How to Make People Think The Elote Man Lives in Your Kitchen
If you haven’t tried elote yet, then you probably live under a rock! This street corn delicacy is truly a one of a kind dish that naturally brings people together. As a result, one can find an elote man on the streets of LA (or in Mexico), where crowds of friends and family are lined up waiting to eat this savory treat.
The mixture of the crunchy yet soft texture of the corn makes for a delightful bite every time. While the taste of the salty yet sweet corn mixture is almost too perfect. The sweetness from the corn mixed with savory butter, cheese, mayonnaise, and chile powder is a match made in heaven! Just top it off with lime and you got the perfect snack to eat on a summer day.
And although you might not actually have an elote man living in your kitchen, with this recipe your guests are going to question if you went out and bought the dish straight from the man himself. Additionally, while elote is traditionally eaten on the cob, this recipe is an updated and mess-free version of the OG elote dish. We took the original elote recipe and created a dip from it. This is for all the chips and dip lovers out there!
