Elotes con Queso Cotija (Mexican Style Corn on Cob)

Since we came back from Mexico we all have been craving a nice yummy elote (corn on cob) with lots of cotija cheese, so I got myself into the mission of finding corn and I did! =)

Although these elotes are not the same type we get in Mexico at least we calmed our cravings. In Mexico white corn is the one you will find in any street food stand that sell elotes, these people are called Eloteros and they sell boiled corn on cob, grilled corn on cob or corn in a cup (which is mu ultimate super mega yummy Mexican snack) and there are different ways to prepare them, but the basic way is: salted butter, cheese, valentina sauce! (Which is a spicy super red sauce made with puja chillies. Valentina is the name given to the salsa).Here in this post I will share with you three ways to prepare your elotes: Traditional way, with coriander (cilantro) and chipotle mayo.Ingredients
