Mexican street corn, or elote, comes to life in this easy nacho adaptation.

Ingredients

8
cups Food Should Taste Good™ cantina tortilla chips
1 1/2
cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese (6 oz)
2
cups frozen corn, thawed
1
can (4.5 oz) Old El Paso™ chopped green chiles
1/2
cup crumbled queso fresco or cotija cheese
1/2
cup mayonnaise
1 1/2
teaspoons Old El Paso™ taco seasoning mix (from 1-oz package)
1
tablespoon lime juice
Make it FRESH toppings, as desired (see below)

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 400°F. Line a rimmed baking pan with foil, and spray with cooking spray. Spread half of chips evenly in pan.
  • 2 Sprinkle half of Monterey Jack cheese over chips. Drop half of corn over chips, followed by half of green chiles. Repeat layers.
  • 3 Bake 9 to 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix mayonnaise, taco seasoning mix and lime juice. Drizzle over nachos, and top with crumbled cheese and toppings. Serve immediately.
Tips  

Ideas for Make it FRESH toppings: Chopped fresh cilantro leaves, sliced jalapeño chiles or drizzle of Sriracha sauce, sliced green onions, fresh salsa.

We have seasoned mayonnaise in this recipe to drizzle over the nachos; however, you can use Mexican crema, and season that with lime and taco seasoning just as easily.
