How to Make Mexican Style Grilled Corn

April 29, 2012

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.
