Elote, Elote!

Mmmm. Tonight we build a fire in the pit in the backyard and roasted 24 elotes. Elotes are corn on the cobs done up mexican style with mayonaise, queso seco, lime and chili powder. You can boil them but tonight we all agreed that fire roasted totally changes the flavor and is far superior. You can get them a lot of times for a couple bucks from someone selling them on a cart.

Now, every single person (myself included) who we have ever offered one to has been grossed out and less than enthusiastic about trying it.

And, every single person who we have ever offered one to was sold within two bites. They are freakin delicious!

If you ever see someone selling them in the street get one! You will be hooked. They are a such a treat. Keep in mind they are very messy but the key to enjoying it fully is to just mash away at it regardless of all the stuff ALL over your hands and face. Think kid enjoying an ice cream.

Mmmm. Mmmm. So good!
