Grilled Mexican Street Corn

It’s time to whip up some mouthwatering Grilled Mexican Street Corn before the summer ends and we dive into all those cozy fall flavors. Traditional grilled corn-on-the-cob, aka Elote, is an irresistible combo of creamy, tangy, smoky, and spicy goodness. 🌽🔥🎉 So get your grill on and let’s dig in!

Traditionally, Elote is made by grilling corn on the cob until it develops that beautiful charred exterior. Then, it’s slathered with a generous amount of tangy, garlicky and creamy sauce made from a mixture of mayonnaise, lime juice, garlic, chili powder, and Cojita, which you can swap for some tasty vegan feta. We recommend trying brands like Violife or Trader Joe’s feta, they’re really good! This sauce not only adds a delightful creaminess to the corn but also adds a zesty and slightly spicy kick.

¡Buen provecho! 🌽🔥🌶️🧀🌿
