Grilled Mexican Street Corn

Chillin’ and grilling… mouthwatering Mexican Street corn {aka elote}. The combination of the sweet corn with a creamy, cheesy spicy mixture is so tasty : )

Four years ago, I experienced this delicious side at a restaurant and ordered another to go. It was that good! Perfect for a snack or side and so easy to make. 😃💚🌽 #streetcorn #staysafe

Between you and I ….it took me awhile to perfect tender “grilled” corn without completely charring. Peel back the corn husks, remove the silk and close the husk back over the corn. Wrap tightly in foil and grill for 30 minutes at 350-400 degrees.

  1. I’m in Mexico right now and I haven’t seen this dish yet.

    I’ve visited Guadalajara, Merida, Oaxaca and Mexico City.

    Is this dish specific to a region in Mexico? (Or maybe because of covid everyone’s hiding)
