Ive been to Mexico several times, granted most times in the walled comfort of an all inclusive. With every visit, we made a point to visit the sights and eat the local food as well, after all you dont really know a country until youve tasted its local cusine. Sadly I never really tried this street style corn till I tried it at a Mexican restaurant El Local Loco here in downtown Toronto. Corn is cooked then roasted, smothered in Mayo and topped with spices and cheese whats not to love?
A little recipe research and development and a new fave was born. When served this at the restaurant, they only topped one side with a dollop of stuff and presented the stalk with the husk but it had been cut off which I thought was weird. I prefer to get the topping all over the corn, so every bite has maximum flavour. I also pulled the husk back and tied it so you can use it as a handle to eat your corn.
