Our favorite summer grill staple, this simple Mexican Street Corn (also referred to as Elote) transforms basic char-grilled corn into a creamy, tangy delight. It is a perennially perfect showcase for sweet summer corn and will win rave reviews at your next barbeque or backyard gathering. Enjoy right off the cob or slice the kernels off the corn and toss to make an excellent make-ahead salad.
1. Over a medium-high grill pan, cook oil-rubbed corn until tender and slightly charred in places, about 10-15 minutes.
2. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, chipotle chili powder, Tajin seasoning (if using), sea salt, and lime juice and zest. Brush corn with mayonnaise mixture. Sprinkle with cotija cheese, fresh cilantro, and green onions. Serve with lime wedges.
Char a fresh jalapeno pepper alongside the corn, and you have an excellent garnish for your Mexican street corn or salad.
