Mexican Corn Dip Recipe


Elote, Ready For Dippin’

If you’ve ever had elote before, then do I have a treat for you. If you don’t know what elote is, let me explain before we dive into this deliciousness.

Elote is a Mexican street corn. Typically it’s a grilled cob covered in butter and mayo, followed by cotija cheese, chili powder/hot sauce, and some lime juice. Needless to say, it’s amazing.


We decided to take all of those awesome flavors to the next level and make it into a dip. All of the deliciousness of elote, off the cob and ready for dippin’.

Even if you’ve never had elote before, I guarantee you’re gonna adore this dip. Here’s how you make it.

The ingredients you’ll need are:

  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 4 cups corn kernels
  • 1 jalapeƱo, chopped
  • 3 tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp. cotija cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tbsp. cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • juice of 1 lime

Time To Make It

Melt your 2 tbsp. of butter in a saucepan. Add corn and jalapeƱos and cook for about a minute, then add mayonnaise, cheese, cilantro, chili powder, garlic and lime juice.

Stir and cook until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. Serve with some chips or whatever else you see fit, and you’re all done!

This elote-inspired dip will work wonders as an appetizer. It’s sweet, creamy, salty and spicy… what more could you possibly want?
