Cuisine: Mexican
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes


  • 3 ears corn on the cob
  • olive oil
  • 1 onion, sliced thin
  • 3 roasted poblano peppers, chopped (here's how to roast poblano peppers)
  • 3 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream (optional) 
  • tortilla chips, for serving

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Heat a cast iron skillet to high. Cook the corn until charred on all sides, about 10 minutes. Allow to cool slightly and cut the kernels off the cob. Set aside. 
  2. Heat the olive oil in the skillet. Cook the onions until soft, about 5 minutes. 
  3. Add the roasted poblanos and corn (you can save a little for garnish, if you'd like). Season with salt and pepper. 
  4. Add the cheese and heavy cream. Cook on low heat until cheese has melted. Garnish with fresh cilantro, chopped poblanos and corn, if desired. Serve warm with tortilla chips.
