After one sweet, creamy bite of our zesty corn dish, we bet you'll be a raving fan of this comfort classic. Based on "esquites," a popular snack/side dish made by the street vendors in Mexico City, you won't have to buy a plane ticket to get this version. We combine sweet corn with roasted red peppers and zucchini, and a mixture of creamy cheese, lime, chili and cilantro, finishing it off with a touch of crème fraîche. Pair with FreshDirect Rotisserie Chicken and Achiote Rice for a mouthwatering Mexican-style meal in minutes.

About our Heat Index: We've developed this Heat Index to give you an approximation of how spicy a particular dish tastes. Keep in mind that people tolerate chili heat in very different ways, so this scale may not reflect your individual experience with a dish.* NO HEAT There's no heat here — safe for the kids. MINOR HEAT Expect no more than a little tingle on the tongue. SUBTLE HEAT One might describe this dish as "peppery." MEDIUM HEAT A spicy warmth that builds as you eat and lingers a while. STRONG HEAT This dish has kick — keep a cool beverage on hand. FIERY HEAT Your eyes will water. Your nose will run. You've been warned.
*Note for sensitive palates: Heat ratings are never guaranteed! Due to unpredictable environmental variations that range from rainfall to chance genetic changeability, chili spice often differs. Even two identical-looking jalapeños can pack two very different heat levels.
