Easy Mexican Street Corn

Fresh corn has been so good this summer, and I have a super fun way to serve it up! I’ve developed a little obsession with Mexican Street Corn after ordering it in quite a few places this summer and decided it was time to make it at home. I just love how fun and special it is (especially when having dinner guests over) for such little effort. If you have any leftover, it would be great cut off the cob and mixed with some black beans and tomatoes. So many ways to enjoy – yum!
