Elote is Spanish for "corn," but it's so much more than your average corn on the cob.

It's what separates the basic-ass kernels from the GREAT ones.

This Mexican treat begins with a delicious roasted, boiled, or grilled corn on the cob.

The corn is first coated with a layer of melted butter, followed by a delicious mayo spread.

It is then rolled through a big pile of crumbled cotija cheese...

...and topped with a chili sauce or powder, which gives it that extra POW.

The corn is finally drizzled with lime juice and you'll question how you ever lived without this.
