A Healthier Elote in a Cup

Elote is a popular Mexican street food, a grilled corn on the cob slathered with a crema mayonnaise mixture. Delicious, but not so easy on the stomach and hips.

Using an easy substitute of Greek yogurt brings this street food home for me. Because I cut the kernals from the cob and served them in a cup, this should be called esquites, but since I didn't saute the cut corn in butter, i'm calling this elote in a cup.

Doesn't matter the name cuz it's just plain delicious.

Happy Healthy Tips: Genetically Modified foods pose serious health risks, be sure to chose non-GMO corn.

Healthy Elote in a Cup

6 Grilled corn cobs, cut from the cob
2 cups Greek yogurt
2 limes
1 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp ground chili powder
3 chopped green onions
2 thinly sliced radishes
Cojita cheese
Tajin Classico Seasoning (if you don't have this, you can fake it with salt, chili powder and lime)

Grill corn and cut from the cob. I find it easier to do this in a big bowl rather than on a cutting board (keeps more of the corn in the bow.)

Mix together the yogurt, juice of 1 lime, cumin and the chili powder. Cut the remaining lime in half, and then into quarters.

  • Place a few scoops of corn in a small bowl or cup.
  • Add a good dollop of the yogurt. Sprinkle on green onions and add a couple of radish slices.
  • Crumble the cojita cheese over the top
  • Serve with or squeeze on a lime wedge
  • Sprinkle with the tajin classico seasoning



  1. This Eolte looks yummy, is it spicy? or just a normal one? Thanks for sharing the recipe too, i will love to make them for my kids and for myself too.

    1. Its not too spicy. It just depends on how much chili powder and Tajin you use.
