Mexican style grilled corn, or elotes, is a common street food found throughout Mexico and even in some parts of the United States. Ears of corn, still in their husks, are cooked on a charcoal grill until the kernels become tender. When they are ready to be served, each one is dusted with chili powder, a splash of lime juice, and cotija cheese (fresh Mexican cheese). The smokiness of the grill pairs perfectly with the sweet corn and the toppings. Mexican style grilled corn is a delicious way to cook this vegetable and would be a great addition to any Cinco de Mayo celebration. Watch the video below and learn how to make this dish at home.
