Cooktop Cove: How to make Mexican street corn casserole
If you've never had Mexican street corn, you need to stop what you're doing right now and go make some. Traditionally, this dish is created by grilling ears of corn before slathering them with mayonnaise and spices and then rolling them in cheese. However, let's face it. That can be a lot of work. Make it easier on yourself by taking all of those ingredients and piling them into a casserole dish, as in the recipe that follows.
Frozen corn kernels get mixed up with veggies and a creamy sauce composed of mayonnaise and sour cream. If you can find queso fresco cheese, by all means, go ahead and use that to top the casserole. For those that can't, a bit of grated Parmesan will do just fine. It only takes a few minutes to prepare, and then it all gets a short bake in the oven before being sprinkled with chopped cilantro for a fresh burst of flavor.
