Mexican Street Style Corn, Shrimp Skewers

Sometimes you pass a 6 pack in the supermarket and…Tecate Tuesday is born!
Did you know that 6 packs were created because they were the perfect weight for housewives to carry home? A bag of groceries in one hand and a 6 pack in the other.


To be honest, I couldn’t decide on flavor profile as I started craving both Bang Bang Shrimp and Street Corn while in the supermarket. There are no rules in my kitchen, so I just went for it along with a side of cherry tomatoes and rice. I’d make both again, but I’d probably do the bang bang shrimp with a lemon risotto and the street corn with zesty lime and avocado shrimp tacos. (That would probably make a lot more sense!)
