Elote Corn in a bowl tastes better than on the cob. Well, it certainly isn’t as messy to eat. And it can be made ahead.
4 ears of corn roasted (I shuck the corn and roast it dry on the grill over medium heat turning it as it browns.)
2 T mayonnaise
1/3 c dry parmesan cheese (Yes, the kind in a container)
½ c finely chopped scallions
2 cloves of garlic, pressed
2T lime juice
½ t smoked paprika
1 t ancho chili powder
Sprinkle of red chili flakes
Roast the corn and slice it off the cob.
While corn is roasting combine topping ingredients in a bowl.
Add corn and give an extra squeeze of lime juice before serving. Ole!
