Chili Cilantro Corn




About: Hi! I am Klinong, that is how my loving family calls me, except my brother, he calls me Krinyol, as I have silly curly hair :) I love Instructables for forever now, especially for the contests ha-ha!, but ...

My 5 yo would call these grilled corn as TACO corn :) The seasoning on the spread do have similar taste to taco.

Step 1: Ingredients and Method

You can use fresh or freshly boiled corn, as many as you like.

You can use light sour cream or reduced fat sour cream.

You can use freshly chopped or dried cilantro (although fresh would make it even better!)

You can also add a drop or two of lime juice into the mixture and freshly ground black pepper (omit pepper if its for kids).

For 4 servings of corn, you will need at least:

4 corns

1/2 c sour cream

1/4 tsp cumin

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 c chopped cilantro

1 tsp cayenne/chili powder (omit if its for kids!)

Boil corn, drain, grill on medium heat, for 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally (you can grill fresh corn though, we boil them first because that is the way my kids would eat them haha).

Stir the other ingredients except cilantro (the measurements above are only approx. so adjust to your liking!)

Once corns are grilled, coat with sour cream and sprinkle with cilantro and cayenne powder.

Enjoy :)

    A taco is anything wrapped in a tortilla. Only the Taco Bell variation has a specific taste, but that's anything but authentic, so you can't really refer to something as having a "taco flavour."

    That being said, this sounds delicious.
