How much corn is on the cob?

Each ear of corn yields approximately 3/4 cup corn kernels. It really is the perfect serving of corn! You can eat it straight off the cob or chop off the kernels (be careful!) and eat with a fork.

Can you use this Mexican Grilled Corn for Mexican Street Corn?

You can! You can grill the corn as directed and then slice off the kernels and make Mexican Street Corn, Hot Mexican Street Corn Dip, or even Mexican Street Corn Salsa!

Is Mexican Corn on the Cob healthy?

Each serving of this Mexican Grilled Corn is just around 100 calories. We are using greek yogurt and light sour cream instead of mayo as some recipes use. Corn itself is not a food rich in nutrients, but this is certainly a light side dish that you can feel good about feeding your family.

When grilling corn on the cob do you remove the husks?

We have written the recipe in a way where you do remove the husks when grilling. That’s because I love the flavor that grilling brings to the  corn. Alternatively, you can leave the corn in the husks to grill. This will help the corn to be extra moist and juicy. You can open up the husks and add some butter and then close them back up…grill…and then remove the silks and husks. Some people prefer this method because of how it retains moisture, but I find I love the grill flavor too much to do it that way.
