Mexican Street Corn (Elote)

This is my version not in any way authentic. It's a very last minute attempt and I don't have the majority of the ingredients.  In this version the corn is just steamed.  Typically the corn is grilled to have that smoky flavor.  I think I captured the essence of this dish.  I hope you will give it a try.

Mexican street Corn

8 medium ears of sweet corn
1/2 cup Dahi 3% plain yogurt (Mexican crema is better)

1/2 cup minced cilantro
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper
2 drops lime oil ( 2 teaspoons lime zest)
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup baby bell ( baby bell is a milder softer cheese ecause it's what I have, cotija cheese is originally used)

  1. Boil or grill corn until kernels are soft.
  2. Sauce: In a small bowl mix together yogurt, mayo, cilantro, garlic, ground chipotle pepper, lime oil and apple cider vinegar.
  3. Brush cooked corn with the sauce and sprinkle with cheese.
