Knorr Selects Bouillon
Have you tried Caldo Knorr® Selects con sabor de Vegetales (Knorr Selects Bouillon) yet? They’re delicious!
My favorite is their vegetable one. It adds great flavor to my meals, is made with natural stock, and has no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. And is has no added MSG. The best part is that the bouillons come in different varieties!
You may remember that I posted a recipe for Creamy Verde Fiesta Enchiladas using this bouillon a few months ago. If you don’t remember it, hop back over and grab the recipe now, because it’s SO good!!

Mexican Street Corn
It’s easy to make the Mexican street corn for this main dish salad bowl recipe.
Mexican street corn salad is also called esquites. Esquites can be made year-round, inside the house without a grill, using frozen corn. Super easy!
It’s a perfect appetizer; serve it with chips like salsa. Or serve it as a side dish for any outdoor party or gathering.
Mexican street corn salad is also great in tacos or burritos. It’s fun on nachos. Try a Mexican Street Corn Pizza. Or, of course, make my Shrimp and Mexican Street Corn Bowl!
While the corn is cooking in the skillet, make the mayo-sour cream dressing. The ingredients for the dressing are mayonnaise, sour cream, Cotija cheese, lime juice, fresh cilantro, Knorr Selects Vegetable Bouillon, red onion, and spices.
In case you aren’t familiar with it, Cotija cheese is the traditional Mexican cheese that’s used in Mexican Street Corn salad. It’s a salty cow’s milk cheese. And, you can find it at well stocked markets, Cardenas Market, El Super, Northgate or Super King Markets.
If you can’t find Cotija cheese, queso fresco or feta cheese makes a good substitute.
Spiced Sautéed Shrimp
The sautéed shrimp for this Mexican bowl are super easy to make and so delicious! And, aren’t those little flecks of herbs and spices pretty? Those come from the Knorr Selects Bouillon.
Simply defrost frozen, peeled & deveined shrimp and remove the shell from the tail. I like to buy the extra jumbo shrimp 16/20 count per pound. They’re nice big shrimp.
To defrost the shrimp, simply place them in a medium bowl and cover with cool tap water. Change the water out for fresh tap water a couple of times, and in about 5 minutes, you have defrosted shrimp. At this point, the tail shell is easily removable, which makes the bowl easier to eat.
Pat the shrimp dry with a paper towel and add them to a skillet with the Bouillon.
Pop them on the hot skillet and sear to perfection.
Want to add additional toppings to your Mexican Bowl?
I’d recommend salsa, guacamole, more chopped red onion, or any fresh veggies.
Serve some chips on the side too. And don’t forget the lime wedges!
You can take advantage of the savings and selection on Knorr Selects Bouillon Cubes for your own 30-minute meals like I did, and pick up the Knorr Selects Bouillon Cubes at Cardenas El Super, Northgate or Super King Markets.
