Try this popular Mexican steet food at home. Elote is corn on the cob elevated to another level for sure and so easy to make!
Preheat your grill to about 500°F.
Shuck each ear and place on aluminum foil.
Brush lightly with the melted butter. Roll the foil and fold up the ends.
Place the wrapped ear on the grill and turn them ¼ turn about every 4 minutes.
Optional: Remove each ear from the foil and grill to your desired level of brown or char on each ear. Rotate as you continue to grill.
Allow the ears to cool slightly. Tip: If you have disposable wooden chop sticks sharpen them in a pencil sharpener. Insert the stick into each ear and cut to your desired length.
Brush each ear with the crema Mexicana until well coated.
Sprinkle each ear with the chile lime seasoning and cotija cheese. I like to use a baking tray to roll each ear around to get them coated. Optional: Mix the cayenne pepper into the chile lime seasoning for a kick or heat!
Toss on the chopped cilantro and serve.
You can find Elote seasoning at Trader Joe's. Many stores also sell Tajin which is very similar to the chile lime seasoning.
