Grilled Mexican Street Corn (Elote) with Adobo Seasoning

Elotes are the best way to eat corn. Big statement, but I stand by it. The sweet corn topped with aromatic Adobo Spice Blend (Mexican oregano, paprika, freshly ground cumin, and more), mayonnaise, lime juice, and cotija cheese is a combination we can't get enough of. We make this close to once a week in the summer - it's so easy!

Servings: 5

Ingredients:

  • 5 ears of corn, shucked
  • 1/2 cup of mayonnaise
  • 1 lime + additional wedges for garnish
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Adobo Spice Blend
  • Cotjia cheese for sprinkling 

Instructions:

  1. Soak shucked ears of corn in water for 20 miniutes.
  2. Meanwhile, combine mayonnaise and juice of one lime.
  3. Heat grill to high heat. Grill corn, rotating every few minutes until charred on all sides, about 10-15 minutes.
  4. Remove corn from the grill, slather with mayonnaise and lime juice mixture, sprinkle evenly with Adobo Seasoning, squeeze additional lime if desired, and sprinkle cotija cheese.
