This Mexican corn on the cob (also called Elote) recipe is super simple, and you can serve it along the Mexican Layered dip I shared last time I was here. If you missed that colorful recipe, be sure to grab it here and try.
Hey friends! It’s Aniko from Place of My Taste, and I am back today to continue to share the delicious food recipes here on Jen’s wonderful blog. Why all the Mexican food? I am not Mexican lol but who doesn’t love Mexican food, right?
My family have been all about entertaining, grilling, and enjoying the outdoors during the summer months and there is nothing better than whipping up easy, but delish recipes that will please the crowd. Raise your hand if you agree. We had a bunch of our families in town for the last three weeks, and Mexican recipes had hit the table not once, but many times. From the Lime Chicken Tacos to the Skillet Seared Fish Tacos, from Mexican corn on the cob to the yummy guacamoles… we had them all!
We always have a few ears of corns laying around for salads and grilling, so one evening I served this tasty version of corn for my family, and they sure licked all ten their fingers. This savory recipe from the south of the border is very simple to make, and I can guarantee that you won’t go back to your plain salty and buttery cobs after you try this goodness!
