Healthier Elote

No Mexican meal is complete without elote, especially when paired with tacos. Since I had already made the tacos healthier by oven-frying the avocados I decided I needed to do the same with the corn. All I did was swap out the mayo for Greek yogurt, but could not tell the difference.

These ears of corn we baked in the oven, but I usually prefer grilling them with the husks on. Unfortunately I do not own an outdoor grill but if you do, soak in water beforehand or wrap in foil so the husks don’t catch on fire!
