IMG_4252

Elotes, or grilled corn brushed with mayonnaise and coated in chili powder and cotija cheese, are a popular street food in Nicaragua. Served piping hot off the grill, with fresh lime wedges to squeeze on top, they’re a surprisingly delicious combination of flavors that will instantly become a favorite. The mayo melts into the corn and helps the other ingredients stick.  By roasting the corn in the oven, you keep more of its nutritional value intact, and by judiciously using smaller amounts of mayo and cheese; you can enjoy this super snack without worrying about its adverse effects. These elotes also make a great addition to grilled meats or fish at dinnertime.
