This is a super easy recipe. If you’ve never had Elote, it’s basically a Mexican street food that consists of grilled corn on the cob, topped with mayonnaise or other sauce and some kind of cheese (though there are a few different variations of it out there). It’s definitely a crowd-pleaser! Here's a vegan version to try instead of the classic.

How to Prepare Easy Elote: Mexican Corn on the Cob [Vegan]

  1. Cook your corn by either grilling or steaming it. Technically Elote uses grilled corn, but if you don't have access to a grill, you can steam until the corn turns a dark yellow and becomes tender.
  2. Using a butter knife, spread the vegan mayo on the corn cob until coated.
  3. Roll your coated corn across a plate or other dish with the vegan bacon bits. You may need to crush the bacon pieces so that they will stick more easily.
  4. Mix your spices, vegan parmesan, cilantro and pepper in a bowl. While rotating the corn, sprinkle on the mixture until it sticks between the vegan bacon. Press into it if needed, so the toppings stick.
  5. Serve with corn cob holders or skewers and enjoy!
