Roasted Corn with Chile: Elotes Asados con Chile

Total Time:
25 min

10 min

6 servings


Preheat a grill or grill pan. Grill the corn, turning frequently, to avoid over charring, about 10 minutes.

Let the corn cool just enough to handle and peel back the husks, leaving them attached at the bottom. (The husks are going to serve as handles when eating the corn.) Remove the corn silk and generously spread the ears with mayonnaise. Sprinkle the corn with the cheese and chile powder. Serve immediately.

Jalapeno Mayonnaise:

In a food processor, blend the garlic, jalapeno, and lime. Add the egg and salt, to taste. While the motor is running, drizzle in the oil until a smooth sauce is formed. Store in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Yield: about 2 cups

Guajillo Chile Powder:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Put the chiles on a small baking sheet and bake until browned, about 3 minutes. Let cool.

In a clean coffee or spice grinder, finely grind the chiles and transfer to a bowl. Stir in the salt and use as desired.

Yield: 2 1/2 tablespoons

Contains Raw Eggs: The Food Network Kitchen suggest caution in consuming raw and lightly cooked eggs due to the slight risk of salmonella or other food-borne illness. To reduce this risk, we recommend you use only fresh, properly refrigerated, clean grade A or AA eggs with intact shells, and avoid contact between the yolks or whites and the shell. For recipes that call for eggs that are raw or undercooked when the dish is served, use shell eggs that have been treated to destroy salmonella, by pasteurization or another approved method.
