Corn not in season? No problem! You can make this recipe any time of year with 6 cups frozen corn kernels. Try cayenne pepper in place of chili powder if you like your corn extra spicy.

YESSSSS! So good! I like to eat this along side my grilled shrimp. Only thing I do differently is char the corn a bit after cooking it for that smoky flavor that I adore so much!

This Mexican corn bowl was mouthwatering! A lot less messy than eating it off the cobb, that's for sure. I also really liked the Cotija, because I usually would use parmesan. This was really good, and the perfect addition to taco night!

Love this bowl version of Mexican corn! So delicious! Is there really any other way to eat corn? It has all the basic ingredients you need: lime, chili, mayo, and Cotija cheese. Perfection!
