What is Elote?

Elote is a popular street food in Mexico. It is roasted or boiled corn that is served on the cob or in kernels in a generous layer of mayonnaise, spices, chili sauce and Cotija cheese!

Key Points

  • Substitute Mayo with Greek Yogurt and sour cream for a lighter version. If you prefer Mayo go for it!
  • Paprika is used for coloring–could use ground Kashmiri chili pepper (mild spicy) or chili pepper
  • Use feta cheese or ground Parmesan instead of cojita cheese.
  • Add a touch of MSA’s Flavor Pop Sea Salt.
