This Easy Mexican Street Corn Recipe Will Be Your Summer Side-Dish Staple

You can’t beat food fresh from the grill, especially during the summer season. And given that this recipe for Mexican Street Corn, also known as elote, is so easy to make, you’ll be grilling it up at each and every summer barbecue and picnic this summer.

This recipe comes from the Seeded At The Table blog and will only take about 15 minutes to make.

For the ingredients, you’ll need fresh corn along with mayonnaise and sour cream for the spread. You’ll add spices such as garlic salt and paprika for added flavor and top it with cotija cheese. But if for some reason you have a hard time locating this at the grocery store, the blog recommends trying feta cheese instead.

Once the corn is on the grill and the spread’s been created in a separate bowl, this recipe is a breeze. Just wait for the corn to cook, coat with the spread and enjoy. It’s as simple as that.
