Elote Dip

A twist on the classic Mexican street corn. This dip is so addicting, I guarantee you'll have the favorite dish at the next get together/grill out.

Taking the classic street corn that is typicall covered in mayo, coated with cotija cheese and sprinkled with spices- this dip is super easy to make and uses limited bowls/utensils which means = easier clean up! I have made this several times this summer so far, and every time I make it I love it more and more. Creamy, a little bit of spice, great crunch and some sweetness from the corn- makes this a must have at your next picnic/gathering!
