Esquites (Grilled Street Corn Salad)
Spice up your Esquites!
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
4 ears corn on the cob, kernels removed (about 3 cups corn kernels)
2 oz. feta or Cotija cheese, finely crumbled
½ cup thin green onion slices (green parts only)
½ cup fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 Tbsp. mayonnaise
Juice from 1 lime
⅛ tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. Fajita (Seasoning Blend)
Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over high heat.
Add the corn, then season it with the salt. Toss the corn just once or twice, then cook it, without stirring, for 2 minutes or until the bottoms of the corn kernels are charred. Stir the corn, then continue to cook it for 10 minutes or until all of the corn kernels are evenly charred on all sides, stirring every 2 minutes.
Spoon the charred corn into a large bowl. Add the cheese, onions, cilantro, peppers, garlic, mayonnaise, lime juice and the Fajita Seasoning Blend; mix lightly.
Season the corn with additional salt and/or Fajita Seasoning Blend to taste, if desired.
