WHAT IS MEXICAN STREET CORN?
If you have been to a street fair or food truck fair you may have seen people walking around with corn on the cob on a stick. In Mexico they call it “elote” which literally means corn cob. It comes from Mexico City known widely for it’s street food vendors. The corn is charred on a grill, then slathered in a mixture of mayonnaise or sour cream, chili pepper and lime juice then rolled in cotija cheese and topped off with more chili powder and fresh cilantro. This recipe takes all the flavors of street corn and turns it into amazing cheesy and spicy nachos!
