Elote dip for everyone!

Arden really loves complex flavors and he hadn’t had corn yet. I wanted to give him some in puree form since corn kernels can be a choking hazard. The corn, sour cream, cilantro combo really had him loving this. He loves anything with cumin too so it was a double hit!

Information on corn for babies can be found through Solid Starts.

What you’ll need for this Elote Dip for Adults and Babies

  • Cutting board for chopping cilantro
  • Bowl for mixing and/or serving
  • A small blender or food processor for baby’s food

Ingredients Needed:

  • 1 15oz can of unsalted corn
  • Sour cream
  • Cumin
  • Lime juice
  • Cilantro

Add for the adults version:

  • Smoked paprika
  • Salt
  • Crumbly Mexican cheese like cotija or queso fresco
  • Chips for eating

How to make the dip

Step 1:

Add the unsalted corn (drained), sour cream, cumin, lime juice, and cilantro to a bowl (measurements in recipe card below). Mix well.

At this point if you are making some for baby, remove their portion and blend it and set aside.

Step 2:

Add in the remaining ingredients, stir, and pop it in the fridge for about an hour. It can be eaten immediately but letting it get cold really amps up the flavors.


Store this in the fridge for up to 4 days. I don’t recommend freezing this.
