Elote Mexican Corn

This elote corn recipe is a delicious way to spice up your corn on the cob. This corn is traditionally grilled but I don’t own a grill so I chose to boil mine. You could also bake these elotes and they would come out wonderful.

I actually tested this recipe out with both sour cream and mayonnaise, and let me tell you. Sour cream wins all day. It’s so much less intense when combined with the flavors of the cotija cheese and tajin. Although also, maybe it was just the combination of corn and mayonnaise in my head!

This recipe pairs well with Mexican dishes and can be dressed up in so many different ways. I’d love to try making an elote covered in bacon!!! And some fresh cilantro on top… the possibilities are honestly endless with this creative but simple side dish.
