Spicy Tequila Street Corn

Make It Yourself

Spirit Ingredients:

1/4 cup
2 tbsp

Food Ingredients and Preparation

Serves 8-10

Cook Time: 10 minutes


3 ears of corn, husked

1 cup full fat sour cream

1 cup cotija cheese, crumbled

1/4 cup tequila

2 TBS tequila

1 jalapeno

½ lime juiced

¼ cup cilantro, chopped, have extra for garnish

1 tsp chili powder

1 tsp coriander

1 tsp cayenne pepper (or ground chipotle pepper)

Salt to taste (smoked is even better)


In a small bowl, add the whole jalapeno plus 2 TBS tequila. Freeze. Meanwhile, fire up the grill to medium heat. Add corn and grill, covered, for 3 minutes, undisturbed. Flip corn and repeat. While corn grills, combine the sour cream, tequila, cilantro, chili powder, coriander, cayenne pepper and a pinch of salt in a bowl. When the corn comes off the grill, carefully cut into 3-4 slices about 1 1/2 – 2” thick. Next, slather each slice with sour cream mixture and sprinkle with cojita, cilantro and a dash of salt. Finally, zest frozen tequila jalapeno directly over the top. That oughta spice up your summer BBQ.
