I recently became friends with a Mexican, and she told me about their food. Of course, we all know about their famous beef tacos and tamales. She introduced other dishes that I only heard of and tried for the first time. I was so amazed by the variety of recipes she prepared. It’s definitely a nice experience to be able to learn about others’ cultures through their food. One of my favorites is this Mexican street corn salad. I loved it so much that I looked for recipes online. Gladly, I found this video by CookingCarnival on Youtube. It tastes exactly like the one she made – it’s super easy and quick to make.
