The Best Corn on the Cob
This Mexican Style Corn on the Cob recipe, otherwise known as Elotas, is the absolute best way to grill your corn. It’s the street style Corn on the Cob you get from the push carts in L.A. so I’m tellin’ ya, you’ve got a winner here with this recipe. It’s absolutely, hands down, the best Corn on the Cob I have ever had!
Grilled Corn on the Cob
I find that the best Corn on the Cob always tastes better when it’s been grilled. In the video tutorial, I just use an electric grill for filming but it’s not even close to the same thing. So if you’ve got an outside grill with propane or some charcoal, that’s definitely the way to go. The smoke and the flame will take the Elotas to a whole new level. Also, be sure to use regular Mayonnaise, not light. You’ll cheat the flavor. The Cheese I used here is a Mexican Cheese called Catija but you can use Queso Fresca or even just Parmesan if that’s all you’ve got. It really won’t make that big of a difference. Just don’t replace any other ingredients unless you want to stick to plain chili powder instead of the taco seasoning.
