Elote is a Mexican sweet corn snack recipe (मेक्सिकन स्वीट कॉर्न स्नैक रेसिपी) that is very popular as a street food. Traditionally, it is made by roasting corns over the hot coals. It is then brushed with mayo, butter, and seasoned with a generous sprinkle of chili and salt. A squeeze of lime and sprinkle of grated feta cheese add a spectacular finishing touch. The smoky aroma is enough to make your mouth water. Each bite has so much unconstrained spunk. The taste is absolutely electrifying. The traditional elote is very similar to the Indian version of roasted corn or bhuna hua bhutta.

The traditional recipes across several cuisines have been evolving to keep up with the latest trends. The same is true for this delicious Mexican-style sweet corn snack. Here is an amazing corn recipe that gives a delicious makeover to the classic elote. It is a very quick and easy snack recipe and you can whip it up when you have friends coming over. They would be super-delighted to taste something that is so different and so delicious. It is an insanely easy recipe, which makes it even more special.

This sweet corn recipe has a crunch from potato chips. The squeeze of different sauces compliments the flavor of the chips. I have used two flavors of potato chips, one for each corn on the cob. The Lay’s Spanish Tomato Tango pairs well with the Domino’s cheese sauce. The ketchup adds a lip-smacking zing to the American Style Cream and Onion. You can use your favorite flavor of potato chips and drizzle it with your favorite sauce. I had once made an elote  covered with Lay’s Indian Magic Masala and drizzled it with Homemade Cilantro Mayo. It was equally gorgeous.

Now let’s take a look at the preparation and ingredients of the Mexican sweet corn snack recipe.

    This was delicious! Unfortunately, I didn’t have any chips so I used Doritos but they were crunchy and tasty. I’ll definitely make this again but with chips. And then probably again with Doritos … thank you for the wonderful recipe. It’s a terrific quick side dish on a work night.
