Elote-Mexican Corn
  • 4 ears corn on the cob or 24 oz. frozen white corn
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup crumbled Cotija cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Chili Powder (regular chili powder or hot Mexican Chili Powder)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1 fresh lime
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  1. Grill or cook the corn on the cob on a baking sheet in a 425° oven until corn is cooked. When testing for doneness of corn the cob should be easily pierced that way the kernels will come off the cob easily.
  2. You can cook the corn in or out of the husks.
  3. Butter the cooked corn.
  4. Drizzle corn with mayonnaise.
  5. Sprinkle chili powder, salt, and pepper onto corn.
  6. Add crumbled Cotija Cheese.
  7. Squeeze fresh lime juice onto corn.
  8. Top with fresh cilantro.
When I cook frozen corn in a cast iron skillet, I typically add a sliced jalapeno to spice it up.
