Since I was shut out in TJ looking for my elote. I decided to come home and make my own. It sounds strange but it is seriously yummy. Try it!
Grill a corn on the BBQ till golden. Spread with a thin later of mayo. Sprinkle Cotija Cheese on it. Light squeeze of lime.
OK now that I'm making you go out and buy Cotija Cheese (I use the Cacique brand) here's what else can you do with it:
Sprinkle it on refried beans, soups, salads, and mix it in my rockin guacamole.
2 large California Avocados (I use Hass)
1 medium Tomato, seeded and chopped
juice of half a Lime
3 Tablespoons Cotija Cheese, crumbled
3 Tablespoons Cilantro, chopped
1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly Ground Black Pepper
1 Tablespoon (or more to taste) Hot Sauce (I use Cholula)
Scoop the flesh out of the avocados into a bowl. Mash avocado till partially mashed but still some chunks. Add remaining ingredients. Mix well.
