Delicious Mexican Street Corn (Elote)

Elote is a Mexican Street corn side dish sold by street vendors. This sweet and creamy dish is typically grilled but can also be boiled like traditional corn on the cob. This Mexican grilled corn recipe can be served in many ways such as with mayonnaise, but our favorite toppings are a sprinkle of spicy chili powder and a few pearls of Caviar Limes for that extra pop.
