Cheesy Mexican Corn Recipe: Great Side for Lunch or Dinner

I love Mexican corn, but it tends to be a bit messy. Not that there's anything wrong with messy. Sometimes, though, I want something simple and easy. Instead of making Mexican corn on the cob, I cut off the kernels to make this Cheesy Mexican Corn side. You can serve it as a side, a dish on its own or even as a dip.

Make it while the corn is still sweet.

Ah, the taste of Tex-Mex Dallas! I miss that corn. Stir in some mayo for creaminess :)
