Cotija and Corn Tacos with Lime and Mango

As the weather warms up, it’s nice to have lighter meals that you can eat with your hands so that you can dine easily outside under the sun. What I’m saying is, it’s taco season!

The corn salad that fills these tacos makes a great side dish on its own as well. If you are averse to raw corn, you can always blanch the kernels in boiling water for one minute before proceeding with the recipe.

Active/Total Time: 25 min.  Makes: 12 Tacos


  • 2¾ cups fresh corn kernels (from 4 ears)
  • 3 ounces cotija or mild feta cheese, crumbled (⅔ cup)
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lime zest (from 3 to 4 limes)
  • 2½ tablespoons fresh lime juice (from 3 limes)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ¼ cup coarsely chopped cilantro leaves (from 1 bunch)
  • ¼ cup thinly sliced scallions (from 2 scallions)
  • Coarse salt
  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 2 ripe mangoes, peeled, halved, pit removed, and sliced into long, thin pieces
  • Lime wedges, for serving

Make it!

  1. Combine corn, cotija, lime zest, lime juice, oil, cayenne, cilantro, and scallions in a bowl. Season with salt.
  2. Toast tortillas individually over a gas burner, or spread in a single layer on a baking sheet and broil, turning once to char both sides. Fill with mango slices and corn salad. Serve with lime wedges for squeezing.

    At first I was hesitant to try this recipe (corn & mango?). But so happy I did. Tastes surprisingly good together! This is my second time making it. Amazing! Plus I just used corn from the can.
