Spicy Lime and Cilantro Corn

I hope everyone had a safe and yummy Thanksgiving! I sure did and probably will for the next week with all the leftovers we have 🙂 I was thinking of posting a recipe with the left overs, but I figured with all the good-looking posts I’ve seen around, anything I post wouldn’t compare! Instead, I want to veer away from Thanksgiving food (very hard for me to do, by the way) and post something a little less holiday-ish and with more of a kick. I’m talking some good old Mexican food. With the spice and water you’ll be chugging down, it’s the perfect way to start your metabolism right back up. Warning: this is not for the faint hearted. Add the jalapeños with extreme caution!

Lime and Cilantro Corn 


3 and 1/2 cups of frozen corn

1/3 cup plain yogurt

3 tbsp jalapeño peppers

2 tbsp lime juice

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 tbsp cilantro

1 tsp chili powder

1 tsp red pepper flakes

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 onion, minced

1/2 cup of your favorite cheese, grated

salt and pepper to taste


Cook the corn according to instructions. Place in a bowl and add in the rest of the ingredients.
