MEXICAN STREET CORN DIP
BY SANDIA CHANG
Bubbledogs co-founder Sandia Chang turns a popular Mexican street dish into a delicious dip that’s perfect for parties and pairs beautifully with pilsner. Smothered in spices, cheese and mayonnaise, street corn is corn on the cob’s cooler – and tastier – cousin. Sandia takes the fresh and tangy ingredients from this traditional street cart dish and creates a light and luscious dip. Make your own chips by fast frying triangles of flour tortilla and pile them up to serve with the dip, or load chips individually and present on a platter for more of a show. A chilled pilsner or pale ale makes a perfect partner. Inspired to learn more about brilliant beer and food pairings? You’ll love the new Sharp’s cookbook, Just Add Beer.

  • INGREDIENTS
  • RECIPE

340g fresh corn kernels cut off the cob, or draineD canned corn

450g cheddar cheese, grated

160g pickled jalapeños, chopped

225g green onions, chopped

½ tsp ground cumin

½ tsp black pepper

177ml mayonnaise

227g sour cream

25g coriander, chopped

20g lime juice

Salt to taste

Flour tortillas, cut in to small triangles

1. In a skillet, heat the vegetable oil and sauté the corn kernels until slightly coloured. Put on a tray to cool completely.

2. In a large bowl, combine the sour cream, mayonnaise, cumin
and black pepper.

3. Add the corn, cheese, jalapeños, lime juice, coriander and
green onions to the sour cream mixture.

4. Season with salt to taste.

5. Stir until well combined and chill for at least 2 hours, or
overnight for optimum flavour.

6. In a large pan, heat oil to 180C for deep frying. Drop in a few
tortillas to fry, whilst stirring gently for even cooking.

7. Once the tortillas are golden, remove onto a paper towel to
drain. Be aware that they cook very fast and they will crisp up
when cooled.

8. Serve a dollop of the corn mixture on each chip to make
canapés, or serve up alongside a bowl of dip for sharing.
