Jump to Recipe
Roasted Corn is fab this time of the year. I love the fresh corn grilled with some lemon and chili powder, or loaded on occasion. Elote style loaded corn can be a bit messy, so I decided to make it off the cob. Add to it some black beans for a heartier dip/salad and a dollop of chipotle mayo and you are ready for the Summer potluck!
I use corn kernels to make a super quick roasted corn in a skillet. When I have time I grill the corn, shuck the kernels as use. You can also use preroasted/fire-roasted kernels. Many options! This roasted corn bowl is amazing as is as a dip, with some tortilla chips to scoop, or as tacos. Add a drizzle of chipotle mayo to take it to the next level. and of course loads of cilantro. Whats your fave corn side for summer?
