This is a Mexican-style dish which can be used as a side, to fill tacos or burritos, mixed into salad and even served cold. This is my version, I hope you enjoy it!


Serves: 4 

  • 4 slices bacon
  • 4 ears fresh corn, kernels cut from the cob
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 small red capsicum, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 cup (65ml) beer
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh coriander

Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:1hour10min 

  1. Place the bacon in a large, deep frypan and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. When cool, chop the bacon.
  2. Place the kernels of corn into a large frypan over high heat and sprinkle the cumin, sea salt, and cayenne pepper over the corn. Turn the corn gently over with a spatula as it cooks then stir in the onion, red capsicum and garlic. Stir the corn mixture every few minutes, until it begins to stick in the pan.
  3. Pour the beer into the pan to help unstick the corn, stir and cook until the corn is dark with very dark spots and the onion and red capsicum are soft, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and sprinkle with chopped bacon, feta and coriander.
