Mexico - Esquites

 In July 2013 I made Huaraches from Mexico and I'm excited to make more Mexican food :D

First up are Esquites! Esquites are very similar to Elotes but the difference is this recipe has loose corn usually sold in a cup as street food. It's sometimes called elote en vaso or little corn-cup. Cute!


4 ears corn
2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons mayo
2 ounces feta
1/2 cup chopped coriander
1 teaspoon garlic granules
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 lime, juiced

Using a knife scrape all of the corn off the cobs into a bowl.

Heat the oil in a frying pan and saute the corn until it's charred and browned some. About 10 minutes. While the corn is cooking put the remaining ingredients in a bowl.

When the corn is ready tip it into the bowl and mix well. Serve in small bowls or cups.

Wow! Esquites certainly pack a punch. This was very flavourful. It was difficult to taste all the separate flavours as they just combine to make one strong taste. JD and I both really liked it but found it hard to eat very much of it. All the ingredients had mixed together to make a lovely creamy, fiery and tangy sauce that covered the corn perfectly. Interesting but still delicious!
