If you are a cilantro lover, like me, this cilantro corn on the cob recipe is going to make you drool.
I used cilantro, green enchilada sauce and spices blended together and then, doused the corn with it. It was then cooked in a pressure cooker for a few minutes. You can also use a regular grill to make it.
This is one of those recipes that makes EVERYONE drool. It’s that combination of corn, cotija and tajin that makes this elote recipe completely irresistible!
