We used to think that nothing could top corn on the cob slathered with butter and salt, but that was before we tasted elote, Mexican grilled corn served with mayonnaise, chiles, and lime. We add cilantro to ours and sprinkle on chili powder at the table in order to control the heat.

Ingredients

  • 4 ears corn
  • Fresh cilantro
  • 1 lime
  • ½ cup paleo mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup grated cotija cheese
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

1

Prep and grill the corn

  • Remove the husks and silks from the corn. (If desired, leave the stem end of the cob attached for easy handling on the grill.
On a grill or in a large dry grill pan over medium-high heat, add the corn and cook, turning, until charred on all sides, 5 to 7 minutes. While the corn cooks, prepare the cilantro-mayonnaise.

2

Make the cilantro-mayonnaise

  • Coarsely chop the cilantro; reserve half for garnish.
  • Juice half the lime for the mayonnaise; cut the other half into wedges for garnish.
In a small bowl, combine the paleo mayonnaise, half the cilantro, and 1 teaspoon lime juice; season to taste with salt and pepper and mix well.

3

Assemble the Mexican corn

Using a spatula or spoon, slather the corn with the cilantro-mayonnaise. Sprinkle with the cotija and as much of the chile powder as you like.

4

Serve

Transfer the corn to individual plates. Garnish with the remaining cilantro and serve with the lime wedges.
