For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍

Our Mexican Street Corn is inspired by a very popular Mexican street food called “elote”, which is a typical street food of grilled corn, smothered with mayonnaise and topped with shredded cojita cheese and chili powder. 

Our version takes wweetcorn lightly coated with lime infused yogurt with a touch of hot chili powder and crumbled Feta cheese. 

It’s simply addicting and combines the flavour sensations of sweet, spicy, sour and savoury.

We first discovered this on a business trip to Arizona, the hotel had the most amazing Mexican restaurant on site.

When we arrived Mexican didn’t really excite me, but when we left, we were absolute converts!

We’ve made this Slimming World, Weight Watchers and Calorie Counting friendly, by replacing the Mayo with 0% Greek Yogurt & spraying the corn with Low Calorie Cooking Spray when they came out of the oven rather than slathering them in butter!

Lastly, the lime wedge, don’t skip it!! It’s so essential!! Really adds another dimension to the corn!

How many Syns are in this Mexican Street Corn?

If you use some ofone of your Healthy Extra A allowances, then this Mexican Street Corn is Syn Free! We use 65g of light Feta which is one of your HEA allowances, and this is split between 4, so you’ll only use 1/4. Hurrah! If you prefer you can replace the Yogurt with mayo, or even sour cream – just remember to Syn it if you do!

If you wanted to Syn the Feta, then they would work out at 1.5 Syns each.

You can make them as hot or as mild as you like. Start at 1/4 tsp of chilli powder & work your way up from there. Want more heat? Just add it in.

How Weight Watchers friendly is this Mexican Street Corn recipe?

If you want to boil your corn in the traditional way then this recipe will work just as well!

How do I make this Mexican Street Corn?

Step 1

Cook the corn in any way you want. Grilled tastes best, but I save time by using my Instant Pot or pressure cooker. Just put a rack or steaming basket in the pot, place the corn on the trivet, and add about 1 & 1/2 cups water. Enough to cover the bottom by a good 1/2 inch but not rise above the bottom of the trivet. Cook at high pressure for 4 minutes. Quick-release pressure manually.

You can also put it into a pan of boiling water for 5 minutes or so.

Step 2

While the corn is cooking, make the sauce. Combine the yogurt, feta, chilli powder & salt. Stir well.

Step 3

As soon as the corn is cooked, spray with Low Calorie Cooking Spray and rub the sauce all over. Place cobs on a plate, dust with Paprika & Coriander. Garnish with the lime wedges and serve!
