Loaded Mexican Esquites inspired whipped feta dip topped with crumbled bacon, grilled corn, mashed avocado, fresh cilantro, smoked paprika and chipotle aioli served with tortilla chips. The perfect starter to serve up for Cinco de Mayo.
Everyone will love this one! Salty whipped feta turns into a creamy dip that’s super fast and simple to assemble. Inspired by Mexican street corn, but deconstructed. Feta resembles closely the taste and texture of Mexican cheese typically used for street corn, Cotija. However it is not commonly available and typically found in specialty food markets. That’s why we opted for feta here. We wanted to provide something that was much more approachable and familiar to our audience.
All week, we’ve rolled out all kinds of Mexican inspired recipes for Cinco de Mayo. Really we just love the food so much it’s a great excuse to eat loads of flavourful, spicy food. Check out what else we’ve got going on! Classic Margaritas, Hot Cheetos Elotes, Carne Asada Tacos, Nachos.
Once you’ve whipped up the feta in a food processor or high powered blender, spread it into a shallow bowl. We recommend loading on the toppings. Because the feta is salty, you really want to make sure that each chip will get a little bit of everything on it. So extra corn, extra avocado, extra bacon and a good drizzle of chipotle aioli.
