Quick and Easy Mexican Corn in a Cup

Updated on June 4, 2017
Au fait profile image

C.E.Clark began cooking for real at age 11, and over the years developed a love of creating her own recipes. This is one of her most popular

Authentic Mexican Corn In a Cup

Recently, one of my co-workers asked me if I had ever eaten Mexican corn in a cup, or eloté. Elotés is roasted or grilled corn on the cob slathered in butter and mayonnaise, rolled in queso fresco (a crumbly Mexican cheese), and then sprinkled with cayenne pepper or ground chili powder to taste.

Corn in a cup is the same thing as described above, but the corn has been cut from the corncob and put in a cup, glass, or bowl as shown in the photos here.

I had not even heard of Mexican corn before and had no idea that it was such a popular street food. Here in Texas, Mexican food is common and most people enjoy it whether or not they are of Mexican descent.

My friend and co-worker, Americo Martinez, described this delicious dish for me because it is one of his favorite foods, and he gave me a list of ingredients, but no specific amounts of those ingredients, and a rough description of how to prepare this treat . Once I understood how the corn was prepared I went about experimenting.

Americo told me that the corn need not be roasted or grilled, although he believes it has a better flavor when prepared that way. He said ordinary canned whole kernel corn works just fine too. So that is what I used to experiment and come up with the following recipe.

I made Mexican corn in a cup for my daughter and myself and we both loved it. My daughter said the chili powder really made the difference, and that was what my friend Americo recommended as best, too.

Ingredients for One Elote Serving

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of whole kernel corn
  • 1 Tablespoon of butter cut into smaller pieces
  • 2 Tablespoons of lime juice
  • ½ Cup of mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup of Queso Fresco cheese crumbled or shredded -- or substitute Feté Cheese.
  • Sprinkles of cayenne pepper or ground chili powder as desired, whichever you prefer.

Notes:

  1. Feel free to add or subtract from the various ingredients to make it just right for you and your family. Some people prefer more cheese while others may prefer more mayonnaise, etc. Manipulating the ingredients for corn prepared this way is pretty easy with little danger of spoiling the taste.
  2. For serving more than one person, just multiply the ingredients listed above times the number of people you want to serve.

Directions

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of whole kernel corn
  • 1 Tablespoon of butter cut into smaller pieces
  • 2 Tablespoons of lime juice
  • ½ Cup of mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup of Queso Fresco cheese crumbled or shredded -- or substitute Feté Cheese.

Instructions

  1. Place the corn and butter in a cereal sized microwavable bowl and heat on high for 1-2 minutes, until butter is soft enough to easily mix into the corn, and the corn is warmed through.
  2. Mix the mayonnaise and lime juice into the corn and butter.
  3. Sprinkle the cheese on top of the corn mixture and then sprinkle with your preference of either chili sauce or cayenne pepper. Ready to eat!
  4. Serve in the small bowl that you microwaved it in, or in an attractive cup or mug. You can garnish with a wedge of lime if you wish to make it look prettier.
  5. Keep the above ingredients on hand to make this recipe as a great super easy quick snack, or make it for a side dish. It would look pretty on the lunch or dinner table too, served literally in a cup with a wedge of lime on the side beside each place setting, or in a serving bowl to be passed.

      Lena Durante, thank you for checking out this recipe. My friend Americo, as I stated in the introduction, says it definitely tastes superb when the corn is roasted or grilled before adding these other ingredients. Hope you'll have a chance to experiment with it!

      I really love this idea! I bet if you grill or roast the corn first, it adds a nice smoky flavor that makes this even more reminiscent of the traditional kind on a stick1

      BettB, thank you for checking out this recipe and for sharing your knowledge of all these healthful substitute products. I always read the comments on the articles I read, and I hope everyone reads them here too, so that they will see your great suggestions here. Thank you so much for sharing them.

      Denise, I hope BettB's response helps you. She seems to have several different options. Thank you for your inquiry.

      Because of the extreme fat content here I'd suggest using Reduced Fat Vegenaise instead of mayo. Vegenaise is one of the best vegan mayos (no cholesterol) and the reduced fat one is some kind of miracle - if not completely as thick and fatty as real mayo, it's really close and half the fat and calories of even the vegan one. So way better than the real mayo. And if you want to really cut the cholesterol, use Earth Balance vegan butter, or Miyoko's Cultured Vegan Butter. I bet you like it just as much, and it's much healthier this way.

      Hi Au fait,

      Pinning this to Awesome Hubpages and will share once again. I have some feta cheese in the house right now and some corn...so this will soon be enjoyed.

