I have an confession… I have never had Elotes. Like this was something I had never heard of before moving to Texas and I still haven’t tried it. But here it’s pretty much everywhere, even in front of gas stations.

I guess that some people even use the Flamin’ Hot Cheetos to make Flamin’ Hot Elotes. They crush them up and coat corn on the cob with it to spice things up!


Well, Cheetos swapped it and brought the elotes to the Cheetos! From what I learned looking at recipes, elotes is made with corn on the cob and then it is coated in a mixtures of mayo, sour cream, spices, and lime juice.

So, I can only guess that the new Mexican Street Corn Cheetos will have those same flavors infused in one of our favorite crunchy snacks!

Instagram user snackbetch posted a good closeup of the new snack and you can see on the bag that Chester is holding a lime with what looks to be Tajin chili powder on it.

According to one of our favorite food Instagram accounts, markie_devo, There are a whole bunch of new chips and snacks coming out!

  2. I work for a small grocery store chain, and our buyer let us sample some of the new flavors. Let me tell you, the Mexican Street Corn Cheetos are the bomb!! I usually don’t care for all the new flavors every snack company has to try, but this is an item I would buy very often!

    I also have never had elotes and knew nothing of it until reading this. (Heck, I stumbled on this article just trying to find when these Cheetos were going to hit the market or where I could get another bag NOW.) But, if elotes are anything like these Cheetos, I need to be making that on a weekly basis. Yummy!

    FYI, the Funyun flavored Lay’s are just ok. I didn’t get to try the Jerk Chicken, but I think that sounds pretty yummy as well! Thanks for letting me know I have a few more weeks to wait to get my hands on these again. 🙁
