I have been wanting to make something incorporating hot Cheetos for quite a while. I thought about making either Flaming hot Cheeto Mac and Cheese or Hot Cheetos chicken nuggets. I love street corn. In fact, I have already made Elote before. I wanted to take my taste buds to the next level, so I decided to make Flamin Hot Cheetos Grilled Corn Elote Style.
When I brought this up that I was making this for dinner, I got some mixed reactions. At the end of the dinner, they LOVED IT!
Put the Cheetos in a food processor and pulse. Alternatively, you can put them in a Ziplock bag and crush them with a rolling pin. Place the crushed Cheetos in a large shallow dish.
In a small bowl, combine the melted butter and lime zest. With a brush, spread the mixture onto the corn.
Grill the corn for 10 minutes, turning once halfway.
In another bowl, add the lime juice, sour cream and mayo. Brush the grilled corn with the mayo sour cream sauce and toss in the Cheetos after. Repeat with the rest.
