Elotes Queso:

2 tablespoons butter

1 teaspoon salt

2–3 ears of corn, roasted (2 cups)

1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

1/4 cup V&V Supremo® Queso Fresco

chili powder


limes to squeeze over chips



Garlic and Jalapeño: Heat the butter and olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the jalapeños and garlic and sauté for 5-10 minutes, until very soft and fragrant (but don’t burn or brown the garlic).

Flour, Milk, and Cheese: Add flour and stir until everything is coated – about one minute. Add the milk slowly and whisk until a smooth bubbly mixture comes together. Remove from heat and stir in the Chihuahua® Brand Quesadilla Cheese until smooth and melty. Low and slow!

Topping and serving: Season with salt and stir in most of the corn. Arrange a little “elotes pile” on top: remaining corn, cilantro, queso fresco, and chili powder. Best served warm with tortilla chips for dipping! YUUUUUM.

Enjoy !!
