In Ontario, where agriculture thrives, the local corn harvest presents a perfect opportunity to infuse Mexican-inspired flavours into traditional dishes. Join us on a culinary journey as we explore the rich tapestry of Ontario corn and discover how it can be transformed with a Mexican twist.
The Bounty of Ontario Corn
Ontario’s fertile soil and favourable climate provide an ideal environment for corn cultivation. As summer arrives, farmers across the region eagerly harvest their golden crops, offering a bounty of fresh and sweet corn – both the yellow varieties and the lesser known heirloom varieties.
Mexican-Inspired Corn Recipes
Let us do the cooking and enjoy our limited time offer of the flavours of traditional Mexican Street Corn, with a side of warm corn, cheese, cilantro, lime, and a hint of chile. Choose from Smoky Paprika Mayo, Spicy Chipotle Mayo or Fresh Cilantro-Lime Sour Cream.
Ontario Corn and Black Bean Salsa
Combine grilled corn kernels, black beans, diced tomatoes, red onion, jalapeños, cilantro, lime juice, and a pinch of cumin. This zesty salsa can be enjoyed with tortilla chips, as a topping for tacos, or as a refreshing side dish.
Ontario corn, with its sweet kernels and abundant harvest, provides a canvas for culinary creativity. By infusing Mexican-inspired flavours into this local treasure, we embark on a delicious journey that marries global traditions with the bounty of our region. From Elotes to salsas and quesadillas, Ontario corn shines brightly as it embraces the vibrant flavours of Mexico.
