Mexican street corn in a skillet version for those times when grilling is not an option. I made this version lighter by using lower fat and calorie ingredients. This recipe is super fast, so it can be whipped up at the last minute if necessary.

I really enjoyed this. I used cojita cheese, but instead of Greek yogurt, I used sour cream. Also added a few roasted hot banana peppers chopped up for a little “heat”. Other than that, I followed the recipe to a “T”! Will make again (and again!) Read More

Loved this! I used sour cream instead of yogurt and didn't have cotija cheese since I am currently living in China, but it was great nonetheless. Thanks for sharing! Read More
