Mexican Street Corn Salad + Video

Mexican street corn salad is tangy and sweet with enough heat to make it interesting. Serve it with a weeknight meal or at your next cookout!

The traditional name for Mexican street corn salad is “esquites” and it’s typically served in a portable cup. While the flavor can be similar to “elotes,” the kernels are loose and mixed with other ingredients instead of being left on the cob.

If you’re looking for more south of the border favorites, try my Spicy Corn Skillet with Sausage or Restaurant-Style Mexican Rice.

Or, try this popular recipe that pairs crunchy, sweet kernels with tomatoes, mozzarella, herbs, and a simple dressing.

Smoked Chuck Roast

Smoked chuck roast is melt in your mouth delicious! Coat it in a simple dry rub and use your favorite wood pellets to infuse it with flavor.

As the weather gets warmer, it’s the perfect time to start making smoked beef roast. You can use it for several nights’ worth of dinners or impress your guests at a weekend get-together.

I like using my smoker for chuck roast because it gets the meat nice and tender. Since this is a tougher cut of meat, the longer cooking time allows the fat to fully render while still getting a nice crust on the outside.

Want to use a crockpot instead? I’ve got a great roundup of recipes that feature a variety of flavors and uses for whatever you are in the mood for!
