When I think of Mexican Street Corn Salad or “esquites” in Spanish I cannot help, but to be transported to my unforgettable and fun childhood memories. Those times when the street vendor would drive by our small home and we would all rush out to buy one or better yet the times when my mom would decide to make these for us on hot summer days. Oh how I miss and loved those days!

So Mexican esquites are one of the most popular street foods in Mexico, but they have become extremely popular here in the US as well. They are inexpensive to make and taste amazing! They make for a great snack.

“Esquites” are a delicious Mexican street food that uses corn kernels as the main ingredient. It gets its flavor from the broth that it is prepared in as well as the accompaniments which consist of cotija cheese, cilantro, lime, and chile powder.

Nowadays you can find them at almost any Mexican place or they are present at gatherings with friends and at birthday parties. We recently had them served at my nieces’s graduation party, I arrived late and did not have any and I have been craving them ever since so I decided to make my own at home.

Also now that we are approaching Hispanic heritage month there’s no better time to celebrate Hispanic culture through dishes and ingredients so I’ve decided to bring all of you a delicious recipe that you can make at home of Mexican Street Corn Salad.

I have created my own McCormick Mexican Street Corn Salad that features McCormick Mayonesa (mayonnaise with lime!) that is available at Walmart. With McCormick Mayonesa’s distinct lime-flavor, it’s the perfect (and delicious!) ingredient to use when creating recipes that celebrate your Hispanic heritage!

You may want to check out the recipe for yourself and create at home too so check it out here.

I visited Walmart to purchase the most important ingredient McCormick Mayonesa (mayonnaise with lime!) which will make all the difference in the world with this recipe and quite honestly it wont taste the same without it.

At home I decided to make this recipe to have as a snack w/ my wife and we had such a great time talking about what this recipe meant for both of us. For her it reminded her of her small town in Mexico when after church her family would sit in a park and have this esquites snack. She told me all about that fond memory.

Now as a family we will sure make these for our son once he can eat them and enjoy them as we continue with these beautiful food traditions and of course including McCormick Mayonesa (mayonnaise with lime!).

Esquites are best eaten hot, but you can eat them cold as well. They can also be dry (removing the broth). It all depends on what you like. Regardless of how you eat them, I am sure that you will love them just as much as I do.
