“This is a great summer recipe with sweet corn being in season, avocados at their peak, and readily available ingredients all-year round that make preparing this dish easy and affordable,” Scipione tells FOX News. With a lovely crunch from tortilla chips, fresh cilantro, and a bit of heat from chilies, these corn pops only taste like they took hours and a culinary school degree to prepare.

In lieu of tortilla chips, Scipione notes that crispy fried pork rinds or crushed and toasted pistachios also work well. “You can also try adding Chipotle peppers to the crema,” he says, adding that this dish pairs well with a black bean dip, pineapple, or a tomato salsa.
