Best Mexican Street Corn

June 23, 2015

This past year Mexican food has been all the rage with Mexican restaurants popping up all over the place. I have taken such a liking to this trend and crave Mexican food multiple times a week. I am actually going for Mexican tonight, haha! Every time I go to a Mexican restaurant I make sure to order the Mexican Street Corn, so by now I consider myself quite the expert. Jamie and I decided to make our own Mexican inspired corn the other night and we were so pleased with the end result. We also enjoyed homemade margaritas and guacamole which made for a really fun evening.
