Street corn is sold from carts on the streets in Mexico. Usually sold on the cob and seasoned with lime juice or cheese, this version is a nice twist. The corn is combined with spinach and topped with a creamy cheese and lime juice topping.

  • 3 cups yellow or white corn (canned or frozen and defrosted)
  • 1 package (9 ounces) STOUFFER'S Creamed Spinach, defrosted*

  • 2 tablespoons NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Lowfat 2% Milk
  • Juice from half a lime, plus more for serving
  • Salt and lemon seasoning (such as Tajin)
