Grilled corn recipe

When it comes to hosting a party, Mexican street corn, commonly known as elote, is necessary. It may be served at both casual backyard gatherings and formal meals.
Mexican cuisine is my personal favorite since it is bursting with flavors and special spices. My family demands that I cook this exact dish every summer since it is so simple to follow.
As you can also see it in many food trucks, you probably already know this. It is ideal for a fast meal or as an afternoon snack.

Additionally, Mexican street corn can be used as a main dish or a side dish. Sharing this recipe, which I have been using for a while, with you would be great.