      As to my website...you can find it at the top of any HP article. Finally finished but a work in progress. It will be continually added to as time passes.

      You had asked that I should write about my experience. My advice...go with a professional! They know all the ins and outs of designing one and make the cost worthwhile in the long term.

      Kristine Howe, thank you for checking out this recipe! There is no chili pepper in this recipe, but I guess there's no reason not to try it if you like them. This is modeled after the street corn that is served year around, especially in the summers, it's just an easy way to microwave it instead of all the work of grilling, etc.

      I hope you do try it. I know my daughter and I both really enjoy it for a treat.

      Paul Kuehn, thank you for checking out this recipe! You can control how much cheese you sprinkle on the top and you could use a low fat cheese if you prefer. Also, while butter, IMO, gives the best flavor, you could use a substitute. There are many on the market that don't include cholesterol.

      Thank you for the votes and FB post and share!

      Au fait, thank you very much for sharing another great recipe. I have never tried this, but I'm sure I would like it. The only problem is that at my age there has to be a lot of cholesterol in the butter and cheese which goes into this recipe. This would definitely be a good food for a picnic. Voted up as interesting and useful and sharing with HP followers and on Facebook.

      Hannah David Cini, thank you for checking out this recipe and commenting! I'm told the grilled corn has better flavor made this way, but my daughter and I really enjoyed it this way too, and it's faster, easier, and less mess to clean up afterwards. I think both ways are good, but sometimes you just want a quick tasty snack.

You'll still want to add some protein and maybe some sort of what I call a filler -- rice, potatoes, or pasta, etc. It does have protein in the cheese, but I'm not sure it's enough or if one serving of this dish will keep you from getting hungry in a half hour or so. :)

      George Wagner, thank you for letting me know you have tried this recipe, and how much you enjoy it along with the kids. It's easy enough that many children, say 10 years and up, could make it themselves.

      I'm a little bit behind on your articles. This recipe looks good and since your pumpkin pie recipe was so popular with my family, I'm going to try this one too. Just the single serving though for starters.

      I have never heard of sweetcorn ice cream. I recommend you write a hub about it and include a recipe if possible, if only because it's unique and something interesting about Asia.

      A new one on me, but looks tasty. Far more appealing than the sweetcorn ice cream in Asia (at least in my opinion).

      Minnetonka Twin, thank you for commenting on this hub. I, too, had a hard time imagining mayonnaise in this recipe, but I followed directions and was surprised and delighted with the results! It's just one serving, so give it a try as written and see if the same thing doesn't happen to you.

      Knew your bean dip was great the first time I read it through and thought it would be a great addition to my hub!

      vespawoolf, this recipe is a lot quicker and easier than Mexican street corn. Of course it doesn't have the grilled flavor, but I think it still tastes fantastic.

I will probably use less mayo and more cheese. I want to thank you for adding a link to my 5 layer Mexican Bean dip, recipe. I really appreciate it. I am glad to be a new follower.

      Thank you Glimmer Twin Fan for reading, commenting, voting, and pinning this hub! It is so incredibly fast and easy whether for a snack for one or a side dish for the whole family! That's if you use canned or frozen corn. If you decide to grill the corn first, then it's a little more work. ;)

      Jamie Brock, thank you for reading, and commenting on this hub. I hope your son will enjoy it, but if he's not into spicy, then leave the chili powder off. I still haven't tried it with chili powder myself. My daughter has and loves it, but I have only had it with all the other ingredients plus a bit of plain black pepper to taste.

      Diogenes, thank you for reading and commenting on this recipe. Do you dislike mayonnaise generally, or only when rancid? I think anyone would hate it rancid. Ewww :( Could make you sick that way too. This corn can be made with sour cream too, but I prefer the mayonnaise.

      We've had some cooler weather the last couple of days, but Wed. & Thurs were spring, in the upper 60s and even upper 70s on Thurs. Spring will be back in a couple of days again. I would happily trade our weather for yours even though ours was pretty nice, but I really hate hot. I like it to stay around 60 at the highest. In just a couple of months it will be back around a hundred! :(

      Corn on the cob and otherwise too is a very popular street snack food here too. Corn on the cob is roasted on smoldering charcoal which gives it a unique taste and aroma and then a mixture of salt and red chillies is applied with a sliced piece of lemon. I love it.

      Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipe. It looks delicious too.

      Voted up and interesting.

      Hola Misticita:

      Very popular among the poor in Mexico. I am not a fan, but it's OK when you can't find any tacos. I like it without mayonaise which is often rancid in Mexico.

      It's one of the least expensive fast-foods down south.
