Watermelon Margarita + Mexican Street Corn

I'm guest posting over at Perpetually Daydreaming today about these fabulous watermelon margaritas... so much yumminess - go check them out!

And to keep in theme with the south-of-the-border drink, I am sharing the most tasty (and unapologetically unhealthy) corn recipe ever.  

John and I recently ate at a great restaurant called Taco Haus.  We are both huge fish taco fans, and theirs are amazing!  In addition to their tacos, they have awesome street corn.  After dinner, I went straight to Pinterest to find a copy-cat recipe... and the one I found is equally good!

What you need:
- 5 ears of corn
- 1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
- 2 tbs fresh cilantro, chopped
- 1 clove garlic, pressed
- 2 tbs cotija cheese, crumbled
- 2 tbs unsalted butter
- 3 tbs mayonnaise
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1 lime, juiced

How to:
1.  Melt the butter in a large skillet, and add the uncooked corn kernels and diced jalapeno; cook for 8-10 minutes.
2.  Stir in the rest of the ingredients.

A perfect side to complement a piece of healthy grilled chicken!
