Trader Joe's Everything but the Elote

L 130.72

Throughout Mexico and in cities across the U.S., street vendors sell mouthwatering, well-seasoned corn on the cob known as Elote. While the fixins may vary some from vendor to vendor, elote typically comes slathered in mayo or crema, rolled in grated Parmesan or cotija cheese, dusted with chili powder, and squirted with lime juice. As anyone who grew up visiting the neighborhood elotero or making elote at home can tell you, it's a highly crave-able combination of flavors that leaves a lifelong impression. 

 

Elotes are already pretty darn portable (they're usually served on sticks), but Trader Joe's Everything But the Elote Seasoning Blend takes it a step further, each jar containing everything you might find on elote—chile pepper, Parmesan cheese, chipotle powder, cumin, dried cilantro, sea salt, etc.—minus the corn itself. (We also add some corn flour & cane sugar, so there's really no mistaking what it's meant to mimic.) We put together a few recipes if you need elote inspiration because We Like It. We Like It Elote.
