Grilled Mexican Corn (Elotes)

Grilled Mexican Corn (Elotes)

The kickoff of summer grilling season is upon us, and I couldn’t be more stoked (pun intended). We’re having a tamale-and-tequila party, which will feature the above-pictured grilled elotes on my brand-new Char Broil grill, as well a shrimp ceviche, the titular tamales in a few varieties, and some other summer favorites.

Naturally I had to share a handful of our own best recipes that fit the Memorial Day bill. Plenty of shopping time left to prepare! Have at it!
