This Flamin Hot Cheetos Elote Corn recipe is so easy that you do not need to be exact when measuring ingredients. Add more or less ingredients for your own taste choices.

Flamin Hot Cheetos Elote Corn

What is Elote Corn?

Traditional elote is corn on the cob covered in butter, mayonnaise, cotija cheese and chili powder. But today we are using Flamin Hot Cheetos! 



  1. Cook your corn, I chose to boil mine but steamed or even grilled would work great!
  2. While your corn is cooking add Flaming Hot cheetos to your ziplock bag (remove the air from the bag) and crush with your rolling pin or meat mallet. Transfer to a dish or plate for easy coating.
  3. Slice your lime into small wedges
  4. Once your corn is cooked, roll or spread your mayonnaise onto your corn, cover well
  5. Roll your corn in your crushed Cheetos and again coat well.
  6. Transfer onto a serving plate, squeeze 1 to 2 lime wedges over corn, and top with fresh or dried cilantro
  7. Your Flamin Hot Cheetos Corn on the Cob Is Now Ready
  8. Add an extra lime wedge to each plate

Serve and enjoy.

Best Served Grilled

Anytime you serve Corn on the Cob it is always served best grilled but not all of us have outdoor grill on hand, so I have boiled my corn for this recipe as a short cut.

  • Fresh corn on the cob – once your corn cut off the cob – boil 1.5 cups of water with 1 tbsp sugar. Add your corn and boil for 3-5 minutes. Then drain and let cool for 5 min.
  • Frozen corn – heat according to directions on the bag – typically microwave/steam for 6 minutes.

Can you use something other than mayonnaise?

Sure! You could swap out with Mexican crema, sour cream or nonfat plain yogurt if you’re not a fan of mayo.
