Mexican Street Corn - Elote

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 8


  • 6-8 Ears of Corn husked
  • Mexican Crema found in your local grocery store by the cheeses or Mayonnaise
  • Cotija Cheese Again, over by the cheese section
  • Chili Powder or Smoked Paprika
  • 2 Limes
  • Fresh Cilantro chopped


  • Heat a grill to medium-high heat and add the corn.
  • There is no need to add salt as the cotija cheese is salty.
  • Grill on each side for a few minutes until some of the kernals begin to look darker, and a little charred, as pictured above.
  • Remove from the grill and immediately spread the mexican crema all over the corn.
  • Sprinkle lightly with cotija cheese, chili powder and lime juice.
  • Top with a little bit of the fresh cilantro and enjoy.
  • Best eaten hot off the grill, so be careful not to burn yourself.
