Grilled corn on the cob is a popular street food throughout Mexico. Special carts equipped with charcoal burners, a small wash tub, and condiment jars are peddled (literally) throughout the neighborhoods with the vendors shouting "Elotes" Some of the best corn-on-the-cob I have eaten!
Fresh white corn would be better, but this recipe includes corn from the can. This would be a great side for steak or even a topping for chicken. Feel free to adjust the spices as you see fit. We love a lot of spice & herb in our foods, so if it's too much, cut back.
I'm not sure where in Mexico this is eaten, but it doesn't matter, it's good! Adapted from Gourmet magazine (2006). I find the cotija cheese in super Walmart (or use feta). Cook time is estimated for cooking of corn.
This is really a people pleaser and you can add things you like to it. You could add ground beef, you could also fry an egg and put it on top. Just have fun with your recipes. This recipe holds well, so it can be made ahead of time. You could use frozen corn as well, but this is for those times when you get that bumper crop of corn.
This is a traditional corn pudding, served at Christmastime in Bolivia. Maybe I’ll make it this year as part of our menu. The recipe comes from 365 Ways to Cook Vegetarian. The original recipe called for raisins, but I’ve omitted them.
From the back package of a bag of Pictsweet brand frozen corn kernels. I enjoy finding recipes serendipitously! In summertime, try this using fresh corn! I'd also be inclined to add a few slices of red onion if the mood struck me.
