Easy and flavorful homemade, Mexican street corn in just a few minutes!

I know I talk about my LDS mission a lot in my posts, but it is for good reason. I was a Spanish-speaking missionary in California and most nights we ate dinner with Latin american families. The little Latin cuisine I had experienced was very Americanized. After going to a training center (MTC) to prepare to serve my LDS mission and speak the Spanish language, I was sent to Santa Rosa, CA. The guy who would be my first companion (trainer) for the next 3 months was a seasoned veteran as far as missionaries go, and knew a lot about the Latin cuisine delicacies.

He, like me, loved experiencing food. One of the very first Latin foods he had me try was authentic elote (street corn) from a street vendor. I had honestly never seen nor thought of anything other than butter on corn. I was then introduced to this strange looking concoction of corn, some mayonnaisey, creamy mixture, some dark red spice, and cheese.

I took a bite of the mystery food and was instantly hooked. I soon learned this to be elote, and it made me wonder why I had eaten corn any other way before. What a weird yet amazing combination. I found out what it all entailed and started making it on my own because I couldn’t get enough of it. A few minutes of grilling the corn, mixing the cream mixture, and sprinkling on extras, will get you this amazing combination right from your own home! Hope you enjoy!
