Quick and easy Nacho Grilled Corn on the Cob topped with nacho sauce, pico de gallo, and queso fresco or feta. The perfect side for celebrating the end of the school year or serving at bbq's and backyard parties.
I can't believe the school year is almost over. My future 7th and 5th graders will be spending the next 3 months at home... all day long! (LOL)
This busy momma's got mixed feelings about it all; however, we will be celebrating their achievement with a little party. Some time soaking in the pool along with friends, delicious barbecue, and of course, this great side: Nacho Grilled Corn on the Cob. Yes!!!!!!!!!
Nacho cheese sauce as a topping for grilled corn on the cob? Well, if this is your first time, please know that from now on this is gonna be one of your go-to sides. I am not kidding at all, because it's quite delish!
I got the inspiration from a classic: Mexican Street Corn (Elotes) -- which is corn on the cob either boiled or grilled, and served slathered in a chili-and lime mayo sauce with cheese.
Get the picture? 😉
One more thing: if you don't want to use your grill, heat your grill-pan! Easy peasy!
How to Make Nacho Grilled Corn on the Cob (IN A GRILL PAN)
Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat.
In a small bowl, combine the vegetable oil, salt, and ground pepper to taste.
When the pan is hot, brush the corn with the seasoned oil and then grill all sides until the corn is charred and tender (approximately 8-12 minutes).
Serve corn slathered or topped with warm Rico’s Gourmet Nacho Cheese Sauce, pico de gallo, and queso fresco. Alternatively, you can sprinkle on a bit of chili powder and lime juice.
It is a feast all by itself, but you can also serve as a side for barbecue. 😉
