How To Make This Our Mexican Street Corn Chicken Tacos Recipe:
Be sure to have your chicken cooked and shredded to begin this recipe.
Once the chicken is prepared, heat your olive oil over medium heat in a skillet pan and then add the shredded chicken, cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper to the pan.
Stir it all together and continue cooking it until it is heated completely and the chicken is coated in the seasonings.
Remove the chicken from the skillet and cover it with aluminum foil to keep the chicken warm.
Now begin to make the street corn.
Carefully clean out the pan you used for the chicken or use another pan and heat the olive oil over medium heat.
Once the oil is hot, add in the bag of frozen corn and cook it until it begins to get that nice charred look.
Be sure to stir the corn occasionally, it will take about 7-8 minutes or so.
While the corn is cooking, combine the mayonnaise, cheese, lime juice, chopped jalapeno, cilantro, red onion, minced garlic, chili powder, salt, and pepper in a large mixing bowl and stir it until it is completely combined.
After the corn is done cooking, carefully fold the corn into the mayonnaise mixture.
Now it is time to build your delicious taco.
Start by laying out your tortilla, and then layer about ½ cup of corn, some of the Mexican street corn, some sliced avocados, cotija cheese, and freshly chopped cilantro.
Then simply, serve them and enjoy with your favorite sides.
