Copycat Torchy’s Street Corn

Delicious Mexican Street Corn - a copycat version from Torchy's Tacos that is irresistible and filled with butter, cheese, chili powder and cilantro.

Have you been to Torchy’s Tacos before? Unfortunately, they are only located in Texas, Colorado and Oklahoma so if you haven’t been to any of these places in the last few years, chances are you haven’t been there. It’s a very sad thing because the place has some of the best tacos and sides I’ve ever tried. We were first introduced to this chain while we lived in Houston. It instantly became a favorite, and we used any excuse we could to go there. It was also one of the places we always took visitors because it was so tasty and had great prices.

Torchy’s is best known for its tacos, which we absolutely love. Having said that, the two other menu favorites for us is the Mexican street corn and the queso. I still need to come up with a copycat recipe for the queso, but today I’m sharing a copycat recipe for the street corn. I’m not quite certain if I have it down exactly, but I admit it’s pretty close and so delicious. In fact, my husband has requested this recipe several times since I made it last month. He said he’d be happy eating it alone for dinner, which shows me just how much he loved it.
