This is my fun take on air-fried elote ribs. Cutting the corn this way causes them to curl up in the shape of ribs once cooked. This also makes the corn a lot easier to handle and eat, not to mention a lot less messy.

  • Place an ear of corn on a cutting board and cut in half lengthwise. Cut each half in half lengthwise. Repeat with remaining ear of corn. You should have 8 "ribs" total.

  • Whisk olive oil, chili powder, garlic powder, and black pepper together in a bowl until smooth. Brush onto both sides of each rib and place in the air fryer basket.

  • Air fry for 12 minutes, flipping halfway through the cook time.

  • Meanwhile whisk mayonnaise, lime juice, and hot sauce together until thoroughly combined.

  • Transfer corn ribs to a serving plate. Drizzle sauce over the ribs and top with cotija cheese and cilantro.

Don't know why, but quartering the corn was really difficult. It took a full 30 minutes. After the first ear, I just halved the others into niblets. I used the recipe though and it was great! I really like the sauce Read More
