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 jalapeño, 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 jalapeños 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?
