This recipe is a little different that the other Esquites already posted. It uses fresh corn kernels that are roasted in a skillet, not on the cob. I love esquites and eat it in Mexico whenever I get a chance. I am unable to include 1/2 jalapeño pepper in the ingredient list, so I am putting it here.
