Elote is not just for food trucks. You can make this Mexican street corn at home, and it can be as simple or complicated as you desire—just be sure to consider the key elements of salt, fat, acid, and heat. I like to smoke the corn using my cast-iron grill pan in the oven, but if you have an outdoor grill the flavor is even better. Smoking the corn envelops it in a rich hickory flavor, and gets the kernels soft and juicy before slathering on the mayo, seasonings, and herbs. Don’t hold back
