Recipe Notes and Tips

If you want to make the most out of these delicious Mexican Street Corn Deviled Eggs then here are some recipe notes and tips to help.
- These eggs will be really popular, I guarantee it. So it may be worth making a bigger batch. For storing guidelines check out the FAQs in this post.
- Never made hard-boiled eggs before? All you need to do is place the eggs in a pan. Then cover with 2 inches of water. You then want the water to get to a boiling point but once this happens switch off the heat. Simply place a lid onto your pan and that’s it. Leave for 10 minutes. Once the eggs are cooked just add them to a bowl of iced water for a few minutes and then peel and slice the eggs ready to use
- Never grilled corn before? It is really simple to do. Just put your corn into a hot pan and allow it to blacken before turning it over and repeating on all sides. Once done remove from the pan and use a knife to cut off the corn. You can also do this under the grill, just brush the corn with a little oil and turn it over as each side blackens.
- You can also grill the corn on a gas stove over the burner. Turn the corn slowly as it blackens.
Variations to try
Like with a lot of recipes, once you have tried them out a few times you can look to make some changes and vary the recipe to suit your tastes and preferences. So I wanted to share with you some of them that you might want to try.
- If you don’t have any dijon mustard then you can use yellow mustard instead.
- Instead of red onion you can use yellow or green onions instead. This is a personal preference.
- We have used queso fresco in this dish but you can use whichever cheese you prefer or have in your refrigerator. Feta cheese or cojita cheese would work well.
- If you are not bothered about these eggs remaining vegetarian then why not add some cooked bacon bits to the cheese mixture? It will add incredible saltiness and flavor.
- Sprinkle over some spring onions to finish off these deviled eggs.
- Make it spicy by adding a drizzle of hot sauce across the top.
Like with any recipe, there are often questions that need answering. I thought I would share some of the common questions here, but if you have any comments or questions please don’t hesitate to contact me directly.
