How to Make Air Fryer Mexican Street Corn
Be sure to see the recipe card below for the full listing of ingredients, instructions, notes, and estimated nutritional information.
For this recipe you’ll need the following ingredients:
- Corn on the cob – I love to use fresh corn on the cob when available. You can also use frozen corn that has been thawed.
- Cheese – Use crumbled Cotija or Feta cheese
- Seasonings: chili powder and Stone House Seasoning
- Cilantro – chopped fresh is best to use in this recipe
- Lime – cut into wedges
Here’s how I make it.
Start with corn on the cob. If it is fresh, be sure to clean and silk the corn. If it is frozen, be sure that it is thawed.
Place the corn into the air fryer basket and cook for 10 minutes at 390 degrees.
Then, I sprinkle the cheese onto my corn and cook for five more minutes.
Once done, I remove it from the air fryer and top with chili powder and Stone House Seasoning, along with fresh cilantro. I serve it with fresh lime wedges.
You may know that traditional Mexican Street Corn also has a thick coating of mayonnaise on the corn. You can definitely add that if you’d like, I just wanted to reduce the unnecessary calories and fat from this recipe. If you want to add, I would rub each ear of corn with ¼ cup of mayonnaise before sprinkling it with the cheese and cooking for the final five minutes.
Here’s my Air Fryer Mexican Street Corn Recipe. I hope you love it as much as we do.

I don’t have a air fryer now 🙁
I love this recipe bc I love corn in any styles. I often boil corns with coconut water xD
Is it possible if I fry the corn by my charcoal oven? I think it suits perfectly for a bbq party!
You can definitely roast the corn on the grill, Natalie. If you get an air fryer, it’s so easy and delish – and fast – cooked in it! Thanks!
My mom always used her pressure cooker.
This sounds so good! I have an Air Fryer and would LOVE more recipes for it and an Electric Pressure Cooker too!
This is so delicious, Sandy! I will be sharing many more Instant Pot, or pressure cooker, and Air Fryer recipes to come! They are such delicious time savers, aren’t they?!
I have some Instant Pot recipes already here on the site you may want to check out if you haven’t seen them yet.
I hope you enjoy this, Sandy! Thanks so much! xo

Hi. I also have the same air fryer as you too. I keep telling my friends “you have to get one of these” I love it. I really hope you can post more recipes!! I was only saying the other day about trying out baked potatoes in it and now you’ve reminded me. Will try some this week. I have to say I love the way it cooks crispy bacon. So worth it for that alone, yum!! I’m experimenting all the time and I’d never be without it now. Thank you
