Old Major Elote Sausage: A Creative Twist on Classic Mexican Street Corn


Elote, a traditional Mexican street food, epitomizes the vibrant and rich culinary culture of Mexico. This dish consists of grilled corn on the cob, slathered in a creamy mix of mayonnaise, cotija cheese, and chili powder, then finished with a generous squeeze of lime juice. The combination of sweet corn with the tangy, spicy, and creamy topping makes elote an irresistible treat that captures the essence of Mexican cuisine’s bold flavors and varied textures.

Drawing inspiration from this beloved snack, Old Major has crafted an innovative Elote Sausage that encapsulates the essence of elote in a delightful new form. This sausage combines the savory goodness of pork with the quintessential elote ingredients: cotija cheese, cilantro, paprika, cayenne, garlic, and, crucially, sweet corn. Each bite of the Old Major Elote Sausage is a homage to the original street corn, blending the smoky sweetness of grilled corn with the rich depth of pork and the tangy kick of cotija cheese and spices.

This inventive sausage offers a unique twist on traditional sausage flavors, providing an exciting culinary adventure that pays tribute to the original elote while introducing a novel experience for the palate. It’s an expression of creativity in the kitchen, showcasing how classic flavors from one dish can inspire entirely new creations, merging cultures and culinary traditions in the process.

For those looking to enjoy the Old Major Elote Sausage, there’s a simple yet delicious preparation method that enhances its flavors. Start by grilling the sausages over medium heat, turning them occasionally until they’re evenly browned and cooked through. This method not only imbues the sausage with a smoky char reminiscent of the grilled corn in traditional elote but also allows the fat to render and the flavors to meld beautifully. Serve these succulent sausages in a warm tortilla, topped with a dollop of sour cream, a sprinkle of extra cotija cheese, and a dash of lime juice for a meal that brings the essence of Mexican street corn right to your plate, with a delightful twist that’s sure to impress.
