Move over corn, there’s a new veggie just begging to be Elote’d. If you’re unfamiliar with Elote, its a delicious dish of cooked sweet corn slathered in a spicy mixture of mayonnaise, crema, chili powder and sprinkled with cheese. However, ever since Trader Joe’s launched their Everything but the Elote seasoning, I’ve been on a mission to Elote everything.

This recipe is super quick and simple, diet friendly, and makes a killer side dish or snack!

  • Air Fryer


Zucchini Chips
  • 1 Zucchini Sliced into thin chips
  • 1 tsp Vegetable Oil
  • 1 tbsp Everything But the Elote Seasoning* *If you can't find it at Trader Joe's, you can make a variation of it using the below recipe
  • 1 tbsp Cotija Cheese
Homemade Elote Seasoning
  • 2 tsp Paprika
  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • 1 tsp Chipotle Pepper Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Salt

  • Cut zucchini into thin chip and put in a mixing bowl
  • Add oil to zucchini, toss to coat slices in oil
