Air Fryer Corn on the Cob

Vortex Air Fryer Corn on the Cob – Mexican Street Corn (Elote)

It is incredibly easy to make corn on the cob in a Vortex Air Fryer…or any air fryer for that fact!
Simply coat with butter ( or spray) and air fry for about 8 minutes. If you want to take it to another level, try Mexican Street corn otherwise called Elote!
I introduced this to my family a few years ago and it quickly became a family favorite. It’s especially nice that it can be made in under 10 minutes in my air fryer!
