Domesticated Diva Post Cinco De Mayo Grub- Mexican Style Street Corn and Cilantro Avocado Chimichurri Sauce

What a month!  Can you believe May has almost come and gone!?  I am a little late posting this, but I wanted to share my recipe from Cinco De Mayo.  Me and Mr. Domesticated feasted on Mexican Style Street Corn, Cilantro Avocado Chimichurri Sauce, and Short Rib Steak Fajitas.  Yes, it was amazing!

Now that's a Cinco De Mayo feast!

The start of something special...the Cilantro Avocado Chimichurri Sauce

Cilantro Avocado Chimichurri Sauce (makes a little over 1 cup)
-3 Small Avocados
-1/2 Bushel of Cilantro
-1/2 Bushel of Parsley
-1 Jalapeno (seeds removed)
-1/2 of a White Onion
-Juice of One Lime
-3 Tbsp. of White Balsamic Vinegar
-1/4 Cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
-3 Cloves of Garlic
-Salt and Pepper to taste

The Green Goodness...

All you have to do is put all the ingredients in a blender/food processor (except for the olive oil), and blend it up until it is thoroughly chopped up.  Then slowly add the olive oil until the consistency is smooth.

Served in my cute "New Mexican" inspired condiment dish =)

Now, on to the amazing Mexican Style Street Corn!  Oh yeah!  I decided to do a corn side dish, because it's delicious grilled and it was on sale six for a dollar at the grocery store.  Who can pass that bargain up!?

Mexican Style Street Corn (Makes 6 Servings)
-6 Fresh Ears of Corn (husk removed)
-3 Heaping Tablespoons of Margarine/Light Butter
-3 Heaping Tablespoons of Light Mayo
-4 Tablespoons of Parmesan Cheese (please don't use the cheap Kraft stuff lol)
-Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder and Cayenne Pepper to taste

Grill your corn.  It takes about 8-10 minutes to get your corn slightly charred.

Heat up the margarine/light butter in the microwave until melted.  Mix in the mayo, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.  I used a whisk to make the mixing easier.

Once the corn is finished on the grill lather the butter/mayo mixture onto each of the corn.  Then finish the corn by sprinkling on the parmesan cheese and a couple dashes of cayenne pepper for color and a little heat.

Mr. Domesticated Divas Short Rib Steak Fajita...yum-o!
