Elote, or Mexican street corn, is a cooked ear of corn, smeared with mayonnaise and crema, covered with crumbled cheese, and sprinkled with spices and fresh citrus. It’s meant to be eaten with your hands, while on the move.
This salad keeps all the best parts and serves the dish as a dinnertime side. We paired this with traditional American BBQ – exceptionally delicioso!
Even still, combining the corn with mayo and sour cream in this recipe seemed like a lot. I’m here now to say – it’s just right. And absolutely scrumptious when served cold on a hot summer’s night. Yummm.
