Hearty Corn Recipes Perfect for Fall

Oct. 8, 2021

Corn is a symbol of fall as well as being a hearty and delicious addition for your fall dishes. These seasonal corn recipes from Mission will add some spice to your tiresome weekly meal planning.

Corn has many associations with fall. The corn season is coming to an end so it can be plentiful in the stores. Dried corn cobs are used to beautifully decorate our porches and tables. And many of us will wander through corn field mazes during the Halloween season. Rich in vitamin C and fiber, corn is an antioxidant protecting against disease. It is a filling and delicious addition for your fall dishes.

Kick off Fall with these delicious dips. Perfect companions for your chips on game day or as an after school snack. 

For the Roasted Poblano and Corn Guacamole Recipe roast corn and poblano peppers under the broiler until the corn is charred and the pepper skin blisters. Add to a freshly made guacamole of mashed avocados, cilantro, minced onion, and lime juice, then mix in diced tomatoes. This guac with a kick goes perfectly with our Organic Blue Corn Tortilla Chips
