Cotija & Corn Tacos with Mango & Lime

This Martha Stewart Living recipe is fast, vegetarian, and no cook. What could be better during the long, hot summer?! These were totally refreshing and even my meat-loving husband has enjoyed these twice since the thermostat started rising without complaining once.


Recipe Notes
If you can't find cotija cheese, which is a mild Mexican cheese, you can substitute good-quality feta.


  • Fresh corn kernels (from 4 ears of corn)
  • 3 oz. cotija or mild feta cheese, crumbled (about 2/3 cup)
  • 2 tsp. finely-grated lime zest
  • 2-1/2 tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 c. chopped cilantro leaves
  • 1/4 c. thinly-sliced scallions (green onions)
  • Coarse salt
  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 2 ripe mangos, peeled and sliced into long, thin strips
  • Lime wedges for serving

1. Combine corn, cheese, lime zest, lime juice, olive oil, cayenne pepper, cilantro, and scallion in a bowl. Mix well to combine.

2.  Warm tortillas over a gas burner until slightly blistered and charred.  Fill with mango slices and corn filling and garnish with limes.
