I only first heard of Esquites, or Mexican Corn Salad, in March when Kurt and I were down in Texas. We ordered it to “share” at the recommendation of the bartender, and like all delicious food we decide to split, I immediately ate almost all of it. I felt very happy because it was so delicious, but also sad because I didn’t think I’d ever get to eat it again. It never occurred to me that I could make it myself, until this week.
Because I literally made no modifications to the recipe, I’ll just give you the link to avoid any plagiarism accusations.
The above serves 4 and has about 275 calories per serving if you use low fat mayonnaise.
Ok, maybe this isn’t the healthiest meal around, but it certainly isn’t the worst. And it tastes so good! To make sure you’re still getting all your other nutrients, I’d suggest pairing it with a big salad and a bit of protein.
