Have you ever tried Mexican street corn (elote)? It is an absolute favorite of mine and it was the source of inspiration for today's recipe. It’s incredibly tasty, as well as addicting and oh yes —very messy! 

With Hispanic Heritage Month upon us, I thought I would pick up some Avocados From Mexico and whip up a dish to help celebrate my heritage. I love these because they're always fresh, in season and delicious!
This Mexican Street Corn Toast is made using Bimbo® Bread, topped with mashed avocados and grilled corn on the cob, smeared with mayo and crema and sprinkled with Cotija cheese, fresh cilantro, chile powder and lime.

I know the flavors sound unusual if you’ve never had it before, but they're not.

The mayo melts right into the corn to take on a whole new flavor and acts as the "glue" that holds everything together.
Here's everything you'll need to make the Mexican Street Corn Toast: Bimbo® Soft Wheat Bread, mayo, crema, lime, Avocados From Mexico, corn, cilantro, salt, Cotija cheese, chile powder.
Step 1. Grill the corn.
Step 2. Coat the corn with Mayo. Then slice Kernels from the cob.
Step 3. Mash the avocados and spread over toast.
Step 4. Add your corn kernels on top of the avocado toast.
Step 5. Sprinkle Cotija cheese.
Step 6. Add a few sprinkles of cilantro.
Step 7. Drizzle your crema.
Step 8. Garnish with chile powder, lime and your favorite hot sauce (optional). Now enjoy!
