Elote Pasta Salad
This is the summer of corn. I've been eating so much of it lately and putting it into everything!
I couldn't decide if I wanted this to be a creamy pasta salad or not so I used burrata cheese so that some bites would be creamy and some wouldn't! You could totally add mayo though and make it a creamy pasta salad if you want!
If you don't have access to a Trader Joes, you could make your own elote seasoning at home! I would use 1 tsp cayenne pepper, 2 tbsp cotija cheese and then 1/4 tsp cumin powder. The lime juice and cilantro that are added to the pasta salad will add a more "street corn" flavor to the overall dish as well.

1 tbsp is way too much cayenne. My sister made this today and it ruined the whole dish. Definitely only do 1 tsp if you don’t have the Trader Joe’s seasoning and have to make your own version per the recipe.

Hi Becca, I'm so sorry that happened. I adjusted the recipe above, I originally meant to type tsp but I think there was a typo when I published the post and I missed it!!

How many servings does this make and is it okay if I don’t have orzo pasta ?

Hi Christiana, you can def use another shape besides orzo. I would use close to 1 lb of pasta to match up to the amount of orzo accounted for in this recipe! Serving size is hard for this one since most people eat smaller portions of it as it is a side dish, but leftovers are always welcomed in my house ;)
