Street Corn Nachos

Street corn nachos are already a favorite of many, what’s not to love about delicious fresh corn cooked with butter and then smothered in a mix of mayo, crema, lime, fire-roasted serranos, mango salsa and chili powder, served with a sprinkle of queso cotija. We find this combo irresistible and very addictive.

Here we take Mexican street corn to the next level and serve it with tortilla chips and melted cheese for a tasty snack that you will make on repeat.

For our recipe, we combine the cooked corn kernels with Gran Luchito Chipotle Paste, creme fraiche as a substitute for Mexican crema, mayo, lime, and coriander, and mix everything together to make delicious Mexican-style elotes.

Then we layer Gran Luchito Lightly Salted Tortilla Chips in a baking tray, add a good amount of cheese, and bake it in the oven until the cheese is melted and deliciously gooey.

Finally, you have to spoon the Mexican elotes on top, crumble the feta cheese on top for a salty touch and serve!
