Corn salad with a little bit of everything.
Start by dicing your bacon and adding it to a dry skillet over medium high heat. Cook until crispy, about 6 minutes, and then remove the bacon and set aside.
Drain all of the bacon grease, but don’t clean the pan. Add in olive oil, still over medium high heat and add onion and jalapenos. Cook until the onions are translucent and then add the roasted red pepper and garlic. Cook for about another 3 minutes.
Lower the heat to medium low, cut the kernels off the cob and add to your mixture. Cook for about 3-5 minutes, or just until the corn is done. Turn off the heat.
Add salt, pepper, cooked bacon, and chopped cilantro and stir to combine.
Place in a bowl and serve warm with a little extra chopped cilantro on top for garnish.
While my hubby used frozen fries (which also work great), this recipe starts from scratch, because I have plenty of potatoes in the bin. The fries come out crisp without being fried while the seasoning adds a nice flavor with a little kick of spice. This recipe will please husbands, wives, kids … even in-laws!
Cassava, also known as yuca, was one of my discoveries when visiting the Mexican vendors at my local flea market. Although the root vegetable is not indigenous to Mexico I seasoned this dish with some popular Mexican seasonings, then roasted it and enjoyed it (along with a couple of cold Dos Equis)!
Grilled fresh corn on the cob.
The big debate? Cook with husks on or husks off? I say husks off! Cook on the grill, this way the sweet corn kernels get a smoky-grilled flavor. There’s no need to blanch it first. Use a stove top grill or outside grill–just peel, remove silk and place right on the grill. Simple as that! Then top it with a homemade chili lime mayo and fresh cilantro.
