XOtes (Grilled Mexican Street Corn With XO Sauce)

For a riff on classic elotes (grilled Mexican street corn), fold XO sauce into the traditional mix of mayonnaise, crema, and salty Cotija cheese, before slathering it all over lightly charred ears of fresh, sweet corn. The spicy, sweet, and savory punch of XO gives the corn an umami boost, as well as textural contrast, with the chewy crunch of the XO’s seafood and ham complementing the juicy pop of the corn kernels.
