Grilled Mexican Street Corn is one of the ultimate summer side dishes! This homemade version is just as good as the elote corn you’ll find from the vendors in Mexico. When served at parties and cookouts it will be the first thing to go!

Elotes, also known as grilled Elote Mexicano, Mexican street corn, or Mexican grilled corn, is a popular Mexican street food. “Elote” means “corn on the cob” in Spanish, and the recipe consists of corn on the cob that has been grilled and slathered with a mayo or crema sauce, topped with Cotija cheese, and dusted with chili powder.


  • 7 ears yellow corn, shucked
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup Mexican crema
  • 1 tsp lime zest
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp lime juice
  • 3/4 tsp finely mincced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder, plus more for topping
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 3/4 cup finely crumbled Cotija cheese
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 3 Tbsp finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • Mexican hot sauce, such as Valentino or Tapatio
