Elotes is a mexican street food of corn on the cob and it’s unbelievably awesome. Hot and buttery corn on the cob with garlic, a creamy mayonnaise and sour cream dressing, a bit of cheese, salt and chilli. It’s awesome and you should try it as street food – preferably as I first did after several beers having not eaten for a little bit. Awesome as elotes is, I’m pretty sure I would have loved boiled carpet at that point. Man oh man though, that elotes was some damned fine boiled carpet. So damned fine I needed to find a way to make it again, once the beer had worn off.
