Mexican Street Corn Pasta Salad

A simple and tasty pasta salad with all of the flavours of Mexican street corn, aka elote.

 

ingredients
  • 1 pound pasta (gluten-free for gluten-free)
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 6 cups corn (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup lime juice (about 2 limes)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder (or cayenne) (or to taste)
  • 1/2 cup cotija (or feta), crumbled
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and finely diced
  • 1/4 cup green onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped

 

directions
  1. Cook the pasta as directed on the package, drain, mix with oil and let cool, mixing every 5 minutes. (The oil and mixing helps prevent it from sticking together while it cools.)
  2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat, add the corn, and let it sit cooking until charred, mix it up and let it char again, about 6-10 minutes.
  3. Mix the mayonnaise, sour cream, lime juice, salt, pepper and chili powder.
  4. Assemble the salad, toss and enjoy!
