Corn Tacos Recipe

Yield: Recipe makes about 10-12 tacos.


  •  3 Poblano chiles
  • 1 medium white onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 Tbsp Canola oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup whole milk ricotta
  • 1 cup corn kernels
  • 6-8 fresh squash blossoms, stems and stamens removed
  • 1-2 Tbsp chopped cilantro
  • Fresh corn tortillas
  • Salt


Roast the chiles over an open flame until blackened all over. Let cool, then peel, seed, and cut into 1/4“ strips.

Heat the oil in a saute pan over medium heat and add the onions. Cook until they begin to soften and then add the chile strips and garlic. After 3-4 minutes, add the corn and cook until just tender.

Tear the squash blossoms into 1” strips and toss with the corn mixture until they are just wilted. Season with salt. Heat tortillas on a griddle and spoon some the corn mixture in the center of each.

Place a dollop of ricotta on each taco and garnish with chopped cilantro. Tacos can also be garnished with a fresh salsa of your choice.
