I don’t know if I’ve ever been more than excited almost a plate of fries. Actually, that’second a lie. Fries are my terminate-all, live-all, favorite guilty pleasance (which isn’t even guilty, because they brand me happy every bit heck too they’re a Irish potato, then, inward my eyes, they’re actually non that bad), too and so I took them to some other degree of honey because they’re Mexican-ish. And I beloved Mexican food more than than anything.


So basically a mashup of two of my favorite things inwards life! How could nosotros become incorrect hither?

And it all starts amongst the fries. Can yous believe they’re BAKED?! How crispy do they expect?!


The hole-and-corner is: piece them on the thinner side, too make them inward a super hot oven (like 450℉), alongside a fiddling scrap of crude oil, don’t touch them until the concluding 5-ten minutes and so they become that crispy exterior, together with that’second it. They turn out perfectly every fourth dimension, without neglect.

And since nosotros’re loading these babies amongst lots of cheese, sour cream/mayo mixture, and tons of corn, I figured baking them might live the meliorate road?


Plus, I ofttimes don’t experience like dealing amongst a huge pot of rock oil. Sometimes it is worth it though. Like for these.

I likewise accept a distich other street corn recipes on my site because I dearest it and then much. I made this street corn salmon a span summers ago (MAJOR FAVORITE), too these street corn loaded hot dogs final summertime.


Yes, I’one thousand serious.

If y'all aren’t familiar alongside the amazingness that is street corn – I guess I should’ve explained that before. In its pure course, it’sec grilled corn on the cob, topped with Mexican crema (commonly a mixture of sour cream too/or mayo), chili pulverisation, garlic, cilantro, lime, as well as cotija cheese. It’s such a magical combination of ingredients as well as I tin’t become over how fantastic it is. I crave it constantly.


This is basically my deconstructed version together with it’sec so insanely tardily. And yous tin function the leftover street corn for side dishes during the week or to place on salads! If there’sec any left, that is!

So I figured that another street corn recipe HAD to live done for my calendar week of Cinco de Mayo recipes. I don’t similar to play favorites, (fifty-fifty though I annoyingly tell everything is my favorite), you lot must make these fries. And they mightiness merely live my favorite recipe from the calendar week!


Such a tough phone call though.

We really could non end eating these. We significant my mom as well as I on a random morn at like 10am when I was shooting these.


The fundamental here is to layer the Mexican street corn mixture too crema in layers, so you aren’t left with plain fries at the bottom. Because nobody likes cheese-less as well as creama-less fries. 🙂
