Creamy Chili-Lime Corn

This irresistable side is inspired by Mexican esquites—the popular street food of roasted corn tossed with lime, chiles and cheese. For this lightened-up take, we swapped in yogurt in place of Mexican crema and used frozen corn, so you can enjoy it year round.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Whisk together the cilantro, yogurt, lime zest and juice, 1 teaspoon water and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Set aside.
  2. Pat the corn dry with paper towels and toss with the chili powder and garlic in a medium bowl. Melt the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Once the foam subsides, add the corn and cook undisturbed until it starts to brown slightly in some spots, about 2 minutes. Continue to cook, stirring, until warmed through, about 3 minutes.
  3. Remove the skillet from the heat and stir in the lime-yogurt mixture, 3 tablespoons of the Parmesan and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Transfer to a serving dish and top with cilantro, the remaining 1 tablespoon Parmesan and a sprinkle of chili powder.
