There’s always something new and delicious over on Aldi shelves week after week, and at jaw-droppingly low prices. Between their $2 lunch finds and their $5 frozen dinners, Aldi is certainly a place to go when you want to stock up on tasty food that fits within your budget. Now with summer in full swing, the store is adding new foods to shelves for your outdoor barbecues and summer cookouts, and we have a feeling you’re going to love the most recent affordable side dish item: canned Mexican-style sweet corn.

These cans of corn are sold in two flavors: Chipotle Corn made with sweet corn, red bell peppers, and chipotle peppers, and Mexican-Style corn with whole-kernel corn mixed with red and green bell peppers. These cans have 11 ounces of corn each, and are sold at only $1.29, making them an easy and tasty side dish when you need something in a pinch.

While this corn would be delicious on its own, you can also use it in a variety of recipes that you’re cooking up this summer. This corn would make for a unique twist inside a homemade Mexican cornbread, or topped on your fish tacos. If you plan on stocking up on these cans, you can save them for other delicious recipes later in the year, like Jiffy corn casserole, corn soup, or creamed corn skillet.

Shoppers are excited about these new flavors, as well as their bag of Mexican-Style Street Corn Big Dipper Corn Chips. Make a batch of avocado corn salad for dipping, or as a tasty appetizer or a side dish with your grilled steak tacos. With so many possibilities, and at such a cheap price, we have a feeling you’re going to want to snag a few cans for your pantry to last you all summer long.
