Peace. Love. Ranch.

Ranch Mexican Street Corn

Street vendors across Mexico have introduced this addicting snack recipe — also called Elotes — to countries around the world. Corn on the cob (on a stick) gets smothered in seasoned mayonnaise — ranch, in this case — and coated in chili powder, crumbled cotija cheese and fresh cilantro. What’s not to love?
