Street Corn Recipe [Torchy's Tacos]

Street Corn from Torchy's Tacos

Torchy's Tacos is one of my all time favorite Austin restaurants.  About a year or so ago (it has probably been a lot longer...time flies), they added street corn to their menu and it has become a must order for me.  They actually shared their recipe with Austin Monthly and I have made it a time or two, so I thought I would pass it along since it is such a fun summer treat!

Torchy's Taco Street Corn via Austin Monthly:

What you need (per person):

1 large cob of corn
1 ounces mayo or spiced mayo
1 1/2  ounces queso fresco
New Mexico red chile powder (garnish)
Cilantro (garnish)

What you do:

Peel and shuck corn to remove husks and place directly on the grill (high heat) turning every 2 minutes.  You want the corn to be slightly blackened on all sides.

Cut corn kernels from off of the cob and mix corn with may and queso fresco.  Dish up individual servings and then garnish with cilantro and New Mexico red chili powder.

Just FYI - New Mexico red chili powder is different than regular chili powder, but in a pinch I have used plain old chili powder and no one died.

I don't eat ground beef so next time I make hubby taco's I'm going to make this for me and make the perfect enchilada. Add a little chopped tomato and lettuce. Yummy!

I LOVE Torchy's Tacos!!! I will have to try the street corn. They just opened up one in Cedar Park close to where I live. Sadly, my hubby doesn't like them, so I have to go by myself!
