What Is Mexican Street Corn?
Mexican Street Corn or Elote is a simple way to prepare and serve corn on the cob.
Air Fryer Mexican Street Corn On The Cob is typically made by roasting corn on the cob and then serving it with a blend of Cojita Cheese and fresh herbs.
The flavor usually arrives by roasting the corn over a charcoal grill, but today, we substitute the grill for the air fryer–the same great taste only easier!

How To Make Air Fryer Mexican Street Corn On The Cob
Using a pastry brush, brush the oil over the corn—Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F, air fryer setting, for 5 minutes. Then add the corn.
Place the corn on the cob into the air fryer basket, and set the time for 10 minutes, flipping the corn about halfway during the cooking process.
Then sprinkle the cheese over the corn on the cob, and air fry for another 2 to 3 minutes, until the cheese starts to melt.
Substitutions for Cojita Cheese:
While traditional Mexican Corn is topped with Cojita cheese, if you can not find any, there are several substations that you can use, including Feta Cheese or Parmesan Cheese.
Cojita Cheese is usually found in the deli department in the cheese case.
What To Serve With Street Corn:
I usually serve this with a typical hamburger, hot dog, or ribs meal. I feel that the flavors go well with BBQ dishes.
But, you can also serve this as an appetizer or alongside homemade tortillas or salsa. Air Fryer Mexican Street Corn On The Cob goes amazing with so many dishes, and it’s so fun to eat!
This is a gluten-free, and kid-friendly side dish, which everyone loves!
