Mexican Grilled Corn “Elote” – The Final Grilled Corn Recipe I’Ll E'er Need

I know a recipe came out good when my married adult woman Michele says something to the consequence of, “we tin never accept this made whatever other way, ever,” which is precisely what she said subsequently fierce through 2 ears of this amazing Mexican-style grilled corn. She wasn’t kidding.

I accept no sentiment how authentic this is, every bit I’ve never had this inwards Mexico, or fifty-fifty prepared past times actual Mexicans, hence let’s play it rubber too only nation this was inspired past times “elote,” every bit it’s called. I’m certain in that place are hundreds of variations, but the 1 constant seems to endure the terminal step, which consists of grating copious amounts of Cotija cheese over the seasoned ears.

Cotija tin endure constitute inwards whatever large grocery shop (at to the lowest degree inwards California), too for me it’s similar a bland, slightly drier Feta cheese. I know that doesn’t audio particularly appetizing, but when combined alongside the creamy chili mayo, too the smoky grilled corn, it’s absolutely to move for. In a pinch, Parmesan or Feta would work, but I can’t imagine it beingness every bit perfect.

There should endure no shortage of fresh corn on the cob this fourth dimension of year, hence I highly encourage y'all to larn or hence (twice every bit much every bit y'all intend y'all are going to eat), too laissez passer on this amazing recipe a endeavour soon. Enjoy!
