Elotes : Mexican Chili Cheese Corn

3년 전

Yesterday I posted about grilled corn, someone scolded me for not mentioning Mexican street corn. To be honest I was told about it by my brother a few months back, they serve it on food trucks in NY, I have not tasted it myself, but he says it's an awesome product. Here in Ohio this recipe has not made it to the streets yet, we still have the old fashioned grilled corn.

This is a video by Serious Eats on how to make Mexican Elotes:

Now how to make this at home?

To make 6 cups of corn you will need:

  • 4 Tablespoons Mayonnaise
  • 4 Tablespoons Creme Fraîche ( It's the mexican version of sour cream, if you can not find it, just mix heavy cream and buttermilk)
  • 1/2 tsp Chilli Powder
  • 1/2 cup of Cotija Cheese, you can substitute Queso Blanco, or Goat Cheese.
  • 1 lime

Rub hot corn with a wedge of lime, spread creme, mayo, a decent coat of cheese then sprinkle some chilli powder and salt all over. The mayo and creme help the grated cheese stick to the cup. My brother adds melted butter as well so be creative you can also choose your favorite cheese.

This video show how it's served on a mexican street corner:

Memes worth $71 here on Steemit.
I think that is a unique selling feature we should add when we are advertising Steemit haha
I wonder how much is generated from purely street food in Mexico


Food is very cheap in Mexico for example here in Brownsville TX the average price for an elote is $3.00 or $2.00 in a cup. In Mexico it's about .75 and they don't serve it in a cup in Mexico

very tasty in appearance.


Yes looks delicious


yeh right

Maxican food always give me pleasure:-)

Going to give that a try, usually just load the corn up with butter salt and pepper

Wow, I love to that spicy chili corn, bored with sweet corn.

I'm Mexican and I approve! Also made my mouth water a bit. Y'all should try this if you haven't! You can also add melted cheese on top of the corn, literally food porn.


literally food porn
Literally corn porn - FTFY :D

It looks so delicious and thank you for recipe. I want to make but I'm not sure can I this groceries actually find in my country to buy or maybe I just don't understand those weird names of groceries. But it's 4 a.m. and I am pretty hungry because of your post. :D Poor Croatia, poor me... i just want that corn. :D


you can substitute most of the ingredients that you can not find locally. I would guess you would have issues finding the creme or the cheese, but you can use any hard cheese you like even feta cheese. as for the cream it's the equivalent of sour cream, if you can not find it just use melted butter and any soft cheese.


Oh, thank you. I'll try make something like that and post it with your name in a few days. I need to be productive for a few hours and I'm thinking about that corn... Cornsomnia (need to wake up soon).

In our town in Philippines, we have a lot of corn but I never taste like this before. I will try this someday..Thanks for this idea.

Thank you so much for sharing this post sir @joseph. It suddenly made me hungry. This food looks delicious. I wanna try making this when I got home ^_^

I love Mexican elotes. I am not from Mexico, but we eat them frequently at home, but with no chili. Tasty!

I am seriously thinking about making this but from the corn I get from Walmart when they occasionally sell it for $0.10 cents an ear.

There are way my African people roast their corn. we don't add any spices , we just roast the corn and eat it with coconut or pear.

Im down for one

Thank you all versions of this dish sound interesting, must pass this on to husband ex professional chef who is making enchilladas today!

Honestly those pics and videos, that elote is subpar. I live in Brownsville TX the southern most part of Texas. You want real Mexican food without having to visit Mexico come to this city. I've been to Austin and San Antonio but nothing compares to food from home. Where literally the smell of homemade tortilla's is in the air.

In my travels, I also noticed that kids in Thailand like spicy food, and kids in India love curry. I'm hoping to introduce my son, Hudson, to lots of veggies and spices when he's young. I say that before he's started on solid foods, so it could be easier in theory than practice!

Looks so simple to make, but when you taste mmmm mmmm a miracle in your mouth! Here in my country, instead of eating the corn straight from the cob, the kernels are dipped in butter and cheese, then eaten in a cup. It lacks that Creme Fraîche and citrus-y kick from the lime, but I've seen chili powder being used on a number of occasions.

had this at work one time it was gross lul

it looks very good food menu. i so want to try it..can I taste it? .looks very good .. what is the name of this food😀

look tasty surely gonna try that.

i like this post

Mouth watering !
Looks so much yummy .

this is very nice.

Thanks for sharing. Its delicious.. Wana try this at home as there are lots of corn we produce....
