Have you ever had Grilled Elote, aka Mexican Street Corn? There is something magical about this Mexican street corn grilled corn on the cob covered in a spicy, buttery topping. I recommend Elote as a must-try!

Now there’s a lot of different ways to prepare street corn, some love using mayo instead of butter to bind all the ingredients. To give our elote spicy edge we use Sonoran Spice Habanero Grill Seasoning. This seasoning is hot, using fresh habanero peppers and citrus.

Habanero has many health benefits. Pulling in around 100,000 to 500,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU), ranking habaneros in the same group as the hottest peppers. Peppers contain capsaicin, this part of the pepper is what raises your body temperature, boosting your metabolism.

Now this treat is messy, corn on the cob in general isn’t the easiest thing to eat. I like to make extra toppings for later. Squeeze fresh lime over the top to make this recipe a 10/10!
