Elotes Recipe (Mexican Corn)

Ingredients: – 4 ears corn, husked – 2 tablespoons mayonnaise – 2 tablespoons Mexican crema or sour cream – 1/2 cup Cotija cheese, freshly grated, or queso fresco – Chili powder or Tajin, to taste – 1 lime, quartered – Fresh chopped cilantro, for garnish (optional)

Instructions: 1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over medium-high heat.

Add the ears of corn and cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Alternatively, you can cook the corn in an instant pot.

(Optional step): Brush corn with melted butter and grill corn on medium heat until slightly charred.

Mix the mayonnaise and Mexican crema together and spread a thin layer all around the corn ears.

Sprinkle generously with Cotija cheese and then the desired amount of chili powder.

Serve garnished with cilantro, and with a lime wedge on the side for squeezing on top. Enjoy immediately.
