pop!YUM

When I pick-up the pop!TOT from school and come home I need quick and easy meals I can make in less than 30 minutes that we can both enjoy. We both LOVE mexican so I figured let’s make Fajitas! Classic fajitas are typically made with grilled strips of skirt steak, onions and bell peppers served on a sizzling hot plate with fresh tortillas and guacamole, but I didn’t have time for all of that. (Insert soundclip “Ain’t nobody got time for that” lol)  You can easily make fajitas with packaged steak or chicken which cuts down the time significantly. Plus if you make everything in one pan there is also less of a mess. My kinda dinner. Here’s my quick and easy recipe for Angus steak fajitas and Mexican Corn.

Mexican Corn on the Cob

pop!INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cobs of corn
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 4 lime wedges
  • 1/2 cup of cotija cheese, crumbled
  • Cayenne to taste

pop!DIRECTIONS

  1. Bake the corn (in husk) in a preheated 350°F oven for 25 minutes.
  2. Let the corn cool until you can handle it and  pull husk layers down, leaving them attached to the base of the cob, which can act as a handle.
  3. If desired, to blacken, put in the broiler for a few minutes. Be sure to cover the husk in aluminum foil so that it doesn’t accidentally get burned in the flames.
  4. Remove from the broiler once desired color is achieved and spread the butter on the corn
  5. Sprinkle on the cheese and season with cayenne pepper to taste
  6. Squeeze lime juice over the corn
