If you’ve ever been to Mexico, or have attended a Mexican festival, you’ve undoubtedly run into an elotero (corn street vendor). They sell steamed corn, either on the cob or in a cup, garnished with lots of creamy, cheesy yumminess.  It’s definitely one of my Mom’s faves and I’m happy to be able to recreate it for gatherings via this Easy Mexican Street Corn recipe from McCormick®.
