Print this recipe
Mexican corn is a delicious dish but it can take a lot of time to make this authentic street food. The corn needs to be grilled before being slathered in mayonnaise and dusted with paprika and cilantro. For those who don't have a grill or simply don't want to spend the time making it, there is an easier way. The recipe below takes all of those delicious flavors and packs them into a casserole that's much easier to make than corn on the cob and doesn't take a lot of time.
Because it's a casserole, you can also add many more flavors to it than you can to a corn of cob. In this dish you'll find the pop of jalapeños, tangy lime juice and lots of mozzarella cheese. The mayonnaise is still there, which is what adds to the creaminess of the dish, and lots of spices that make sure the entire thing is really packs a punch. When these flavors combine, you have delicious Mexican corn you can eat by the spoonful.
