The latest must-try TikTok recipe brings the Mexican Street Corn to the Nachos plate
What you need:
- 3 cups of corn kernels (fresh or frozen)
- 1 jalapeno diced
- 1/4 cup of sour cream
- 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons of fresh lime juice
- Shredded Cheese (Monterey Jack or Cheddar Cheese)
- Cotija Cheese
- Tortilla Chips
- Cilantro (this is a garnish)
What to do:
In a skillet, cook salt and pepper seasoned corn for approximately two minutes. Remove from the heat and add in one tablespoon of the lime juice and your diced up jalapeno.
Over in a small bowl, mix together the sour cream, mayonnaise, and the rest of the lime juice.
Take a baking dish and add your tortilla chips. Sprinkle the chips with your shredded cheese. Bake the chips at 375 degrees for five minutes.
Once your chips are out of the oven, top with the corn mixture, the sour cream/mayonnaise mix, and cotija cheese. Finally you garnish with the cilantro and you are good to go.
