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®.

How to Make Mexican Street Corn
Mix mayonnaise, lime juice and salt in large bowl; set aside.
Heat oil in large nonstick skillet on high heat. Add jalapeno; cook and stir 2 minutes or until softened. Stir in corn and spread mixture into an even layer in skillet. Cover and cook, without stirring, about 2 minutes. Stir, cover and cook 1 minute longer. Add chili powder; cook, uncovered, 30 seconds, stirring constantly.
Transfer corn mixture to bowl with mayonnaise mixture. Toss gently to coat.
Stir in Cotija and cilantro until evenly mixed.
Serve immediately with lime wedges. Mmmmh. Easy to make and utterly delicious.
It also travels well.
