Street Corn 3 Ways: Mexican, Greek & Caribbean

Street corn 3 ways on a plate.

5 from 1 reviews

The classic Mexican Street Corn, or Elotes, is the ultimate in simple comfort food. It’s uses a base of crema, pumped up with spice and cilantro then topped with cotija cheese. We’ve taken the classic and remixed it to make two additional variations; Greek and Caribbean. You’re never going to want to eat plain corn on the cob again.
