The famous corn on the cob; we’ll buy them for a BBQ first and foremost. Roasted over the coals until the kernel’s start popping, served with lashings of butter. Now, don’t get me wrong, i love them served this way, but it had me thinking when Ange bought some for me to use. Time for something different?

First night we tried this Mexican corn on the cob, a wonderful looking and sounding side dish. Smoked paprika is mixed with some mayonnaise, a fiery spice mix to sprinkle over the cooked corn, grated Parmesan and a squeeze of lime. Now, what would go with this? I’m a bit hot on chicken schnitzels at the moment and i figured they would go nicely with the mayonnaise.
It was a sensational combination, something completely different for that mid week meal. Pretty simple too. You could buy your schnitzel if you didn’t want to make one, but from experience a made one? Can’t beat it.
The next night was tuna and corn quesadillas. Another simple yet different meal. Instead of tinned corn i just microwaved our two remaining cobs for 4 minutes and stripped off the kernels.
You’ve seen me post up quesadillas many times in the past, (on Instagram, Facebook, @mejulesok), a great way to use up any left overs but also giving you a simple, easy dinner and here is no exception.
Firstly make your mixture for the filling.
Place your tortilla in the pan and top with the mixtures and shredded cheese. Place remaining tortilla on top and cook until golden, oozing and crisp.
Served here simple chips and salad.
Close up! 😉
