Think Mexican street corn - but in a fun 'ribs' form! Paired with the most delicious dip. I’ve seen this recipe all over social media so I finally had to give it a try. Honestly it was super yummy but took some SERIOUS muscles to cut through the cobs of corn. In the end it was totally worth it! You could also just not slice the corn but that defeats the whole ‘ribs’ idea.

For those of you who have not gotten a life changing air fryer yet, don't fret! These can be made in the oven too. See 'tips' for more info.
