Grilled Mexican Street Corn: How to Make Corn on the Cob With Cotija, Lime & Cilantro!

Skip the refried beans or Spanish rice this week and serve this easy Mexican corn on the cob (elote). If you want to make this recipe ahead of time, simply wrap the corn in foil and keep warm in the oven.

You'll need:

  • 4 ears corn on the cob, shucked and cleaned
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • Cotija cheese
  • chopped fresh cilantro
  • lime wedges

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Grill the corn on an outdoor grill or in a very hot cast iron skillet until charred, about 8 minutes. Turn often.
  2. Dip the corn into the melted butter.
  3. Spread mayonnaise over the corn.
  4. Sprinkle with Cotija cheese and cilantro. Serve with lime wedges.
