You don’t need much to make amazing, super simple elote. That makes sense because street corn is typically prepared in a small stall out on the streets or sidewalks. This recipe calls for corn on the cob, olive oil, sour cream, mayonnaise, Tajín seasoning, lime juice, and queso fresco or cotija cheese.
The portions used here are for four ears of corn, but for the record, this is one recipe where you can slather it on thick rather than measuring precisely. Also, in case you were wondering, Tajín seasoning, which you can order online, is a blend of chili peppers, salt, and lime, and it’s delicious.
