Mexican Street Corn

No summer fiesta is complete without Mexican Street Corn. Made with creamy sauce, sweet corn, and salty crumbles of Cotija cheese, there’s a reason why this side is a favorite at warm weather get-togethers. Your NESCO Roaster Oven is the key to achieving tender, buttery corn on the cob. Simply preheat, set, and wait 35-40 minutes until corn is soft. Garnished with fresh cilantro and red chili powder, Mexican Street Corn adds a beautiful pop of color and flavor to your table.
