mexican street corn * elotes

i pray God's blessings for you and your family this new year.  remember the "old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."  2 Cor 5:17 kjv .

today, i want to show you how to make mexican corn or 'elotes.'  we sell them at my church when service lets out to raise funds for different ministries.  this is a very popular treat among the young and the young - at - hearts and therefore a great seller.  it doesn't take a huge investment and makes a nice little profit.  i hope you give them a try.

you take whole corn on the whole cob (or halved cobs) and boil them in slightly salted water.

when done, remove from boiled water with tongs and dry corn off. do not run them under cold water or put them in an ice bath.  if you are using a whole corn, you may choose to put a skewer on the cut end of the whole cob (or not).

you want to shmear a little mayo all over the dried, hot corn.  it helps if the mayo is at room temperature for this endeavor.

once that has been done, you then coat the corn all over using grated (not shredded) parmesan or cotija cheese. next sprinkle some fruit seasoning called pico de gallo.  this is not to be confused with the red, white and green 'mexican flag' salad also called pico de gallo.

if you need something to tide you until dinner this is definitely a quick fix.  it's also ideal for picnics!  did i tell you it'sreally delicious?  if not, it is!  you should go make some.  like now!
