If you follow along on instagram, you know we have a new obsession with this gas station restaurant by our house called Cilantro Mexican Grill. It is INSANE. They have a carne asada that will rock your world. But the real star of the show around there is their Chili Lime Creamed Corn. I’ve been stealing it off of Thomas’ burrito bowl since we started ordering from them back when I was pregnant. It’s addictive to say the least. So… I made it myself so I can have a constant supply when the mood strikes.

So we’ve all have the traditional creamed corn and we’re probably all obsessed. But add to that a dash of spice and a hint of lime and it’s next level. It’s great as a stand alone side dish that can be served along chicken or steak. OR it’s fantastic folded into a bowl, stuffed into a quesadilla, etc. It’s an excellent way to use all that incredible corn this time of the year…
