Mexican street corn off the cob - Esquites

Mexican street corn off the cob - Esquites

When you buy Mexican street corn from a cart in the park or the public plaza you have two options: on the cob called elotes or in a cup called esquites. The cart will always be loaded with toppings for your corn; lime juice, mayonnaise, grated cheese, chili powder, butter, and hot sauce so that you can personalize your cup. In this recipe we’re making esquites, the street corn off the cob in a cup. Be ready to add it to your favorite dishes because you will love it!


Serving: 1
Hot level: Medium-High


2 tablespoons or 30ml vegetable oil
1 ½ cup of water
Salt to taste
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
60g of feta or Cotija cheese finely crumbled
1/2 cup finely sliced white onion
1 clove garlic finely sliced
Lime juice to taste
Start by adding the garlic and onion in a pot with hot oil. Before they turn golden add the Corn Kernels and sauté for about 2 or 3 minutes. Add water and salt to taste. Let it cook no more than 15 minutes (as the corn is precooked). Plate the corn along with the broth for a watery consistency (this is how you eat traditional esquites). Dress with mayo, add cheese and lime juice to taste. Finally, add any hot sauce sauce to taste and enjoy!
