  • 1 cup water
  • 6 corn cobs (can use anywhere from 2-12 cobs for this recipe)

Optional Mexican street corn seasoning

  • 1/3 cup light mayo
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup feta or cotija cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped cilantro
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • 1/4 tsp each salt & pepper


  • Add the 3/4 cup of water to the bottom of Instant Pot and then place trivet inside the inner pot. 
  • Add corn cobs, then place lid on Instant Pot and make sure valve is set to seal. Press the pressure cook button and set to high, then cook for 2 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, if using, mix together ingredients for Mexican street corn seasoning in a large bowl and set aside.
  • The Instant Pot will take about 5-10 minutes to come to pressure, then notify you it's done by beeping. Press the Cancel button then do a quick release of the pressure on the Instant Pot by flicking the switch at the top with a spoon. Open the lid when pressure gauge has dropped and the lid opens easily.
  • Carefully remove corn from Instant Pot and serve on a large platter, spooning Mexican street corn seasoning overtop if using. Serve and enjoy!
