I could seriously just eat a bowl of this stuff straight.  It is seriously so good and captures the same flavors of a classic Elote, or Mexican Street Corn itself.  The Mexican Street Corn Hummus is great served up with chips for dipping, or traditional dippers like pita bread and veggies.  (Bell peppers = win!).

And if you can get ahold of fresh corn when you make this….holy YUM!  It takes it to a whole new level of deliciousness.

Mexican Street Corn Hummus

Fast, simple, and easy to make. Perfect as an appetizer or snack.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
Servings: 1 cups

Ingredients

Hummus

Salsa

Instructions

  • In a food processor, combine the beans, 1/2 cup corn kernels (set aside the rest), lime juice, garlic, olive oil, chili powder, and salt. Blend until you reach your desired consistency. Add a little water at a time to thin it out if needed.
  • Season to taste with additional salt, lime, and chili powder.
  • Mix in the 1/4 reserved corn kernels, 2 Tbsp cotija cheese, and 1 Tbsp fresh cilantro. This will give you some chunks of these ingredients throughout the hummus.
  • Make the salsa by combining all of the salsa ingredients in a small bowl. Season to taste with salt, lime, and chili powder.
  • Spoon the salsa mixture on top of the hummus. Chill until ready to serve.

Notes

I prefer to serve the hummus cold by refrigerating for at least 30 minutes.
Learn how to make roasted garlic here!  You will want it in your refrigerator at all times 🙂  You can also use raw garlic which will give it more of a slight spice.

  1. I would love to make this, however in the recipe in the very first line it says to “combine the beans”, yet there are no beans mentioned in the ingredients. What kind of beans and amounts would be required? Thanks!

    • Hi Colleen,
      I’m so sorry, no idea how I did not catch that! I have fixed it. I used Great Northern white beans but you could also use garbanzo beans. And you would want to drain them regardless of what type you use.

    • Hi Tina,
      I use frozen corn (defrosted in the microwave first). Fresh would be ideal! I would think canned would work as well, but canned corn has a slightly different flavor to it.
