Indfused’s Chipotle Elote

My version of the famous Mexican style spicy corn on the cob!

Indian fusion recipe for grilled corn on the cob using #Cacique cotija cheese and #Embasa chipotle peppers
Indfused’s Chipotle Elote takes the love of Indian bhutta to a whole new level!

Memorial Day marks the start of the outdoor grilling season that I enjoy. Indian bhutta or street corn is a tantalizing treat with lemon juice, salt and red chili powder rubbed on the corn roasted over hot coals.

I have incorporated that taste in Grilled Corn Bhel salad and Corn Hurda in Papad Bowl. Another favorite of mine is the Sounds Corny but Seriously the Best Corn on the Cob.

Indfused’s Chipotle Elote takes the love of bhutta to a whole new level with an Indian version of the spicy chipotle sauce slathered on and then coated with the creamy, salty cotija cheese.

Now, that is my definition of  lip smacking good! You gotta try it!

Indfused's Chipotle Elote

  • Servings: 4
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Ingredients-

For the sauce-

  • 2 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon chiles in adobo sauce, ground. I used Embasa brand chiles in adobo.
  • 1 ½ teaspoons brown sugar or honey
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Salt to taste

 

  • ½ cup cotija cheese. I used Cacique brand part skim cotija cheese
  • 4 corn on the cob

To make Indfused’s Chipotle Elote-

  1. Combine all ingredients for the sauce and heat it over medium heat. Let it simmer for about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. This sauce can also be made in advance and refrigerated.
  2. In a separate bowl, grate the cotija cheese.
  3. Shuck the corn, peeling back the husk and removing the silk. For a pretty presentation, braid the husk. Roast the corn over a hot grill.
  4. Brush on the chipotle sauce and sprinkle with the cotija cheese.
  5. Sink your teeth into it and enjoy!

Wishing you all a Happy Memorial Day weekend!

Love,

    1. Thanks so much Indah! It really is yummy especially if you like spicy food like me 🙂

    1. Absolutely Laura! This was such a hit at the bbq with the grilled fresh corn and the balance of the spicy, sweet and salty combination of spices.

      1. Now you’re making me regret selling my BBQ – a decision we took last year after going vegetarian…..should have kept it for the effect it has on veggies!

      2. I did not have a good bbq for ages, so now I am obsessed with it.
        I admire you going vegetarian! What a healthy choice.

    1. Thanks so much Sumith. The combination of spicy, sweet and salty makes this a huge favorite at bbqs!
