Mexican Street Corn Guacamole

Before I get too into the festivities of Memorial Day (as in eating all the things), I thought I would pop on to say hello, and also post this amazing recipe for Mexican Street Corn Guacamole. I’ve had a few of you asking for the recipe on Instagram, so I thought I should get this posted in case you need a quick and show-stopping appetizer for your parties and BBQs coming up this summer season.

Mexican Street Corn and Guacamole are two things I adore. Usually, Gordon and I head to a new Mexican restaurant in the city for date night every week and we never fail to order guacamole and Mexican Street Corn (and churros). You really can’t go wrong with either and I’ve posted recipes for both on my site: Mexican Street Corn, and Guacamole. So this past week when making some chicken quesadillas, I thought I’d make fancier guacamole to go with them and by golly, I liked the guacamole and chips better than the quesadillas. It was so good with all that cojita cheese on top paired with the crunchy corn and the creamy guacamole. MAN ALIVE is this the perfect food love child.

The only thing that makes this recipe take a little more time to make than the original is cooking the corn. I like to boil mine for 3 minutes and then let it cool. My mother in law wraps her corn in plastic wrap and microwaves it 1 minute per ear which is something I used to do, but since we have no microwave in our new place, we boil it (like we did with this Mexican Corn Salad! An optional step would be to throw the cooked corn on the grill to get a good char (or onto a gas stove burner), but like I said, totally optional.

Once it’s all made, cover it and store it in the refrigerator until ready to serve or eat it right away. The garlic and onion do get a little stronger as it sits, but only slightly. Serve with tacos, burritos, or as a stand-alone option with chips for a tasty appetizer.

There are a few step-by-step pictures below, along with a few more beauty shots because it was just so pretty to photograph! Scroll to the bottom for the printable recipe.

Have a great day, friends!

      Cotija is a hard and crumbly Mexican cheese. Comes in a round disc and vacuum packed in plastic. If you can’t find it, feta could be a good substitute, but definitely ask at the store if you can’t find it. Worth the search 🙂

    It took me a long time to try guac, and a long time to try mexican street corn, but I love them both! Now trying them married together!

    My daughters loved this! One hates avocados and one cannot handle corn, but add some chips and call it a dip and they were ALL in

    As a Mexican America myself I can’t think of two better things than fresh sweet corn and Guacamole! So why have I not thought of combining I have no idea! I can’t wait to try this recipe. This makes me happy to see real Mexican dishes with s twist unlike Taco Bell being named best Mexican restaurant in the US! Really? Lol
