This Traeger twist on a Mexican street food classic is muy bueno. Take grilled corn and mix it up with crema, lime, cotija cheese, garlic, and chili powder for an on-the-go treat.

Ingredients

  • 6 ears CORN, HUSKED
  • 1 cup CREMA MEXICANA
  • 1 tsp ANCHO OR GUAJILLO CHILI POWDER
  • 2 cloves ROASTED GARLIC, SMASHED
  • 1 cup CILANTRO, CHOPPED
  • JUICE OF 1 LIME
  • ZEST OF 1 LIME
  • SALT, TO TASTE
  • 1/2 cup COTIJA CHEESE
  • 6 ears CORN, HUSKED
  • 1 cup CREMA MEXICANA
  • 1 tsp ANCHO OR GUAJILLO CHILI POWDER
  • 2 cloves ROASTED GARLIC, SMASHED
  • 1 cup CILANTRO, CHOPPED
  • JUICE OF 1 LIME
  • ZEST OF 1 LIME
  • SALT, TO TASTE
  • 1/2 cup COTIJA CHEESE

Preparation

When ready to cook, start Traeger according to grill instructions. Set temperature to 450 degrees F (500 degrees if using a WiFIRE-enabled grill).

Brush grill grate with oil and grill corn, turning occasionally. After about 10 minutes, corn should be cooked through and slightly charred on the outside.

Cut kernels off the cob by standing corn cobs vertically and slicing downwards. In a bowl mix the grilled corn kernels with the remaining ingredients.

To serve, top corn with chopped cilantro and sprinkle with cotija cheese. Enjoy!

Chef's Note: This grilled corn salad is a variation on elote, or Mexican street corn. Elote is one of my favorite things to eat, I just think that all the ingredients work so well together, so whenever I see someone selling it on the street, it’s really tough for me not to buy one. It can be hard to eat corn on the cob though, so I wanted to make a corn salad that used those great elote flavors, but in a way that would be easier to eat and transport.
