Elotes- Mexican Street Corn

Serves 4.


  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup finely crumbled cotija or feta cheese, plus more for serving
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder, plus more for serving
  • 1 medium clove garlic, finely minced (about 1 teaspoon)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro leaves and tender stems
  • 4 ears shucked corn
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges


  • Turn grill to 450F and preheat for 5 minutes.
  • While the grill heats, combine mayonnaise, sour cream, cheese, chili powder, garlic, and cilantro in a large bowl. Stir until combined and set aside.
  • When grill is hot, place corn directly on the grill and cook, rotating occasionally, until cooked through and charred a little bit on all sides, about 8 minutes.
  • Transfer corn to bowl with cheese mixture and use a large spoon to evenly coat corn on all sides with mixture. Sprinkle with extra cheese and chili powder and serve immediately with lime wedges.
