Homemade Crispy Corn Snacks Recipe

Today I somewhat stumbled upon this yummy, healthy, homemade snack.  I was preparing a new recipe - black bean and corn tacos, which called for these crispy little corn treats.  I'll share the whole taco recipe later in the week, after I have tweaked it, but wanted to tell you about the corn.  It would make a yummy treat to snack on while ringing in the new year.
  • 2 Cups Frozen Corn, thawed (the larger the kernels the better)
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • Tajin Seasoning* (or cayenne pepper) - to taste
Press thawed corn between paper towels or in a clean dish towel to remove excess moisture.  Heat a skillet to medium high and spray with cooking spray.  Spread corn in single layer and sprinkle with seasonings.  Cook 5 to 10 minutes, stirring often, until browned and crispy.  Enjoy!

 *Tajin is a Mexican seasoning made of ground chile peppers, salt, dehydrated lime juice.  You can find it at your local bodega, or order it online at
