Mexican Street Corn On The Cob (Elote)

Mexican Street Corn On The Cob (Elote)

Look no further - we’ve got the perfect side dish to your next barbecue dinner right here! This Mexican style street corn, also known as Elote, is often served on a stick or using the husk as a handle so you can take it to-go! It’s full of delicious, refreshing flavors - chili powder, cilantro, cotija cheese, lime, and butter. We can’t decide what’s best! 

Prep: 50 mins. Makes 3 corn cobs.


  • 3 ears, unhusked 
  • 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter 
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder 
  • A handful of freshly chopped cilantro 
  • 1 lime 
  • A handful of cotija cheese crumbled 


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. When heated, place corn, in its husks, on the oven rack. Roast for about 40-45 minutes until corn is tender. 
  2. Peel down the husks and immediately rub each ear of corn with butter. 
  3. Place on a plate and sprinkle with a squeeze of lime, chili powder, cotija, and cilantro. Serve immediately! 

Note: For those looking for a more authentic Elote recipe, you can swap in mayonnaise for the butter.
