Try these Irresistible Corn Recipes for a Taste of Summer

Camping Elotes

Camping Elotes

July is the peak time for peak corn so of course it needs to be featured during summer camp time. Here are two great recipes to celebrate National Corn Month.

Elote (Serves 4)

Recipe from


4 ears of corn

½ cup mayonnaise

Juice of ½ of a lime

1 teaspoon chili powder

½ teaspoon salt

½ cup Cotija cheese, crumbled

Chopped cilantro


Combine the mayonnaise, lime juice, chili powder and salt in a small bowl. Set aside. Peel the husks back from the corn but do not detach from the ear. Remove all silk and replace husks.

Place the corn on a grate over your campfire. Grill, turning frequently until the corn is charred in places and cooked through, about 10-15 minutes. Remove the corn from the grill and allow to cool so they are safe to handle. Remove and discard the husk. Slather each ear evenly with mayo/lime mix. Sprinkle the Cotija cheese and chopped cilantro over the top of each ear. Serve and enjoy.

Dutch Oven Jalapeno Cornbread

Recipe from


1 cup milk

1 egg

2 tablespoons honey

1 cup cornmeal

½ cup flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 4 ounce can green chilies, drained

¼ cup shredded cheddar cheese

2 tablespoons butter


Light 24 charcoal briquettes or start a campfire if you want to use wood embers. In a mixing bowl, beat the milk, egg, and honey together. Add the dry ingredients (cornmeal, flour, baking powder, and salt) and stir until combined. Move 7 of the charcoals or embers into a ring and place the Dutch oven on top. Once hot, add the butter to melt. After the butter has melted, pour in the cornmeal batter. Sprinkle the green chiles and cheese over the top. Cover the Dutch oven and place the remaining 17 charcoals or embers on top of the lid to create an oven heat of about 425 degrees. Cook for about 20 minutes, until the middle of the cornbread has cooked through, and the top is beginning to brown. Carefully remove from heat. Serve and enjoy.
