cob recipe has subtle variations off my original Mexican street corn off the cob recipe but I think you’ll enjoy the subtle variations.

    For one, this poblano version is creamier because I ended up using a more butter and mayo ratio.

    It has a smokier flavor because of the roasted poblano peppers and the lime squeeze gives it a nice burst of tang and zing.

    Can I use frozen corn?

    Yes, that’s what I did this time because sweet corn isn’t around just yet.

    Just thaw it and make sure it’s warm (microwave or stovetop).

    Can I grill the corn on the cob first?

    Yes! That’d be so good.

    I can’t find cotija cheese.

    You can use feta!

    I don’t like cilantro.

    Friend, neither do I. I think it tastes like soap…which is why I used parsley in this!

    Can I use another type of pepper if I can’t find poblano peppers?

    Poblano peppers are fairly mild in flavor and heat so if you can’t find poblano peppers, I would just opt to make the original Mexican corn off the cob recipe.

    If you used something like a green bell pepper, it would overpower the rest of the flavors of the dish and if you used another pepper, it might be too spicy.

    Can I serve this cold?

    I think it is best room temperature!

    How does this keep?

    You can keep it in the refrigerator for up to three days but eating it as soon as possible is the best.

    You likely won’t have a problem with this keeping though, lol
