What You'll Need:
(Serves 6)

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 large garlic clove, finely minced
  • 1 corn on the cob, kernels only
  • 1 large jalapeno, finely chopped (fresh or canned)
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 large lime, juiced
  • 1/2 cup beer (any variety)
  • 8 oz pepper jack cheese, grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • cilantro leaves, optional (as a garnish)


Step 1: Melt the butter in a small sauce pan. Add the minced garlic and cook for 1 minute, or until fragrant. Add the corn kernels, jalapeño, and oregano. Sauté for about 3 minutes and keep stirring.


Step 2: Pour in the lime juice and beer and reduce to a simmer. Cook down until the liquid is almost completely gone, about 5 minutes.


Step 3: One handful at a time, add the grated cheese until completely melted. Season with salt and pepper and mix well. Transfer to bowl and garnish with cilantro leaves. Serve with tortilla chips.
