Hello! Today I am recreating one of my favorite Mexican snacks or side dishes – Mexican Street Corn aka Elotes. This is a super easy recipe that you can make a little easier than the original. And I'm thrilled because, although I like it – I have never done an authentic version of the house!
If you are not familiar, Elotes = Mexican Street Corn = epic corn on the cob with butter, mayonnaise, cheese and chili. Sometimes you will see that it is served with cilantro, lime, cotija cheese or other fillings, but the way I grew it was basically such a combo.
Oh, and – if you are not familiar with elots … you are probably not familiar with Elote Man, otherwise the guy is packing this amazing snack! He walked next door, pushing the cart and listening to the horn to attract the attention of customers. In the basket he had a huge pot of boiled corn around which there would be all the fillings: butter, mayonnaise, cheese, chili, etc. When you bought an elot, he used large metal tongs to pull the corn out of the water and insert it wooden stick. Then he piled everything with all the fillings and would pass it, dripping with all the delicious flavors melting together.
Today I was doing emotions at home, and it was so good! This may be a new product for me!
I was inspired by this street grilled corn recipe – but I did a few swaps to make it a little easier …
Instead of grilling, I cooked it in broth. This made the whole ear of corn more juicy and fragrant.
Instead of sour cream – I used Greek yogurt. It made it a lower calorie, but still creamy.
I used extra lime and cilantro because I like these flavors.
6 ears of corn
1 Knorr® Chicken Flavor Bouillon Cube
2 hours L. grated layer of lime
2 tbsp. fresh lime juice
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/3 cup Hellmann & # 39; s® or Best Foods® Avocado Oil with a touch of lime mayonnaise
1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 tbsp. ancho chili powder
1 cup finely grated Cotija cheese
Fill a container with water and 2 cubes of broth – bring to a boil. When it starts to boil, add corn to the cob. Boil for 8-10 minutes.
While it is boiling, cook the sauce …
Combine – mayonnaise, greek yogurt, lime, lemon zest, cilantro and chili in a bowl. Stir well. Add salt and pepper to taste.
When the corn is done, remove and dry. Spread the sauce over the corn and on top with cotija cheese. Serve with extra lime and chili.
