Alexia Mexican-Style Street Corn Review

Eating street food is a little bit awkward, but it’s usually tasty enough to make it worth the trouble. Of course, when the weather is cold, our team doesn’t necessarily want to wander the streets looking for food trucks. Instead, we’d prefer to stay in our office and go through the freezer, where we can find treats like the Alexia Mexican-Style Street Corn.

We opted to microwave this corn, which was a pretty simple process. The plastic cover was a little tricky to remove, but the corn itself was toasty warm in about five minutes. After that, we just let our corn cool for a little bit before we dug in! (This can also be cooked in the oven, but it’ll take you 30 minutes longer. You can see the full cooking instructions by checking out the package scans at the bottom of this frozen food review.)

Alexia Mexican-Style Street Corn

We’re not exactly authorities on Mexican street corn here in frozen Minnesota, but we know enough to be suspicious about the authenticity of this dish. It’s made with Parmesan cheese rather than cotija, and the seasoning is pretty mild. There’s some paprika here, as you can see in the image above, but it’s not enough to give the dish a kick. The ingredients list says that this is made with guajillo chile pepper, but we couldn’t really taste it.

Of course, the corn itself is the main attraction of this dish, and it’s … alright. It’s a step up from corn that comes from a can, but it can’t really compare to corn fresh off the cob. The corn might be a little less squishy if you cook this dish in the oven rather than the microwave, but we suspect it wouldn’t make a huge difference.

Alexia says there are 2.5 servings here, and that seems about right to us. They also suggest serving the corn alongside tacos, which seems like a smart idea. This corn would certainly be a lot tastier if it were topped with salsa!

The Alexia Mexican-Style Street Corn is a mild dish that probably won’t satisfy your cravings for Mexican food. It doesn’t taste bad, and it’s certainly salvageable. This would be a lot better with salsa, extra seasoning, or some diced jalapenos. Still, we’re not sure this is worth that extra effort. You might be better off making your own street-style corn from scratch.
