Grilled Mexican Street Corn (Elote)

Elote is a Mexican grilled corn recipe that you’ll frequently see being sold by street vendors and at festivals in Mexico. It is simply sweet corn on the cob that is grilled and then slathered with a creamy sauce, seasoned with chili powder, and dusted with lots of salty grated cheese.

This grilled corn makes a great side to any Barbecue meal, like ribs, pork, chicken or steak.
