Mexican Street Corn TacosThis is a delicious twist on tacos. I used Mexican street corn as my inspiration to fill these tortillas. It's creamy and zesty and really hits the spot when you don't have things like guacamole or sour cream on hand. It pairs very nicely with the meat, cheese, and salsa inside.


Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 12 tacos


  • 4 corn cob halves, cooked
  • 2 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp chili lime seasoning (or chili powder and fresh lime juice)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 12 small tortillas
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheese
  • 8 ounces any cooked meat like shredded beef or carnitas
  • shredded lettuce, chopped onion, salsa for topping


  1. Stand the corn cobs up and use a knife to slice off the whole kernels.
  2. cutting corn off the cob
  3. In a bowl, mix together the corn, mayonnaise, Parmesan, chili lime seasoning, and garlic powder.
  4. mixing corn, cheese, mayo & spices

  5. Stir well and set aside.
  6. mixing corn mixture
  7. Add some oil to a large pan over medium heat. Add a few tortillas at a time. Sprinkle with some cheese and top with meat.
  8. filling tortilla with corn mixture & meat
  9. Fold tortillas over and cook both sides until golden and crispy. This will help keep their taco shell shape. You can also flash-heat them and serve them soft style.

Does it matter if its flour or corn tortillas?

The classic street taco always uses corn tortillas but it shouldn't matter at all if you prefer flour tortillas.

My hub likes them with flour. I like them with corn. Both super delicious :)
