For corn lovers, this side dish is always a hit. It’s grilled corn on the cob inspired by the popular snack sold by street vendors all over Mexico called ‘elote.’
Slathered in a sauce of Mexican Crema mixed with mayonnaise and served with Cotija cheese, chili powder, and lime, it’s the perfect snack or side dish for any summer BBQ.
Usually, white corn is used in Mexico; however, yellow corn works really well for this recipe too and the slight char from the grilling brings out the corn’s nutty flavor. The combination of all the different parts makes it a sweet, salty, nutty, tart little savory treat!
If you have trouble finding Mexican Crema, you can replace it with sour cream as well as feta cheese or queso fresco if you can’t find cotija cheese. Consider adding chopped cilantro, sliced scallions, or bacon bits if you’re feeling adventurous. Truly, a forgiving recipe that allows substitutions and the use of your imagination. Enjoy!
