Elote Corn on the Cob


  • 8 ears corn, husks intact
  • 1/2 Cup plain Greek yogurt and/or high quality mayonaise or vegan mayonaise
  • cumin
  • chili powder
  • chopped cilantro
  • crumbled or grated cheese (parmesan or cotija)

  • hot sauce


  1. Preheat the oven the 400 or the grill to medium-high.
  2. Place ears of corn with husk onto a sheet pan and into a 400-degree oven or in medium-high place indirectly on the grill and close the lid. Cook for 30 minutes.
