This Grilled Mexican Street Corn is grilled to smoky perfection then smothered in a delicious and creamy vegan mayonnaise blend and Lime Crema. It’s the best side dish!
As you probably may have guessed, it’s full blown grilling season in our house! We’ve lit up the grill every week to pre-celebrate summer and are enjoying it thoroughly. For some crazy reason, neither of us had tried grilled Mexican street corn aka elote and we finally did! Can I just say?! Ah-mazing. Truly amazing. Then I had to share the recipe with you – it’s so easy that you’re going to want to make it over, and over.
Great news – this is VEGAN! I know right?! Everything from the parmesan cheese to the other cheeses and the lime crema. I used that as the perfect excuse to over smother these corns in as much delicious toppings as I wanted. You could definitely swap out for non vegan alternatives, but regardless this recipe does not disappoint. Grilled corn is a pretty delicious side dish on its own, but it becomes extra special with the addition of the parmesan cheese, mayonnaise blend and the bomb lime crema.
I grilled these corns in the husks 1) because I am obsessed with how cool grilled corn in husks look, and 2) it’s insane how easy it was to just put the corn on the grill, and leave it. It’s really so easy to make and fool proof. The lime crema is one I make often, and we just came into a few jars of vegan mayonnaise (aka health store binge) so I wanted to really try it all out on this recipe.
Go all out, friends. There isn’t even much to say about this recipe except it needs to not only be on the menu for Father’s Day, but to make an appearance in your summer grilling at least once. You won’t regret when you see how incredibly easy it is to make, and how tasty too. The Mr. and I definitely polished these off way quicker than I thought we would, so we’ll be getting some more corn to try this out again. Happy grilling!
