I have fallen in love with Mexican Street Corn, called Elote, and have been making so many recipes with the same flavors. Elote is traditionally a roasted corn cob slathered in mayonnaise with chili powder, lime, and cilantro. It is a magically, simple food full of fresh flavors and I just love it!

To turn Elote into a creamed corn, I used those same flavors with a simple creamed corn recipe. Homemade creamed corn is so simple and fast to make, and holds very well if you want to make it in advance. I love to serve up different creamed corns with BBQ and grilling recipes.

To make Elote Creamed Corn, combine everything except the cheese, lime and cilantro in a pot. Bring it to a simmer and let it cook to thicken for 15 minutes. Then remove it from the heat and add the mozzarella cheese, lime, and cilantro. Season it to taste at this point with salt, lime, and chili powder. If desired, crumble cotija cheese on top (the classic elote cheese!) and serve warm. Use more chili powder, jalapeno, ground red pepper, or hot sauce to make it spicier. Frozen corn works beautifully in this Mexican Street Corn Creamed Corn. There is no need to defrost the corn, just add the pound bag of corn to the pan cold.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Dice the jalapeno peppers. Remove the seeds and white ribs inside if desired for less heat.
  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the corn, diced jalapeno, heavy cream, milk, butter, sugar, cornstarch, chili powder, and salt.
  • Stir and bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook until the sauce thickens, approximately 15 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Add in the juice of the lime and mozzarella cheese and stir to melt the cheese. Season to taste with additional salt, chili powder, lime, or cheese as desired.
  • Top with the cotija cheese and serve warm.

Notes

You can use a thinner milk such as 2% in place of whole milk, but use less as it is thinner or add more cornstarch.
This is a mild heat recipe.  For a spicy dish, add more jalapeno, ground red pepper, or hot sauce.
Frozen corn is perfect here and you can throw it in the pot still frozen, it will just take a few extra minutes to warm up!

    Lately, I can not eat enough corn so this recipe is a saving grace! I love this recipe because I usually cook tacos/burritos at least once a week and can easily add this in as a side. I did use a touch more chili powder and extra cheese because they are two of my fav. ingredients and it turned out great. Delicious recipe- thank you!
