Mexican Street Corn (Elote)

Mexican Street Corn (Elote)


Mexican Street Corn (Elote)

  • 6 to 8 medium ears sweet corn, husks removed
  • 1/2 cup Mexican crema, or sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup minced cilantro
  • Chile Powder
  • 1/2 cup cotija cheese, crumbled
  • Lime wedges, to serve

For the sauce, mix the mayo and sour cream, lightly season with salt and pepper and a couple squeezes of lime. Set aside

Grill the corn. You want a good char on all sides of the corn. On my grill this takes about 4 minutes per quarter, so about 16 minutes total.

When the corn is done, lay them on a platter. Slather on the mayo sauce. Top with the cilantro, cotija cheese and chile powder to taste. Consume before or after your tamale😊

If you like it spicy, you can drizzle your favorite hot sauce on it.

My favorite tamale paring with the Elote is the Green Chile Pork and Cheese or the Red Chile Pork. A perfect summer treat.
