Walking through a small, Mexican market on a recent Saturday afternoon, I happened to come across a slightly odd can of “Mexicorn” from Green Giant. I immediately thought two things:
Therefore I must like Mexicorn! Just look, Whole Kernel Corn, Red & Green Bell Peppers, Vacuum Packed! Well as you could imagine, this was just some canned corn with a really low proportion of diced peppers thrown in…
Obviously, I was unsatisfied with my $1.99 purchase. But rather than seek out some kind of lawsuit for false-advertising that I’d probably lose, I went ahead and spiced things up with my own “Mexicorn” Recipe (Modified from talks with friend, photographer and fellow chef – Eric Hazard):
Preparation is easy enough. After chopping all of your ingredients, mix them in a bowl and add the lime juice. You have yourself a simple but flavorful salsa, but better yet, you can roast/blacken the corn in a frying pan with 1 Tblsp. of butter and serve as a topping like I’ve done in my recipe for Adobo-Lime Chicken Fajitas!
