Mexican Street Corn
Mexican street corn (a.k.a. “Elotes”) is a bold way to grill corn! Get a good char on the kernels before slathering with a cheese-spiked sauce and lots of fresh lime. Traditional recipes use mayo, spices, and Cotija cheese. Streamline and use Cheesy Fries Seasoning as the base and swap mayo for protein-rich Greek yogurt.

To save time, precook corn in the microwave! Place the unshucked cobs in Multipurpose Steamer, cover, and microwave on high for 5 min before grilling. Using oven mitts, gently grip tip of corn with one hand and squeeze. It will cleanly pop out of husks, leaving the sticky, silky threads behind. Then, quickly char on the grill!
