Esquites: Mexican Street Corn Salad

May 15, 2023

Jump To Recipe

If you’re not familiar with this delicious dish, esquites is a popular Mexican snack commonly sold by street vendors. Consisting of freshly cooked corn kernels tossed with queso fresco or cotija cheese, mayo, lime, and chili powder, it’s a close cousin to elote but is served in a cup or dish rather than on the cob. 

Our take on this Mexican staple starts with creamy Primal Kitchen Mayo for a no-regrets snack that satisfies. Made with good fats from avocado oil and no sugar or dairy, this classic spread is the perfect savory base for salty cotija and fragrant herbs. Our version also incorporates green onion and a little fresh jalapeño that gives the dish an extra kick. Served warm, it’s the ultimate comfort food for picnics, BBQs, and Cinco de Mayo celebrations.
