While grilled corn is delicious with just some butter and sea salt, try this Mexican version, called elote, grilled corn that is smothered in crema Mexicana or mayonnaise, cotija cheese, chili powder seasoning, and freshly-squeezed lime. This is a popular snack sold by street vendors in Mexico. Some ingredients are Mexican staples but are widely available in grocery stores and Hispanic markets here in the US.
Fresh, sweet corn on the cob has always been one of my favorite summertime treats. Then, a few years ago, I discovered elote at the Orange County Fair. Now, I can’t wait for the fair and when I go, I head straight to the same vendor for perfect char-grilled corn on the cob, husk still attached.
But I really don’t have to wait for the fair to enjoy elote; I can easily make it at home. Follow me to A Lucky Life blog for the rest of the article and the recipe and see how easy it is to make this Mexican-style grilled corn for yourself.

Every summer party we had growing up consisted of exactly this! Love your photo, it really took me back to some great memories…just like my tias used to make.
Mari, it’s my favorite way to eat corn. It’s so good, right?
One of the best ways to enjoy one of summer’s bounty.
Reblogged this on WE FIT TOGETHER.
This is my favorite way to eat corn on the cob. Was going to share it on my blog soon, glad others enjoy it as much as I do.
You can tell it’s corn season! I’d love to see your version.
My good friend from Argentina makes this for us! It is to die for. I may give it a try now too. 🙂
It’s so good, right?
You’re about the third person I’ve seen blog about elote this week. This might be a sign from the corn gods that I need to try this–though I’m always reluctant to stray from just plain old grilled corn with butter…
It’s corn season and everyone’s got the same thing on their brain. Try it! Just spread a little mayo on a section of corn, sprinkle some chili powder and cotija or parmesan cheese, and squeeze some lime. Easy and good!
